I've shared my menu plans here before, but this week seems like a booming success of planning awesomeness, so I thought I'd let you know what we're eating up in here! I generally do the bulk of my grocery shopping at Publix. They have great Buy-1-Get-1-Free deals, almost always including things I really need, like apple juice or pasta. They also double coupons up to 50cents and have the best produce in town. Their meat prices, however are H I G H, so I do my meat shopping at our smaller "local" stores, the Piggly Wiggly and Lucky's Foodland. For less than $20 at the Pig, I bought a huge family pack of chicken breasts, a big pack of thick-cut pork chops and a 1.6 pound package of ground beef. Combined with the rest of the stuff we bought at Publix (which included some non-food items, like parchment paper and Drano, plus some "Stock-up" items like salad dressing and soy sauce), we spent less than $100 at the grocery store this week.
Here's our menu plan:
Sunday: Grilled teriyaki pork chops with rice and grilled asparagus.
Monday: Grilled chicken Caesar salads (We are seeing a pattern with the grilled-ness, yes?)
Tuesday: Pork fried rice (2 grilled (!) pork chops with veggies like bean sprouts, carrots, peas and leeks) **I did the math (!) and this meal cost us $2.02 per serving.
Wednesday: Grilled chicken breasts with baked potatoes and kale.
Thursday: Lasagna because MAN are we gonna be sick of pork and chicken! Also garlic bread. Possibly grilled.
Dean and I are heading to my mom and dad's for the weekend and Marcus has a crazy bunch of work commitments Friday through Sunday, so our grill will be neglected for a few days.
What are you eating this week?
