I grocery shop every other Friday & today is the day. I like to start out by composing a menu (keeping in mind what I might have on hand). Next I head to the kitchen to make my list. I look through what I have for each meal & what I will need. I have found this really helps to keep our grocery bill down. I thought I would give you a peak at my menu for 2 weeks. I know I can always use some supper ideas!!
Ham Potatoes and Green Beans
(I just cube up some ham & potatoes & cook it on the stove with the green bean juice, water, salt, pepper and some onions.)
(Since I will have plenty of ham. For this I will just throw together potatoes, cheese, maybe some milk or cream soup. Not really sure yet.)
Grilled Chicken Breasts
( I use this recipe and just increase it a bit so we have leftovers)
That is 10 meals. We usually eat out 1 time during that 2 week time period ( at least) for one supper meal & have leftovers as well, so I find that planning 10 meals is usually sufficient for us. I have a pretty strict grocery budget of $220 for my 2 weeks for our family of 4.
