• Week #16 $50 Weekly Menu for 4-6 ppl

    Week 16 Grocery Notes: Luckily the past few weeks we've managed to accumulate a decent store of frozen veggies, a few frozen fruits (for fast parfaits and smoothies) and a few pantry essentials. Since we're doing well budget wise, I thought it best to add a few odds and ends to the pantry- various flavors of vinegars, which are an excellent base for marinades. I picked up a couple gallons of milk (for making more yogurt!), lettuce (on sale for .75 a head!), tomatoes, peppers, cukes, a ham ($1.29lb)
    for Easter dinner & premeditated leftovers as our teen son prefers to call them.
