Tasty Tuesday Meal Plan 5/15/2012

Let me be honest here.  My family has been eating a ton of crap since moving back to Missouri.  I got out of the routine of making meal plans and preparing healthy food for us.  Now, I plan to get back into the routine!  Here’s the meal plans for this week:

  • Wednesday: Breakfast – Eggs; Lunch – Hebrew National hotdogs and fresh veggies; Dinner – Meatloaves and green beans.
  • Thursday:Breakfast – Smoothies; Lunch – Turkey salad with homemade honey mustard ; Dinner: Roasted chicken and broccoli.
  • Friday: Breakfast – Yogurt with fruit; Lunch – Chicken taco salad (use leftover chicken from Thursday night); Dinner – Chili
  • Saturday: Breakfast – Grain free waffles; Lunch – Chicken sausages and veggies; Dinner – leftovers
  • Sunday: Lot Family Day! We’ll be bringing hot wings this week.
  • Monday: Breakfast – Smoothies; Lunch – leftovers; Dinner – Chicken stir fry
  • Tuesday: Breakfast – Eggs; Lunch – Salad; Dinner – Chicken legs and whatever veggies are left. 🙂

I also have some baking I’d like to get done this week, which includes GF bread and oatmeal cookies. Check out Organized Junkie for more ideas.

Tasty Tuesday 4/17/12

Holy cannoli!!  I really thought that staying under $150.00 ($75.00) biweekly for real (mostly) organic groceries would be easy.  We ate really well on $100.00 a week when we lived in Indianapolis.  I mean honestly how could moving five hours west make the prices more expensive?  Boy was I wrong!  This is going to be more of a challenge than I had originally anticipated, but here we go!  Hopefully you all won’t have to see me crash and burn.

This week I spent $54.86 at Trader Joe’s, $40.71 for our co-op box, and $70.00 in other various areas (farm for meat, health food store, etc.).  That puts me a little over at $165.57.  Here are the dinner meals I plan to make from these items:

Tuesday – Spaghetti with Italian style chicken breast and salad (I didn’t make it last night.)

Wednesday – Fried Rice

Thursday – Bean and Collard Greens soup

Friday – I will be gone. Soups and leftovers for Scott.

Saturday – I will be gone. Soups and leftovers for Scott.

Sunday – Sliced beef steak, mashed potatoes and green beans

Monday – Crockpot chicken (whole chicken with seasonings), honey glazed carrots, and broccoli

If you see something and you want to know how I make it just ask.  I am always happy to share recipes.  While we’re speaking of sharing what did your menu for this week look like?  If you have a blog please feel free to link it up in the comments section.  Need more ideas for your menu planning?  Check out the links on Organized Junkie.
