Weekly Menu Breakdown #21

/

I haven't went to the grocery store yet, but I'm really excited to blog this menu. On Sunday, after we go to the store, I'll update it with the prices of everything.

Earlier this week the thought popped into my head that it would be really neat and different to have a different cuisine each night. It's not perfect, since I have two pretty picky eaters in the house, but at least the main ingredient represents a different cuisine.

1 onion - $0.14
1 1/2 cups sauerkraut - $1.29
5 potatoes - $0.80
8 oz. sour cream - $0.99
Total: $3.22

3 chicken breasts - $2.77
Swiss cheese $2.69
Ham - $2.89
1 can cream of mushroom soup - $0.79
1/3 bag french fries - $0.75

There isn't a dinner planned for Friday night because we're going to visit my aunt at the beach. I can't believe that summer is almost over (and the wedding is almost here!) and I'm ridiculously pale. I usually have some semblance of a tan by the end of June but we've been so busy with wedding stuff and since our pool is surrounded by bees and wasps, I look kind of see-through. It's not good!
