Menu plan: 7/18 – 7/24

Still no sales on chicken, but pork tenderloin was buy one, get one, so we’re eating pork this week!

We came in right on budget at the grocery story: $60 almost on the dot. If there’s one thing I’ve gotten out of this summer of cash budgeting, it’s estimating grocery costs based on a shopping list and cutting expenses down to fit our budget. We’ve only been at this for about 6 weeks, but it’s already so much easier for me to look at the list, estimate the cost of each item, and whittle it down until we’re without our budget.

We ended the week with $5 in our pockets, but we started with only $80 this week (the ATM where we happened to stop only allowed withdrawals in $20 denominations, so we decided to try to get through the week with $10 less).

Here’s our menu plan for the week:

Saturday: Balsamic chicken with baby spinach
Sunday: Pork kebabs and corn on the cob
Monday: Roasted pork tenderloin with steamed veggies
Tuesday: Pork enchiladas with refried beans
Wednesday: Pork taco salad
Thursday: Vegetarian three-bean chili
Friday: Pork wonton wraps and stir fried veggies

    I’m not sure where you live but Albertsons has boneless skinless chicken breast on sale for $1.88 lb which is pretty good.
