Weekly Meal Plan for 4/30/18

April 30, 2018

This is another short week for us. We are headed to Virginia for a friend's wedding this weekend, so mama is happy to not have to plan a whole week of meals :) Our meals are super pork-heavy, but we love pig! Here's what we've got going on:

Monday: Bacon Carbonara, peas, garlic bread. Total for this meal: $2.91

I had parm cheese, eggs, heavy whipping cream, and garlic bread already. I'm splitting the package of bacon with another meal this week. 

Clarence makes this and doesn't follow an exact recipe, but this is generally what he does:

Cook half a pound of bacon. Drain some grease, then fry garlic in the rest of bacon grease. Add in 2 cups heavy cream and bring to simmer. Add in salt and some parmesan to taste. Add back the bacon and noodles and mix. Take off heat and crack an egg into it and mix
This is one of my favorite dishes!

Tuesday: Chicken Tacos and salad. Total for this meal: $2.38

I'm using some chicken I had leftover from last week that I will put in the crock pot with some taco seasoning and salsa (both of which I have already). Once cooked, we'll put it in some taco shells (also have already) with some shredded cheese, avocado, and sour cream. I did buy the cheese, but we'll use so little I'm not counting it in the total.

Wednesday: Fried Cabbage with Potatoes and Bacon, Fruit. Total for this meal: $4.13

If you've got picky eaters in your house and want to get them to eat some cabbage, this is a good recipe for it! It's got starchy potatoes and fatty bacon, so it may negate some of the goodness of the cabbage, but it's delish, so oh well! I'll only use half of the bag of potatoes (if that), so will save some for next week.

Thursday: Pork chops with frozen veggies. Total for this meal: $4.36

I had the veggies in the freezer already from last week, so all I had to pay for was the pork.

Total at the store this week: $30.17

Also bought kefir, bananas, fruit bowls, bread, cheese, apple juice, two chicken stuffed with broccoli and cheese for us to eat with our lunch today (we have leftover rice and fruit too), and a whole chicken. The chicken was on sale for .59 a pound this week which made it $3.32 for the whole thing. I'll put it in the crock pot next week and make a couple meals out of it.
