What’s For Dinner…? Week 3

What' for Dinner

This was a challenging week to plan a menu and my grocery shopping list because I only had $13 left in my grocery budget. I would say I really don’t know where the money has gone – but I do.

#1 – Grocery prices are on the rise. I’ve really been struggling with our food budget the last few months.

#2 – I stocked up on some meat deals and scored a great deal on Red Baron pizzas (8 to be exact), which took a chunk of my grocery money. I just couldn’t pass up getting frozen pizzas for $1.72 each. These will be so great to have on hand during the busy holiday season.

#3 – I doubled up on some meals so that I could make a double batch and put one in the freezer. Hopefully this will help in November and December when I will be using those meals!!

Yes, tomorrow starts a new month and I could wait to go shopping with the new grocery budget. But let’s face it, since November has Thanksgiving and extra festivities, I’ll be spending more for that and I really don’t want to be scrambling at the end of the month again.

So challenge accepted! This week’s menu plan is based off of items I already have in my pantry, my refrigerator and my freezer. My grocery list has the bare minimum needed for this week – like milk, vegetables and a pound of beef.

Here is what’s for dinner in my home this week:

Thursday – Chili Mac with french bread and corn chips

FridayHomemade Pizza

Saturday – Leftovers

Sunday – Pork Taco’s with homemade guacamole salsa

Monday – Crock Pot Lemon Chicken (recipe from Life As a Lofthouse) with broccoli and rice

Tuesday – Spaghetti

Wednesday – Breakfast for Dinner
