So menu planning is not something I do. I have good intentions to do it and sometimes even start it but then never stick with it. This week, we are trying hard to be more budget conscious when it comes to buying groceries so I thought I’d give menu planning a try. Because this was last minute on my part, I decided to use the iFood Assistant to find recipes, add to shopping list and go shopping for 7 supper meals. The boys now eat breakfast at school, me and my man don’t eat much in the morning, leaving little man to feed and since he’s only three, it’s not too hard to get his belly full. For lunch we just eat whatever…usually a sandwich or soup or something like that so I needed to focus on supper.
Here are the recipes I chose for the week. I will probably try to take photos of each one I make and post it here, with a review of taste, simplicity of meal, and overall satisfaction.
BBQ Beef Soft Tacos
Bruschetta Minute Steaks
Crips-and-Creamy Baked Chicken
Foil-Packed Chicken Fajita Dinner
Quick Taco Salad
Slow Cooker BBQ Beef Stew
Since we were completely out of food, our food bill was $301. I’m too lazy to total the actual amount that these 7 recipes were but I’m pretty for sure it wasn’t much. The big costs came from dog food, beer, and detergent. You know how that goes…especially when you have your husband with you. Anyways, I’d love to hear how you get inspiration for your menu. Do you have a system down, do you have one I can borrow? LOL Any tips you have, I’d love to hear them!
