Menu Monday

This week I spent 102$ at Walmart. I was very disappointed, but that included a 7$ bottle of Eucerin lotion, so technically I only spent 95$ on food items.

This week's menu is VERY blah, but I wanted to challenge myself to stay under 100$. The 100$ was for 7 dinner meals and all breakfasts, lunches, and snacks.

Monday-Weight Watchers honey mustard pork chops, pasta roni, green beans
Tuesday-chicken, roasted cauliflower, steamed cabbage
Wednesday- turkey burgers with broccoli and baked chips
Thursday-chicken, yellow rice, salad
Friday-spaghetti and green beans
Saturday-Easter dinner-I haven't purchased groceries for this yet-this is husband's deal. He can pay. :D I believe we are having a brisket, deviled eggs, WW mac and cheese, and grilled asparagus. I plan on sitting on my butt and playing with my monkey love Emma.
Sunday-lemon chicken pasta and broccoli
Monday-chicken, broccoli, box mac and cheese


  1. Waaaait a minute, you are planning on having all of those yummy dinners, breakfast AND snacks for only 100 bucks? I have got to start doing what you're doing. I am spending way too much at the store for what seems like nothing. Can you put up a recipe for the lemon chicken pasta?? :) Please :)

  2. WOW. I spend between 150 - 200 a week on BLD& Snacks for the two of us. I think next Menu Monday we need to put down our shopping lists, I am SO curious how you do this! I am impressed as all get out right now!

  3. I need to sit down & calculate up how much we're spending on food each week. It is a little harder since I travel, but I think you're buying for 3 & spending less than $100. That's great!

  4. $102 is still good. I went way over this week without a list. :(

    Oh...the charm necklace. I just Googled Plastic Charm Necklace from the 80s and it was the first one. But you can search Plastic Charm Necklace on eBay and buy them still!!!


  5. Wow I have to say that is great! I spend way to much for the two of us! I like the idea of planning out the menu for the week, but with just two, we tend to eat out more then we would like to admit!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
