First, a question for you. Did you like it when I posted my grocery receipts, when I was doing the Food Stamp Challenge? Our current food budget is more than what it was on our food stamp challenge, mainly because of the kind of meat we are buying. We also are on WIC, so I get milk and cereal.
Was seeing our grocery list, our receipts, and then our menu plan helpful, or so boring you groaned when you saw it and clicked “Mark as Read” without even scrolling? I’ll put an estimated meal cost next to each menu plan.
Our current food budget is $150 a week for 10 people, or about $2.15 per person per day. What’s yours?
Sunday: Emergency Pantry Pasta Salad watch for the recipe later this week! ($4)
Monday: Meatloaf (w/grassfed bison, cuz that’s what was on sale), mashed potatoes, artichokes ($22)
Tuesday: Roasted chicken, brussels sprouts, red and brown rice pilaf ($18) dang, those hormone/antibiotic free/vegetarian chickens are expensive!
Wednesday: Blackeyed peas with kale (recipe on my sidebar), cornbread. ($5)
Thursday: Cuban pork chops with black beans and rice, green beans ($12)
Friday: Leftovers or breakfast – sausage, gravy, biscuits, eggs, cut up oranges ($0 or $6)
Saturday: Thai chicken with stir fried vegetables, rice noodles ($12)
How do we fit in Atkins? Basically, husband just skips the side dishes. He’s lost 4″ since January!
