Weekly Meal Plan #4

And it's the last week of April. How the heck did that happen?!

I really did not do a good job of sticking to our menu plan last week. On Tuesday, we got invited to dinner and on Thursday I used the sausage I was going to use for bangers & mash to make pasta instead. We got to go out for sushi on Saturday (thanks Mimi and Papa!!!) and Sunday night we had a lovely dinner with some lovely folks.

This is the last week of the month which means that I need to be very conscious of our budget for groceries. I have $85 left in our grocery budget for the month (which is actually pretty good-- in the past I've had to make do with less than $40 for the last week!) Thankfully, we have leftovers from Easter dinner that I'll repurpose...

  • Monday: Turkey Cranberry or "Christmas" sandwiches (leftover turkey from Easter dinner!)
  • Tuesday: Split Pea soup (leftover ham and ham bone from Easter dinner again!)
  • Wednesday: Homegroup dinner at the Choi's
  • Thursday: Black Bean Enchiladas (Vegan because we're having dinner with our favorite vegan gal, Tawney)
  • Friday: Steamed Fish and Vegetables with Rice
  • Saturday: Dinner out! No cooking for me! :)
  • Sunday: Leftovers
I'm SO excited to have a ham bone to cook with this week. :)

    I find your weekly meal plans highly inspirational! Does your grocery budget include meals out, or is that separate?

    Hi Amy! Our grocery budget does not include meals out; we have a separate budget for eating out/"entertainment". Thanks for reading! :)
