I am really excited because I actually stuck to last week's menu plan. Something about actually putting it in writing gives me accountability.
So, here's the plan for this week.
Sunday: Roasted Eggplant and Red Pepper Paninis with Salad
Monday: Red Beans and Rice in the slow cooker
Tuesday: Bean Burgers (from scratch) with Sweet Potato Fries
Wednesday: Homemade Macaroni and Cheese with Green Beans
Thursday: Jeremy has a meeting so leftovers or cereal!
Friday: Homemade Pumpkin Soup and Grilled Cheese
Saturday: Leftovers or Tuna Melts
As with last week, I built my menu on what I had on hand that needed to be used up. If you don't count the $20 that I spent on cat litter, my grocery bill for the week was only $40. That is miraculous for me. And yes, that's with no coupons or anything.
I'm happy to share recipes. If any of our meals sound particularly appealing to you, let me know and I will post the recipe (after I give it a trial run, of course).
