Meal Plan Monday 2/16

Sharing with your friends!

Meal Plan Monday

This week I am keeping it simple.  Each week when I sit down to plan out the week’s meals, I try to do at least one or two recipes that are either new, or a little more in depth.  The problem with this?  I end up spending more money on those ingredients.  Instead, I’m just planning simple meals this week, and most with ingredients I already have. 

So what’s for dinner?

Monday–Chicken Fajitas (using peppers I froze a few weeks ago so they didn’t go bad–saving $$ by not buying fresh)

Tuesday–Noodles and Veggies in Peanut Sauce (already have the noodles and sauce, just needed veggies)

Wednesday–Salad (this is going to be a reoccurring theme each week)

Thursday–Crock Pot White Chicken Chilli

Friday–Spaghetti and Salad

Saturday–Hamburgers and Oven Fries 

Sunday–Broccoli and Cheddar Soup  (Easy to throw together and doesn’t take a lot of ingredients!)

Guess what?  I only spent $69.73 at the store this week!  Way less than what I have been spending (easily $120 average a week)  Simplicity is key!

What is your family eating this week?

[…] loved last week’s simple Meal Plan so much that I continued on the trend for this week!  My grocery budget was a little higher […]
