I've missed posting several weeks here. But I have still had a plan. If I could just seem to organize my time, like I have organized our meals. . . LOL!
I'm just realizing that I use one or both of my crockpots almost daily. My little crocks are one of my biggest time savers. I start dinner in the morning before homeschooling. At lunch, I work on dinner some more, and at 3 pm, when homeschooling is complete, dinner is about ready for the table at 5pm.
Sunday: Hot dogs, homemade french fries, leftover lima beans, cabbage, and salad. Approx. cost $5.00 (The cost is so high because two of us require GF hot dogs at a cost of $5.29 a pack)
*Note to self: Soak beans in crockpot
Monday: tacos with homemade refried beans (from dried pintos - I will make extra to freeze for bean burritos)salad, canned pineapple - Approx cost $5.00. Crockpot meal 1
Tuesday: homemade chicken noodle soup, GF biscuits/grilled cheese on homemade bread, pickles - Approx cost $5.00. Crockpot meal 2
Wednesday: Round steak and mashed potatoes, salad or coleslaw, biscuits - Approx cost $7.00 Crockpot meal 3
Thursday: Homemade chicken nuggets, french fries, green beans, salad or coleslaw - Approx cost $7.00
Friday: egg sandwiches, Green Beans and Potatoes, biscuits - approx cost $2.00 (we have green beans canned from our garden and chickens for the eggs) Crockpot meal 4
Saturday: Salisbury steaks (can use ground turkey), mashed potatoes, kids veggie choice, salad or coleslaw - Approx cost $5.50 Crockpot meal 5
Total weekly spend for dinner for 5 and lunches for 3: $36.50
Not one of my more frugal weeks, but oh well. Still cheaper and healthier than take-out!
