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??

Planning:
  • 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
Menu:

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.
