• 2012 $50 Weekly Menu Week #22

    2012 $50 Weekly Menu Week #22: This week is a Meat re-stocking week! If you follow the sales cycles you already know that Memorial weekend is an excellent time to find great deals on steaks, ribs, chops and chicken breast.
    We've saved a great deal of money from previous weeks budgets, coming in under $50 nearly every week. This week we stocked up on boneless skinless chicken breast, ribs, roasts and chops for a grand total of $113.

    In addition to the meat we picked up several fresh pineapples,
    mangoes, kiwi fruit and fixings for salads.

    Our own garden is producing cucumbers and fresh tomatoes! For those that are just joining our weekly menus, we do raise our own chickens (for fresh eggs) and get about a dozen per day- So if you're noticing a large number of eggs in our menu plans, that's why!
