Weekly Meal Breakdown #6


I finally feel like I'm back in the swing of things with cooking and planning meals so I figured it was time for one of these again. I still can't find everything in the kitchen and I still stand around wondering which counter to use, but that is another story.

3 chicken breasts $1.55
mushrooms $1.00
1/2 package fettuccine noodles $.50
canned green beans $1 
Total Cost: $4.05

I usually don't add this in, but since dinners are so cheap this week (Redner's had a gigantic sale on meats):

Dessert - Apple Crisp 
10 apples $5
1/4 cup old fashioned oats $0.25
8 oz. chopped walnuts $5
Total Cost: $10.25

And the total cost for meals and dessert this week is.... $43.66.

Since I'm making some new things this week I'm going to try to blog dinner as much as possible. I definitely want to do the pot roast, pretzel chicken and chicken marsala but we'll just have to see how that goes.  

I know the meats seem ridiculously cheap, but Redner's is running 5 for $20 meats all month. The pot roast that I need is $2.50 per pound and is buy one get one free. The chicken breasts have been gigantic and I managed to get 9 meals from 14 chicken breasts (that's insanity!). The ground beef and pork chops were part of the 5 for $20 deal as well. Apples are typically more expensive around this time of year but they are doing 10 lbs. of apples for $10.
Now that I'm all kinds of hungry after making this post and really wanting to cook it all now, I'm going to find something to eat. =)
