For my meals I had they are pretty simple and maybe even boring lol but I thought of these really quickly, here they are I did this for 5 days for Monday to Friday:
I had pork chops, 2 packs of lean hamburger and 1 pack of ribs, so I built my menu from that.
Meal # 1 - Pork chops, perogies and 2 types of veggies
Meal # 2 - Ribs (with a homemade dry rub), mashed potatoes and 2 types of veggies
Meal # 3 - Spaggetti (with half whole wheat and half white) also a homemade chefs salad with (romaine, cherry tomatoes, celery, carrots and marble cheese and only a enough ranch sauce for taste mixed into the whole salad) and homemade garlic bread (well the spread not the bread lol)
Meal # 4 - Hamburger helper, 2 types of veggies and whole wheat rice
Meal # 5 - (for friday) Hotdogs with fries that are low in salt
I have offically done my first weeks meal planning and even my whole families lunchs for the week.
First I looked at everything I had and seen what I could use for meals for the week and wrote down my meal plan (as I threw out everything that I didn't need from my cupboards and fridge) and then I wrote out my list of what I needed to complete those meals or add on to them. Did my grocery shopping and I spend 175.00 dollars LESS than what I usually spend in a week :) bonus! Supper for whole week is planned.
And I have lunches for myself, 3 kids and my husband for the whole week ready except for the sandwich or whatever the main lunch item will be too.
It was a very productive day! Thats it for today and can't wait for tomorrow.
