Weekly Meal Breakdown #7

I never ended up making last Friday nights dinner; the chicken marsala. I think I might add it into this week. The parmesan potato gratin didn't turn out too well either, but I think thats just because the recipe called for the wrong measurements. So I'll try it again next week and see what happens.

There are only 5 meals this week because I thought the chicken marsala would have been for Sunday.

Monday - Turkey Reubens
1/4 lb. turkey breast $0.98
6 slices rye bread $1.13
1/4 bottle Thousand Island Dressing $0.37
(I realized today that I forgot to pick up Swiss cheese to make this, so I just used what I had in the fridge, American.)
3 slices American Cheese $0.37
Total: $2.85 (It doesn't get much cheaper than that!)

Tuesday - Steak with Baked Potato and Broccoli and Cheese
3 filet mignon steaks $6
3 potatoes $0.48
1 1/2 heads broccoli $1.66
1/4 medium brick of Velveeta cheese $0.80
Total: $8.94

Wednesday - Garlic Lemon Doubled Stuffed Chicken breast with Lemon Cup Risotto and Corn
Ever since I found the Giada recipe for risotto in a lemon cup, I've wanted to try it. Finally, I get to try it out.
3 chicken breasts $4.00
1/4 8 oz. cream cheese brick $0.45
3 lemons $1.47
Arborio rice $0.39
1/2 bag frozen corn kernels $0.50
2 tbs. mascarpone cheese $0.45
Total: $7.26

Thursday - Asian Noodles w/ Beef
red pepper $1.29
green pepper $1.40
skirt steak $3.99
1/2 box capellini noodles $0.50
1 package mushrooms $1.29
Total: $8.47

Friday - Cumin and Lime rubbed Pork Chops with Baked Potato and spiced corn
3 pork chops $2.50 (Buy 1 get 1 free family packs!)
red pepper $1.29
3 potatoes $0.48
1/2 package frozen corn kernels $0.50
light cream $1.33
Total: $6.10

The total cost for the week is.....$33.62. I think that might just be a new record. My goal for this week is to blog Wednesday, Thursday and Friday's meal.

Oh, and a sneak peek for next week: I want to try lentil soup and tomato, corn and basil risotto. Wish me luck!

Today I signed up for Foodie Blogroll. Sometime in the next two weeks they will contact me to confirm my account. I meet all of the requirements so I'm just impatiently waiting. I get to add a widget on my blog to show that I'm part of the Foodie Blogroll and I might even have random people find my blog then. I'm excited!
