Weekly Meal Plan for 4/2/18

April 02, 2018

In case you think I have some superhuman love for meal planning...I honestly HATE it. It is the bane of my existence. Especially since we're on a budget. But, alas, these tiny humans (and husband) need to be fed, so it's a necessary evil. I had a particularly strong hate for it this week, so don't expect too much. If you're still willing to forge ahead...here is our meal plan this week 😄

Monday: Kielbasa, potatoes, and onion with roasted brussel sprouts. Total for meal $3.84
The recipe linked is mostly what I do. I usually leave my potatoes in larger slices, brown in the pan, and then simmer with a top on until they cook, stirring occasionally. This is a meal my mom made growing up and is one of my favorites!
Tuesday: Beef and Noodle Casserole, green beans. Total for meal $3.10
I had sour cream, cottage cheese, tomato sauce and cheddar cheese in the fridge already.
Wednesday: Smoky Lentil and Potato Soup. Total for meal $4.49

Thursday: One-Pan Chicken Broccoli and Rice. Total for meal $4.29

Friday: Meatball Subs with Fries and Strawberries. Total for meal $3.00ish

Saturday Lunch: Skillet Meal in a Bag. Total for meal $3.29
As you can see, I always lose steam on planning once the weekend rolls around 😂
Saturday Dinner: Easy Baked Pesto Chicken with Pasta and Peas. Total for meal $6.58

Sunday Lunch: Leftovers from last night's dinner.

Sunday Dinner: Small Group. It's our week to prepare something and I have no idea what we will do, but I'll figure it out later. #dontknowdontcare

Total at the store: $58.19

I had to buy quite a few cabinet staples, so it's higher this week.

Also bought: Bread, mac and cheese, 4 hand soaps, apple juice, fruit snacks, 2 stuffed chicken breasts for lunch today to go with our leftover pasta and broccoli, sponges, yogurts, butter, fruit pouches, jelly, peanut butter, parmesan cheese, kefir, ketchup.
