Menu Plan, November 30
I’m trying lots of new recipes this week, using leftover turkey and other meat from the freezer. I’m also incorporating a meatless meal this week…we’ll see how that one goes over with The Picky Apple. We’re trying to bring down our grocery bill and actually stick to a grocery budget for a change. (What a concept!) I always hesitate to discuss numbers for grocery bills because I know everyone has a different idea about how much they should be spending, and I know many could feed a family of 4 or even 6 on what our “goal” is. Our goal (okay, okay, it is $150 a week) is a great starting point that seems absolutely doable for 2 adults and a 2 year old who doesn’t eat much! This would be a definite improvement over what we’ve been spending.
Tuesday: Cheesy Rice Fritters with Spinach (new recipe)
Wednesday: Southwestern Turkey Soup (new recipe), Cornbread
Thursday: Coconut Chicken (new recipe), Basmati Rice, Acorn Squash
Friday: Chili Rice (new recipe), homemade tortillas (new recipe)
Saturday: Dine Out or leftovers
Sunday: Honey Chipotle Glazed Ribs (new recipe), Baked Potatoes, Sauteed Greens (new recipe)
Baking: Planning to get started baking cookies for my Christmas Cookie Boxes….as soon as I figure out which recipes I’m using!
