Weekly Meal Breakdown #9


I already know that this week is not going to be a cheap week meal-wise because I'm making Maryland crab soup. Crab meat is typically pretty expensive unless you can get it on sale. Unfortunately, no crab meat was on sale at any of our 3 local grocery stores that I thought was decent enough to put in soup. I'll typically use claw meat for soup but not one store had any in stock. So my options were imitation or lump. Maryland natives will not use imitation so my only choice was a $20 pound of lump crab meat. It does make me feel a bit better to know that this makes so much soup that it can definitely be more than one dinner.

Anyway, onto the meals for the week.
