After Disney it is safe to say that we are on austerity this week. So how do you still serve healthy meals without spending a fortune at the grocery store. You will have to make some concessions. My first one was that I shopped at a discount store instead of my favorite grocery store.
Monday - Penne pasta (mushrooms, frozen spinach, ham, walnuts, parmesan)
*I had frozen spinach and parmesan on hand so this was a good choice
*I couldn't buy ham because of the nitrates in it. So I bought Hormel ham sandwich meat as substitute and BONUS I had a coupon)
Tuesday - (We are eating out because we are playing basketball in a fundraiser - teachers vs Harlem Wizards)
Wednesday - (Ash Wednesday) - Veggie soup (box of chicken broth, frozen corn, green beans, broccoli and pasta stars)
Thursday - Quiche (Rachel Ray recipe) - ham and broccoli
Friday - (meatless) Pierogies (Mrs T's with onions and butter), broccoli, applesauce
Groceries = $75.00
Snacks = Annies snack mix, Chex mix (coupon), cheese sticks (coupon)
Extra = dog food, some new storage containers bc coupon was going to expire :) 6 pack of mini cans of soda (I know its a weakness but I am trying to cut way back)
