meal planning :: sunday-saturday #1

welcome to the first meal plan! i love looking at other blogger’s and vlogger’s meal plans and i always pick up good inspiration. i thrive more off of simplicity though, so most of our meals are pretty basic. every once in a while we’ll splurge and make something with a bunch of ingredients, but usually when we do that, our food budget goes out of whack!

we overspent on our food budget last month, so this month we are going to work hard to keep down, maybe even come under budget. wow, that would be awesome! meal planning takes the stress out of figuring out what to eat for dinner and we can all use a little of that. ┬ámy husband and i both work full time and we get home late, so getting food on the table is always a bit of a headache anyways. here’s what we plan to eat this week.

sunday :: ham, spinach, and potatoes

monday :: spaghetti & asparagus

tuesday :: chicken nuggets & carrots (mama’s late night)

wednesday :: macaroni & cheese & peas (mama’s late night)

thursday :: bean tacos

friday :: chicken, broccoli & rice

saturday :: loaded baked potatoes

(total grocery bill for march week #1: $54, still need chicken, popcorn, apples, raisins and peas)
