Grocery Thursday Part IV...

...this will be the last of this part until we start a different cycle of meals. I hope I gave you guys some new ideas.

Monday-Chicken w/ Seasoned Salt & Green beans
Tuesday-Bacon & yogurt Baked potato
Wednesday-Chili with deer burger
Thursday-Turkey/Beef Burgers & Tater Tots
Friday-Pork Chops w/ bbq sauce Mashed Cauli
Saturday-Shepard's Pie
Sunday-Fish & Corn

Grocery bill this week $47.11 at Wal-Mart! I'm pretty pleased. My goal is to try to spend about $50/week on groceries. There's only two of us and that would include our breakfast, lunches and dinners so $25/person or $3.60/day...that seems reasonable, right?

Let's see, well, we didn't eat at home on Sunday because my dad and Sally took me to Blue Owl
for my birthday. Thank goodness-no more fish!!! I think I may have to eliminate that from the meal plan because I just can't seem to cook it right-AT ALL!!!

This week our schedule was all weird but we didn't eat out (except for with my dad). Instead, we made a double batch of chili so that we had it for two nights in a row since I wasn't able to cook one night. LOVED the mashed cauliflower. I followed the Kraft recipe which is just boil cauliflower, mash and add 1/4 cup ranch. They say for 1/2 cup, it's only 50 calories. I thought it was pretty good (as did Matt would gobbled it all down), perhaps a little too ranchy for me so we'll cut back on it next time.

This is the last post about my groceries and meal plans. I hope it gave you some ideas and maybe even helped your budget some!

P.S.-Three days until my birthday!

I'm glad to hear about the mashed cauliflower! Justin actually mentioned the other day that he'd like to try mashed cauliflower, and since he's a total Ranch lover, that recipe is probably a good intro for him!

Great menu. I am very interested in hearing more about these baked potatoes.....

Nice variety with the menu and under $50 is something you should be proud.
