• 2019 Week #2 $50 Weekly Menu Plan

    2019 Week #2 $50 Weekly Menu Plan:
    This week we purchased the following: Cauliflower, lettuce, green peppers, carrots, celery, bleu cheese, sour cream, cucumbers, tomatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, pineapple, fresh mushrooms, half & half, cream cheese, grapefruit, and bananas

    Although the prices of chicken are super cheap this week at just $1.49lb for boneless breast, the pork chops and chicken listed in this weeks menu were purchased in bulk and vacuum sealed this past fall when they were
    on sale during a meat-restocking week.

    From our Backyard: Fresh Eggs

    From our Windowsill: Fresh Cilantro, Fresh Scallions, Fresh Basil

    Total spent this week on groceries: $49.17

    Saturday, Jan 12th This is an all-day event with a huge group of friends in which we get together and enjoy a plethora of chili's ranging from mild to who needs a liver.

    Sunday, Jan 13th: Its game day here, the playoffs are in full swing, which means munchies rather than big meals.Tonight's menu item
    is from a homemade "meal kit" that we previously froze when shrimp was readily available. We make these kits using our
    Foodsaver vacuum sealer and simply write the directions on the sealed package with a sharpie.

    Game Day Pizza Dip

    Various Snacks:

    • French Onion Dip & Chips (or cut veggies)
    • Pudding Chocolate Chip Cookies
    • Veggie Sticks with Homemade Bleu Cheese Dip
    • Salads with various toppings - I premake several bowls at the beginning of the week and add small containers of nuts (walnut, pecan, cashew pieces, sunflower seeds), dried fruits (cranberries, bits of dried apple, raisins) to sprinkle on top just prior to serving. It's only about a tablespoon or two, but adds crunch and different
      flavors. We top these with homemade dressings.
    • Grapefruit
    • Bananas, possibly banana pudding

    Drinks included:
