Hello All! I hope you had a great weekend! I did and will do a recap tomorrow. FOr now, here is my weekly meal plan, plus some info about my grocery budget.
Since we have decided to buy a house, we have really buckled down on our monthly budget. Embarrassing to admit but before we started this house buying process, we had no monthly budget. We would just pay the bills and do what we wanted with the rest. We would of course save some but didn't have a goal. Now, we look at everything we spend. We have set a good grocery budget around $350 a month for 2 adults. I did my weekly grocery trip this morning and came out way below budget at $56 (& some change). I had hoped it would be under $70 so seeing this was exciting!! This trip also included some staple items that are a little more expensive and not bought as often. Looking at the sales while planning my weekly meal plan is paying off (finally)!!
This week we are having:
Sunday: Cream Cheese, Garlic, & Chive Stuffed Chicken
One word about this recipe...GROSS! We ate dinner really earlier tonight and I feel like a need to make something else. I will take some responsibility for it not being the best but the flavors really don't go together (IMO).
Monday- Bubble Up Enchiladas
I have made this before and it is amazing! If you are looking for a super easy, inexpensive, yummy meal, this is the one! You can find the recipe here.
Tuesday- Breakfast Tacos
I don't have a recipe or a picture for this meal. I use breakfast sausage or bacon, eggs, cheese, and tortillas. It is really good, easy, and cheap!
Wednesday- Grilled Tilapia
Now that my husband is back home, I am going to have him help with a meal outside before it gets to cold. I make foil packets inside and he grills them. In each foil packet is a tilapia filet, green peppers, onions, butter, and seasoning. Once it is cooked, we serve it over rice.
Thursday- Texan Ranch Chicken Casserole
I am not going to let one bad pinterest recipe stop me from trying another but I am a little nervous trying this one... You can find it here.
Friday- Sunday we will be in College Station. My sister is getting her Aggie ring this weekend but I will have an entire post on that!
What is on your menu this week?
