February Shopping and Meal Plan

It’s that time again for our monthly grocery trip and meal plan!  I have found that going monthly for the bulk of our groceries works really well for our family.  I may have to do a small grocery run in a few weeks for produce and a couple gallons of milk or if we get a hankering for a meal I didn’t prepare for.  🙂   Below you’ll find our meal options and then the list of groceries that I bought.  I hope it helps some of you out in your meal planning!


For breakfasts: scrambled or fried eggs (2 meals worth), breakfast sandwiches (we made 24 of these with egg, bacon or ham, cheese, and English muffins or croissants), oatmeal (4 meals worth), cereal (2 meals worth), fruit and yogurt, or muffins.

For lunches: leftovers from dinner, pb&j, quesadillas, cut up veggies, salads or smoothies.

Dinners: chicken lombardi, chicken tacos, chicken broccoli bake, pasta dish 2x, beef tacos, pizza 2x, chili 4x, chicken marsala, meat loaf, baked potato bar, cowboy grub, hot wings, steak and potatoes, bbq rubbed ribs, burgers, general tso chicken, and chicken pot pie.  For sides we’ll go with veggies and rice or potatoes.  I also bought the stuff to make zucchini bread and chocolate chip cookies for desserts.  Scott makes the best chocolate chip cookies and now that I’ve completed my 30 day sugar free challenge I’m going to eat one or two.  😉

Leave me a comment about what’s in your meal plan this month!
