I do find that it's easier to keep my food bill relatively in check when I plan out our meals. It also helps to know what to defrost in the mornings or prepare ahead of time throughout the day.
So, today I spent about $80 at Price-Rite for breakfasts, lunches, snacks, and dinner components. I still need to buy my meat and dairy.
So, here's what we'll be having for dinners this week!
Monday April 1st
Beef Roast with carrots, parsnips, onions, sweet potatoes, and yukon golds
dessert: lemon velvet pie (I was supposed to make this for Easter, but we stayed home due to the stomach bug - again)
Tuesday April 2nd
Wednesday April 3rd
Four cheese ravioli in a light cream sauce with peas and ham
Thursday April 4th
Veggie Stir Fry with beef and jasmine rice
Friday April 5th
Pittsburgh Steak Salad
I'm also going to try this recipe for lunch today. Josh has a dentist appointment at 12:30, so I'm picking him up from school and I'll take this in a thermos for him to eat on the way to the office.
