3 Week Meal Plan
~~~~Edited to say that I came in right at $300~~~~
I haven’t done a 3 week shopping list in a while but with the holidays coming, I figured I needed to iron it all out…for my own sanity. I’m hoping to stay under budget which will be $300-350.
My goal is to make my own loaf bread, which I have an excellent recipe for that. My recipes makes 2 loaves, so I can double it and make the 4 loaves that I will need for the 3 weeks.
Big Daddy gets milk pretty cheaply at a new grocery store, so we will get about 4 gallons and freeze them.
I will probably make yogurt again because we have some frozen berries we can mix in with it, but I will buy some until my yogurt sets up (1-2 days). I will also be making granola to add to it.
I will probably have to make a mid 3 week run for cereal and “special” milk for Boo (aka Almond Milk)….ooh, nevermind on that, I think I have almonds, so I can make his milk! Woot!
The thing that will run up my grocery bill is my holiday baking crap but, it is once a year and we use what I bake for Christmas gifts, so we are killing two birds with one stone.
I will cook 2 roasts and use it for Vegetable Soup, Beef/Broccoli Stir Fry and Beef Stew
Tater Tot Casserole/Green Bean Casserole/Cream Cheese corn
Beef & Broccoli Stir Fry/Burnt rice
Vegetable soup and chicken noodle soup
Chili and tacos
Breakfast (bacon, sausage, casserole, cinnamon rolls, biscuits)
Zuppa Tuscana Soup/Chicken and Dumplings (odd, I know)
Cheddar Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole/Bread/Salad
Chicken Cordon Bleu Casserole/Corn pudding/peas/roasted potatoes
Pork Roast/mashed potatoes/cauliflower & broccoli au gratin/mac&cheese
