|The Green Beans emerge!|
Today marks the first full week of April, and thus commences our Extreme Grocery Experiment. It's going to be an interesting month.
I'm changing my grocery shopping days to Tuesday, to take advantage of the sale fliers by knowing what's actually on sale before I get there.
Grocery Budget for April: $350
Estimated Spending for week - $190. This is for the monthly store-able staples I've allowed myself, any meat that's $1.50/lb or less (up to $8 worth), and the week's perishables like milk, eggs, produce. I won't bore you with the whole list... Yet.
The Menu Plan:
Monday: Sausage & Potato Casserole - using the rest of the potatoes we have and sausage in freezer
Tuesday: Refried Beans & Rice, Tortillas - Using dried beans and rice on hand, tortillas on hand
Wednesday: Teriyaki Chicken & Rice - Using leftover chicken, with plain (or maybe fried) rice
Thursday: Cheeseburger Mac - Buy bacon & cheese, use pasta and ground beef on hand
Friday: Biscuits & Gravy (or breakfast of some kind) - Buy bacon, use freezer sausage, make biscuits
Sunday: Sunday Chicken, french bread, potatoes, and a veggie (I'm starting a new "Big Sunday Meal" tradition. We did it last night and it was really nice.)
That's the plan!
