This is week 1 of shopping, and I came in at $29.05.
I know that doesn't seem like a lot, but I have fruit and frozen veggies, and a lot of chicken in the freezer.
Here are the dinners that we have for the first little bit of January.
January 1 - Kidney Bean casserole with cornbread. (this is basically your beans and cornbread meal)
2nd - hot dogs and broccoli
3 - chicken, cauliflower, and cornbread dressing (christmas leftovers from the freezer)
4 - dominican rice and beans
5 - bean lettuce wraps and pears.
6- Chicken pot pie and rolls, salad
7 - Chicken alfredo with bowtie pasta
8 - leftovers
9 - chicken tacos
and that's all I have for now and I do have all the ingredients for the above right now.
I've got to get planning the next 10-ish days or so and make a shopping list. I won't have as much on hand for that trip so I know I'll be right up close to my $50 allotment.
I'm excited to see what I can do!
