Food Budget/Meal Planning Update

Food Budget Update:  Thus far, we’ve been under $50 each week for groceries…success!  We’re at $50 for takeout this month; we bought our friend Cory’s dinner last night, which put us at $20.  I’m not planning takeout for the next week because my tummy has been upset today…I’m gun-shy now;).

Meal Planning Update:  This week wasn’t so good for the meal planning stuff.  I picked a couple of items that weren’t wins and then had a night or two where I didn’t feel like what I’d planned.  I think that flexibility is a good thing, but I don’t want to be too much into doing that, so I tried to make this week a little more exciting:

Meal Plan, 1/25-1/31

  • Monday:  Tofu stir-fry (served over eith brown rice or rice noodles)
  • Tuesday:  Roasted Root veggies and brussels sprouts (carrots, onions, potatoes)
  • Wednesday:  Scrounge Night
  • Thursday:  Spiralized Zuchinni with Marinara sauce
  • Friday:  Brown Rice Veggie Burgers
  • Saturday:  Cream of Broccoli Soup
  • Sunday:  Linguine with garlic cream sauce

Tomorrow night, I’m making sweet potato gnocchi.  I forgot to buy spaghetti last week and I have a bag of sweet potatoes just begging to be made into gnocchi for the playoffs!!
