Menu Plan Monday

I am very excited to report that I bought all my groceries for this week's meals for $63.67 and that's for five meals.  That also includes snacks, beverages, and some extra stuff for Darcy.

So how on earth did I get 5 meals out of 64 bucks?  I stock up on meat when it's on sale, used coupons (only $2.25 worth this week), choose recipes with fewer ingredients than I used to, use up things left in my fridge from last week, and choose a couple recipes from the $10 Spot.  I also try to do at least one meat-free meal.  Let me know if you try any of these!

Sunday: Lemon Chicken with Sweet Pea Tortellini (ate this last night and it was outstanding- a perfect example of the non-processed food that Rachael Ray likes to make!).

Monday: Sweet Potato and Ham Fritters (I'm serving it on mixed greens)

Tuesday: Fiesta Pork with Cheesy Polenta

Wednesday: Leek-y Chicken with Cous-Cous (a recipe I have made before and I don't do that often!)

Thursday: Eggplant Roll Ups (I'm planning to do some roasted broccoli on the side.  This is a another rare repeat for me)

Friday: Takeout!

Saturday: Takeout!
