Menu Monday

Another week, another menu…I feed my family of four on a monthly budget of $300.  That budget includes any going out to eat, diapers for my son, and general household needs (toiletries, cat food, etc).  I wanted to post what we eat on a weekly basis to give you an idea (an asterisk indicates a new recipe I’m trying) :

I’ve done so terribly sticking with the meal plan this month….which means you’re going to see some repeats.  The good news is that we’ve eaten from home, and I didn’t even do a grocery shopping trip last week!  First week of my adult life that I haven’t gone grocery shopping, so I’m proud of myself.  Maybe now this week I’ll impress myself again and actually STICK to my plan!
