Weekly Meal Plan for 5/7/18

May 08, 2018

Oh man, Aldi really got me with some impulse buys this week! But I don't feel too bad since I was under budget the last two weeks :) It'll all even out in the end!

Here is what we have going on for our meals!


Monday: Rotisserie chicken, frozen potato/green beans packets. Total for this meal: $0

I bought these items last week, so it made for a cheap and easy dinner! I cooked the whole chicken in the crockpot (I think it cost $3.30 or so on sale last week) and will use some of the leftover meat for two other meals this week.

Tuesday: Hot Dogs, Mac & Cheese, Frozen veggies. Total for this meal: $0

Another night of "shopping" from what we have. I had half a bag of frozen veggies from when I did fried rice last week so we'll finish that off. Clarence has a meeting, so it's just me and the kids. God bless them for not saying a word when we do something easy like this when daddy is not home. 

Wednesday: Oven Roasted Sausage and Vegetables, strawberries and bananas. Total for this meal: $5.14

I've shared this recipe before and we eat it pretty often. It's so easy and delicious! We already had potatoes and onions. My parents are passing through town that night so they'll be joining us. Since my mom has some dietary restrictions, I'm going to make a separate pan for her with a couple sweet potatoes I have leftover instead of regular potatoes. I'll still do the veggies and she'll bring her own "approved" sausage. 

Thursday: Chicken Alfredo with Broccoli. Total for this meal: $3.04

I have a church events team meeting this night, so Clarence is going to just cook some noodles we already have, toss in some leftover rotisserie chicken and jarred alfredo sauce. I also bought some broccoli he can boil and add as well. 

Friday: Mini Mexican Pizzas and salad. Total for this meal: $6.33

I did also buy some sour cream and croutons, but didn't include them on the total since we'll just use a little. Instead of refried beans, we're going to add black beans. I already had salsa, taco seasoning, and cheese.

Saturday Lunch: Leftovers from dinner last night

Saturday Dinner: Crescent Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, Zucchini. Total for this meal: $2.30

I'm using the rest of the rotisserie chicken for this meal as well as mashed potatoes I already have and the last two zucchini I bought this week. This will not win any awards a for healthy meal, but it works to fill tummies!

Sunday Lunch: Clarence booked us for a Mother's Day Brunch and the food looks AMAZING! I'm so excited!

Sunday Dinner: Small group. I'm making Stuffed Cabbage Casserole. Total for this meal: $4.74

I already had leftover cabbage, onion, rice, and cheese. 

Total at the store this week: $58.37

I know my meals seem cheap and my total at the store doesn't reflect that ­čśéThat's what happens to your total when you impulse buy! 

Also bought: Chicken nuggets, two boxes of organic frozen fruit and veggie bars, popcorn bites, grits, aluminum foil, puffs, two kefirs, milk, avocado, two bags of yogurt raisins (they used to carry these and then stopped. My kids love them so when I saw them, I had to grab a couple!)

I've successfully fed my family for another week! Success!
