Last week, I was fairly successful with the meal plan. The only item that never got made was the ramen noodles, oddly enough.
The problem with planning a week’s worth of meals and NOT making them is that you often find yourself committing expensive mistakes. First, you have massive food spoilage. Second, you then waste money in the drive through or, worse, at more expensive sit-down restaurants.
I’ve been guilty of both.
Now, I’ve already spent the money and bought this week’s groceries. So, it’s extremely important that I make the list count and work for me.
I have several new ones on my list, so I’m kinda worried about it.
Just as last week, I
lazily ingeniously focused on one main blog of recipes I had saved from Dropbox (A Spicy Perspective), I did the same this week with Deep South Dish.
At the last minute, I switched around the menu. Tonight, we attend Muffin’s first official meeting as a cub scout. So, I’m hoping that the plan still happens as planned.
So, here we go!
Saturday: Pizza Meatball Subs (Kraft Recipes), Welch’s strawberries from Aldi (Note: I decided not to cube the mozzarella into the meatballs, but I instead put sliced mozzarella directly on the bread. I couldn’t find any Sun-dried Tomato Vinaigrette, so I put some more chopped sun-dried tomatoes in the sauce mix with some Tuscan Italian salad dressing–Kroger brand.)
Sunday: Cabbage Patch Casserole (Deep South Dish): This is a meal-in-one-dish.
Monday: Slow Cooker Chicken Tortilla Soup (A Spicy Perspective)
Tuesday: Beef and Bean Burrito Skillet Dinner (Deep South Dish), chips and salsa
Wednesday: Pancakes, sausage, fruit
Thursday: hot dogs or leftovers
Saturday: Deep South Pinto Beans and Rice (Deep South Dish), cornbread
Sunday: Bacony Chicken and Rice Bake (Deep South Dish), green veg
What’s on your meal plan this week?
