Weekly Meal Plan for 7/9/18

July 09, 2018

So, something amazing happened to me recently that never happens...I won a contest! A local organization Your Milk Shoppe was giving away a weekend in a cabin at a local lake and I won!! Our good friends, Chris and Louisa, from our small group are going to stay with our kids this weekend while Clarence and I get to go spend time together at the cabin. I am so excited!! And so thankful for our friends who our kids love! So our meals do not include whatever food Clarence and I need to take for the weekend. We will try to spend as little as possible though.

I'm shopping through Walmart Grocery Pickup this week because a friend of mine used my code for $10 off her order, which also gave me $10 off of mine. Here is that code in case anyone else wants to use it for their first order.

I'm still getting a handful of things from Aldi.

Here's what we've got going on:


Monday: Sloppy Joes, French Fries, Asparagus. Total for meal: $0
We had some leftover hamburger buns from our cookout we need to quickly use and Clarence's friend gave him a can of chili, so we're gonna make it a meal. We have french fries in the freezer and asparagus we didn't make for dinner Saturday that we'll also use.
Tuesday: Sausage Spinach Rice Bowl, Watermelon. Total for meal: $1.54
I'm going to split a pound of turkey breakfast sausage for this meal and a breakfast meal I'm doing this week (I'll post below). I'll add more spinach and more rice so it will feed all of us. I only had to buy sausage and spinach for this meal. We had everything else.
Doesn't this sound delicious? I'm going to throw some green beans in there too for a full meal. I'm also doubling this to take to a friend of mine who recently had a baby so that total is for both of us. I bought chicken drumsticks for .69 a pound at Aldi. It was only $3 for enough chicken to feed two families!
Thursday: Tex Mex Taco Pie, Mixed veggies. Total for meal: $7.51
Not the healthiest of meals or the cheapest, but I was trying to find a way to use the rest of the tortillas I bought for a breakfast meal and this sounded interesting. I couldn't find the jalepeno cream cheese, so I got regular.
Friday: Ravioli, Broccoli, Garlic Bread. Total for meal: $2.84
Clarence and I will leave before dinner, but we have ravioli I bought last week along with spaghetti sauce in the fridge. I bought some steamable broccoli and garlic bread to round out this easy meal.
Saturday Lunch: Frozen Pizzas and Salad. Total for meal: $6.06
Another easy meal. We didn't eat the pizza I bought last week because I forgot about a baby shower we were going to. They can eat it today and I bought one more and a salad.
Saturday Dinner: Chicken Zucchini Casserole over Rice. Total for meal: $8.50
This sounds really yummy and I'm sad I don't get any. I'll have to get an update on how it is and eat it again sometime soon when Clarence and I can eat it too. I just had to buy chicken, pesto, and zucchini. I had everything else. 
Sunday Lunch: Grilled Cheese, Veggies Straws, Fruit. Total for meal: $1.00 for bread
Another easy meal so our sweet friends don't hate us :) We might be back, but planned something easy just in case we're not. 
Sunday Dinner: Small Group Leaders Meeting (dinner provided)

Here are the few new breakfast meals we're trying in an effort to be better about eating breakfast daily!
