Meal Planning: Will the Freezer Ever Be Empty? (Week 4)

Hello everyone! 

 

Another week, another meal plan! My freezer is still incredibly well stocked with meat so once again I was easily able to stay within budget (I even got a ton of "treat" items and still ended up being under budget). So without further ado here is the grocery haul!

 

Grocery Items

  • 1 box of Cheerios
  • 1 bottle of canola oil
  • 1 bag of corn chips
  • 1 box of frozen waffles
  • 1 nectarine
  • 1 lemon
  • 1 package of basil
  • 1 ginger root
  • 1 bottle of POM pomegranate juice
  • 1 two pack of Justin's peanut butter cups

Personal Items

  • 2 tubes of toothpaste
  • 1 nail clipper (my old one has vanished)

---------------------------------------------------------------

Totals:

Grocery: 24.00

Personal items: 5.99

Running grocery total for the month: 91.44 (28.56 under budget WOOT)

Running personal item total for the month: 11.99

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meal plan:

Sunday (7/22)- Pesto Chicken over veggie pasta with spinach

Monday (7/23) Leftovers

Tuesday (7/24) Fajitas with rice

Wednesday (7/25) Leftovers

Thursday (7/26) Sticky ginger garlic chicken with rice and potstickers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Recipes:

The sticky ginger garlic chicken is a new recipe I am planning on trying out. I saw it at the link I will post below. I plan on modifying the coating to be honey, ginger, garlic, and soy sauce. I am also going to put that coating on chicken drumsticks instead of chicken tenders so we shall see how it turns out.
