Our Weekly Meal Plan – March 6th- Easy this week, I cheated a little
This past week was a little hectic and I was just plain feeling lazy yesterday, so I cheated. Picking up 2 rotisserie chicken made meal prep and planning a little easier this week. Honestly, it didn’t even cost me more than I would normally spend on meals, so, why not??
- Go through flyers for best prices. Also check online for specials at local butchers, farmer’s markets, bakeries and shops.
- Check freezer, fridge, pantry and make as many meals as possible with these items and items on sale this week.
- Make menu and shopping list.
Here’s what I purchased yesterday:
- 2x Rotisserie Chicken $15 for 2
- 10 Avocados $6
- 2 large bags spinach $3.97 each
- 1kg individually frozen fish $9 (will be some for future week’s meals)
- large bag green Seedless Grapes $2 (clearance and only 1 grape to throw out!! These would have cost easily $6-7 normally)
- Bananas $1.34
- 1lb extra lean ground beef $3.75
- Hamburger buns $1.79
- Sweet Potatoes $2.64
- Zucchini $2 (bag of 6 in clearance section)
- 2x Dozen Eggs $1.77 each
I usually use this format to plan. Not assigning a day to the meal, but rather having everything prepped to make whichever I feel like doing that day. Here is my plan for this week. Recipes will be added as well, as I get them photographed and posted.
