Jan. 31- Feb. 6 Grocery Trips and Menu Plan Monday

Each week I will post what I spend at the grocery store each week so that I will be accountable to you lovely readers as well as to myself and so that I can see how I am doing. I hope to spend on average $60 a week on groceries. I will also be posting my menu plan on Mondays as well (as part of Orgjunkie's Menu Plan Monday series).

TOTAL: $87.16....to make my average of $60 a week, I will have $32.84 for next week. That should be doable, as a lot of this week was stocking up on snacks for the kids (all the goldfish) after the January pantry challenge.

Now on to our menu....


Last week's menu was a great success. We stuck to it! The only difference was we switched Friday and Thursday's menu for each other..because life happens! :) 

This week we will be eating:

MONDAY:  Chicken teriyaki and rice, peas, chicken nuggets for kids
TUESDAY: hot dogs and macaroni and cheese
WEDNESDAY: bbq chicken in the crockpot (used for sandwiches), pasta salad, baked beans
THURSDAY:  lasagna soup, grilled cheese, carrots
FRIDAY:  leftovers and/or pizza

SATURDAY:  sausage and potato casserole (NEW RECIPE), green beans, biscuits
SUNDAY:   Super Bowl food! (wings, chips and queso, etc.)

Hope everyone has a great week of good food!!
