This Week's Menu

After grocery shopping last week I had $87.77 left in the budget. My husband went out to lunch one day last week and spent $10 so my remaining grocery budget for the month is $77.77. My grocery budget for this week is $38.88.

I was able to make a meal plan out of foods that are already in my freezer and pantry so my plan is to not go grocery shopping this week although we may have to pick up milk because we have less than half a gallon right now. But hopefully at the most we will spent $3 this week on groceries!

Here is my menu plan using foods on hand:

Dinners:
Monday: Dinner with father-in-law who is in town!
Tuesday: Stir Fry (Chicken, Cabbage, Broccoli, Carrots)
Wednesday: Hamburger Gravy
Thursday: Grilled Steak with Potatoes & Salad
Friday: Grilled Barbeque Salad with Salad
Saturday: Steak Fajitas

Lunches:
Leftovers
Pizza Pockets
Cheese Quesadillas
Sunday lunch: Country Ham with Pintos & Cream Corn

Breakfast:
Cereal
Cream of Wheat
Scrambled Eggs & Ham
Fruit
Yogurt

Here is a link to my grocery shopping methods so you can understand how I can go a week without grocery shopping!

Oh my goodness, the hamburger gravy sounds delicious. The ultimate comfort food.

I think I will have to try your Hamburger gravy recipe. I did a freezer/pantry inventory and I have 29 packages of ground beef in my freezer! Need lots of ground beef recipes!
