Weekly Meal Breakdown #5


I guess I couldn't make it to a 5 week record. Sorry about that! We haven't made it to the store yet, so I'm basing these prices off what the circular says. It should be pretty accurate.

We are on operation clean-out-the-freezer-and-pantry since we are moving at the end of this month. I'm really not interested in lugging frozen meats and half open boxes of stuff to the new apartment so we're trying to get rid of as much stuff as possible. Being snowed in for the past week has definitely helped that plan out a lot!

Sunday - Beef Stew
beef cubes $2.39
4 carrots $0.56
4 potatoes $0.66
canned corn $1
1 onion $0.14
beef stock $1.39
Total: $6.14
This should make enough that we can have leftovers next week.

Monday - Shrimp Bisque
1/2 bag of shrimp $6
red pepper $1.29
half and half $1.10
onion $0.14
tomato sauce $1
Total: $9.53

Tuesday - Pineapple Pork Chops w/ Cheesy Risotto and beans
pork chops $5
1/2 can chunk pinapple $0.50
1 cup Arborio rice $0.35
1/4 onion $0.04
chicken stock $1.39
mozzarella cheese $0.22
canned beans $1.29
Total: $8.79

Wednesday - Apple Cider Chicken with Rice and Apple Bacon Green Beans
3 chicken breasts $6
1/4 cup apple juice $0.10
2 granny smith apples $0.48
boil-in-a-bag brown rice $0.67
1 slice bacon $0.12
green beans $1.79
Total: $9.16

Thursday - Lasagna w/ Garlic Bread 
6 Lasagna noodles $1
1 lb. ground beef $2.69
1 lb. beef cubes $2.19
2 cups cottage cheese $2.29
can of tomato sauce $1.29
can of tomato paste $0.79
6 slices bread $0.12
Total: $10.37
This one is a bit more expensive than usual because Tom suggested I include beef cubes and ground beef to make it more like my dads lasagna. But, it will provide at least 3 meals of leftovers.

Friday - Monterey Chicken with French Fries and Corn
3 chicken breasts $6
1/4 cup taco cheese $0.28
1/2 bag french fries $1.75
canned corn $1
Total: $9.03

And the total for the week comes to.....$53.02. Not bad at all!
