My two week meal plan

Meal Plan Banner

I’m trying something new this week.  I am so tired of going to the grocery store every weekend and spending $200, just to have “nothing to eat” come Wednesday, and to do it again next weekend!

This week I am trying to plan my meals out for two weeks.  That was the easy part.  I just simply made my list, numbered 1-14 and wrote out my meals.  I made a quick glance through my freezer and pantry and chose the first few meals based off what I already had.

Next, I had to sit down and make my list.  I had to get all of our essentials, things to make lunches, and then our planned meals.  After a few attempts I figured out what was going to work best.  I just started listing what I needed that I didn’t already have, and then when something came up in a recipe again I would just make a tally mark.  For example shredded cheese and cream of chicken soup.  Those came up quite a bit.  I’ll give you my meal plan and you can decide if you are brave enough to try it out.  I’m still at the beginning of the list.  However, I went to the grocery store to buy my entire list and my total came to $213, after my coupons and price matching (which was AWESOME, this was my first time) my total came to $193.  Now, let’s see if it really lasts two whole weeks.

1.  Ranch Chicken Pot Pie (This is a big recipe that I will make into two pans, and freeze one)

2.  Beef and Bean Enchiladas

3.  Chicken Tortilla Soup

4.  Mexican Baked Chicken

5.  Chicken Quesadillas with special sauce

6.  Homemade Pizza

7.  Poppy Seed Chicken

8.  Cajun Roasted Turkey Breast

9.  Chicken Tamale Casserole

10.  Roast Beef Melts

11.  Chicken & Broccoli Stirfry

12.  Jalapeno Stuffed Chicken

13.  Baked Spaghetti

14.  Golden Chicken Enchiladas

I will post these recipes as I make them and link them up.  Hopefully everything turns out.  Wish me luck.
