Weekly Meal Plan for 7/23/18

July 23, 2018

We had a great time with family this weekend! I'm one of 5 kids, so when we're all together with our kids, it is loud and crazy and I love every minute :) Can you tell which of the five of us are siblings??


Now that we're back, I guess I have to make sure we have food to eat. Dang it. Here's our meal plan for this week.


Monday: One Pot Beef & Broccoli. Total for meal: $5.88
I have a frozen bag of riced cauliflower I'm going to use for this dish. I'm also splitting the broccoli with Thursday's meal. We subbed ground turkey for beef. This is the first time we've made this meal so we'll see how it is...
Tuesday: Chicken Spinach Bake with Garlic Biscuits. Total for meal: $3.80
I'll use some chicken leftover from last week to bring down the cost of this meal.
3 chicken breasts cooked and cut into pieces
8 oz penne pasta
8 oz chive and onion cream cheese
Frozen spinach (as much as you would like, thawed and drained well)
15 oz can of Italian Style tomatoes (basil, oregano, and garlic, I believe)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350. Cook noodles and chicken. Mix together, pasta, chicken, spinach, cream cheese, tomatoes, salt, and pepper. Top with cheese and bake for about 30 minutes.
Wednesday: Ham and Bean Soup. Total for meal: $4.32

Thursday: Broccoli, Onion, and Goat Cheese Quiche with Fruit. Total for meal: $4.00
I'm going to need to buy a pie crust because Aldi doesn't carry it except for during holiday season. I got this recipe from my friend Louisa and put it below. She actually sent me a recipe for the crust, but I'm lazy so I'm just going to buy one ;)
1 onion, cut into half rings
Olive oil
5 eggs
About 1/3 of a carton of whipping cream
S and P
About half a head of broccoli cut into small florets
1 4oz/125g package goat cheese 
 To make the filling:
1. Place the oil in a pan and heat gently, add the onions and cook gently until they are browned. This may take about 30 minutes. Set aside to cool
2. In a bowl mix the eggs, cream, S and P
 
To assemble to quiche:
1. Preheat the oven to 400F
2. Roll out the pastry in a 8" quiche pan, taking care to fit all the corners
3. Place the caramelized onions in the bottom, then place the broccoli pieces evenly around, and in between dot large knobs of goat cheese
4. Carefully pour over the egg mixture and sprinkle the top with cheese (if wanted)
5. Bake for about 25-30 minutes until slightly browned and puffy
Friday: Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole and Zucchini. Total for meal: $4.36
Using the last of the chicken from last week to cut down on cost. 
Saturday Lunch: Leftovers
Haven and I are going to a friend's baby shower today, so we'll leave the boys home to eat leftovers for lunch :)
Saturday Dinner: Garlic Herb Pork Chops, Wild Rice, Edamame. Total for meal: $5.61
Just bought the pork chops and pack of wild rice. I already had edamame in the freezer. 
Sunday Lunch: Leftovers

Sunday Dinner: Out

Total at the store this week: $50.50

Also bought: Fruit pouches, 6 yogurts, Kefir, eggs, strawberries, peaches, juice bowls, raisins, mac and cheese, bananas, bread.
