Here are meals from week 4 of the $50 grocery budget.
Truth be told, we went a tiny bit over on the budget this past week (like $55), but Kroger was having a big sale and I had coupons for the items, too. It was stuff we have to buy anyway (dogfood, paper towels, toilet paper, dish soap), so I figured why not go a little bit over budget but get the stuff for $2 off. It turned out okay, because we were under budge this week. As of now, we are stocked on paper towels, toilet paper, clothes and dish soaps, meat (for 12 meals), vegetables, and staples (flour, sugar, spices). We figure we can get by with just the basics next week and balance the budget out.
Here's the menu from last week!
whole wheat pasta, tomato paste and sauce and spices, chicken, lowfat cheese
baked chicken breast on a green salad
fish and spinach
baked salmon with spices over spinach madelinne
cans of chicken broth, creamed corn, diced tomatoes with onion and garlic powders and a chicken breast served with whole grain tortilla chips and cheese
We did not cook at home.
