meal plan tuesday

just got back from the store.  i did really good this week. $64.71! which is great because i didn’t do so well last week. my total last week was .22 over budget and i had to dig a quarter out of my purse.  this also didn’t include our easter dinner, which my parents provided most of, but i still had to get some things for dessert. so on sunday i had to borrow $20 from this week’s grocery money for that.  at any rate, i knew in my planning that i was going to need a cheap week so i planned a couple meals out of the freezer, and another casserole that can use some leftover chicken from last week.

so here goes:

  • tuesday: beef stew; sourdough
  • wednesday: hash brown casserole
  • thursday: white chicken chili; sourdough
  • friday: pizza; green beans
  • saturday: hamburgers; carrot sticks; chips
  • sunday: breakfast burritos; hash browns
  • monday: leftovers

i have to make a costco run this week too, but not for many food items, mostly diapers, wipes and pull-ups, and whatever else on the list i can afford after that.  gotta love this budgeting stuff!
