Well after last week's success with my menu plan I am doing it again. Eating out of the freezer, fridge and pantry and trying to save a little money.
Here is our menu for the week.
Sunday: Chicken sandwiches and coleslaw, we ate out at lunch time
Monday: Burgers, ceaser salad and bbq potatoes
Tuesday: Chicken wraps & garden salad OR chicken with rice, corn and onions
Wednesday: Homemade macaroni and cheese, and garlic bread
Thursday: Chicken pies, fries and baked beans
Friday: Pizza and garden salad
Saturday: Burgers and garden salad
Its a bit heavy on chicken this week, but on Saturday night I popped a whole chicken in the crockpot with a little water and seasoning and cooked it on low overnight. Its the best way to cook chicken in my mind and is so moist done this way. The chicken will feed us for at least a couple of days, plus some lunches.
I have also closed out the month of June for the grocery challenge. I am pleased to say I am under budget. Which was no doubt helped by the fact that we ate out of the fridge and freezer this last week. For the month of July I have set a budget of $300 for groceries, and hope to have $200 in savings.
