Menu Plan & Grocery Round Up: 1/17-1/23

by Karen on January 19, 2009

Despite the extra healthy snack foods on our list, this week’s total was back within our budget. Yay!

Our total for the week was $54. And I feel like our cart was stuffed!

Here’s our menu plan for the week:

Saturday: Chicken & vegetable pot pie (We used a store-bought pie crust to make the recipe easier, and substituted heavy cream for 1% milk to make it a little healthier. And of course I limited my portion size.)

Sunday: Stuffed manicotti (We omitted the beef and added spinach to the stuffing instead. We also left out the butter, and used low-fat cheeses.)

Monday: Sandwiches/leftovers

Tuesday: Beef tacos with refried beans

Wednesday: Grilled chicken sandwiches

Thursday: BLTs with baked oven fries

Friday: Homemade pizza

Looking back over this menu, it doesn’t include the healthiest of meals. But I find that as long as I’m careful with portioning, I can avoid eating too many calories for the day.
