$25 Meal Plan – Sept 18/17

Last week I started a new weekly feature called "What Can I Buy For $25 Today?". To say it was a hit would be an understatement. People have been emailing me all week with questions and asking for recipes. 

This weekly feature will have at least one meal plan for 4 to 5 supper meals that will feed a family of 4. Some weeks I will show 2 meal plans, but I may not be able to do that every week based on flyer sales. 

Most of the items purchased will be flyer or in store sales, and I will try to incorporate coupons, cash back and points offers when I can. 

Be sure to let me know if you are enjoying this weekly feature by commenting on the blog below. Your feedback is the best way to let me know I should keep doing something! 

Here is this week's menu, I was able to make 2 menus with a few variations. Recipes will be linked as I make them. Keep an eye on the blog, or subscribe to my newsletter so you don't miss them!

PLEASE NOTE: This is NOT an entire grocery order, and we do eat much more in the way of protein and veggies throughout the day/week. This feature is simple to show you what can be done with $25 and trying to keep it to real food, from scratch cooking.
