2 Week Meal Plan

It is that time of the month (no, not THAT time of the month bahahahahaha…I crack myself up) to do some grocery shopping.  I will try to put up recipes for each thing and pictures so you can see it.  I try to make things that are filling and good for you….more bang for your buck kind of thing.

My goal, this month, is to shop for meals 2 weeks at a time with no in-betweenie shopping experiences.  We have gotten lazy and we have been making WAY more stops at the store and therefore wasting money and time.

Well…not this time, My Pretty…..(I say that knowing full well I will not hold to it, but hey, a girl has got to think positive).  Our goal, for 2 weeks (food and misc crap) is to spend $200 or less for a family of 8.  We shall see.  We.  Shall.  See.

First things first….since Boo is still “stay at home dad” we inventoried the freezer in the kitchen and then the one in the laundry room.  I was able to pull dinner out of what we found!  Super excited about that!  I had cooked and frozen enough roast for vegetable beef soup (I had 2 small things of corn, a small bag of peas and 1 thing of fresh green beans that I had frozen).  We can’t eat on soup alone because, well, that is not natural for my big family.  I also found some Amish rolls that I had frozen, so I’m thawing them out.  Then there was a random pie shell.  My wheels got to spinning….I had some leftover ham that I had cooked all day with cream of mushroom.  I put together a ham quiche using one cup of the ham, 1 c. cheddar (cause I always have cheese), 3/4 c. milk and 3 eggs.  The quiche plus the soup and rolls will be for tonight.

We are eating out of the freezer/fridge/pantry so I hope I don’t have to buy too much.

For breakfast, we have eggs, cereal, yogurt, granola bars, fruit bars, fruit

For lunch, we have lunch meat, bread, cheese cubes, snack crackers, ramen noodles, ravioli, soup, any leftovers, salad stuff, fruit, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, corn dogs.
