Weekly Meal Plan for 4/23/18

April 24, 2018

This is gonna be short and sweet folks. Sorry for the delay, but busy week, MOPS Monday, blah blah blah. We finally got to the store today...in the rain...but we did it! We will actually be out of town this weekend, so the meal plan is short, but here it is...


Monday: We ate out bc we had no food and I hadn't been to the store. Real life.

Tuesday: Baked Ravioli, broccoli, garlic bread. Total for meal: $5.67

I got this recipe from the Instagram stories of a mom in Georgia I randomly follow. She's a mom of 5, so she knows what it means to put together easy meals and this one definitely is! We had pasta sauce and cheese in the fridge, so I didn't have to buy those.
1 bag frozen ravioli
1 jar tomato sauce,
1 bag shredded cheese
optional: ground beef, sausage, ricotta, spinach, Italian herbs, mushrooms, etc (whatever you might want to add)
Preheat oven to 350. Spray 13x9 dish and spread thin layer of sauce on bottom. Arrange one layer of frozen ravioli, top with thin layer of sauce and layer of cheese. Layer ravioli, sauce and cheese until all is in dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 45 min. Remove foil and bake an additional 10 minutes uncovered.
Wednesday: Mini Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, zucchini. Total for meal: $6.26

I don't normally use my entire pound of meat for one dish, or at least not have it be the star, but since this is a short week and I knew we wouldn't spend the $50, I splurged a bit :) This meal also comes courtesy of the Instagram mom from Tuesday's meal. I should really send her a thank you note!
1 pound ground beef
1 egg
1/2 cup breadcrumbs (I'm going to use rolled oats bc I like my meatloaf with oats)
2 1/2 tablespoons of worcestershire
Brown sugar
Ketchup 
Preheat over to 350. Mix ingredients and make into 6 large balls. Spray muffin tin with nonstick spray. Put each mini meatloaf in and sprinkle with brown sugar and ketchup. Bake for 30 min or until done in the middle and browned on the edges.
Thursday: Chicken Fried Rice. Total for meal $1.50

I already had chicken, rice, onions, and soy sauce. I've shared this recipe before. It's easy and good. I'll just saute the chicken instead of doing the way it's done in this recipe (though we have done it this way and it's delish!) Clarence is going on a men's hike starting Thursday morning and coming back Sunday afternoon. So we are making dinner easy and then heading to Georgia on Friday to spend the rest of the weekend with my brother and his family.

Total spent at the store: $39.64

Also bought: two bags of frozen veggies to use in future meal, apple juice, cheesy potatoes, fruit pouches (3 boxes), garlic, mac and cheese, kefir (2), juice smoothie, oats, strawberries

What's on your meal plan this week??
