Meal Plan Monday - Grocery Challenge Week 1

Okay, here's the plan :

Breakfast: I will be eating Oatmeal or Meusli in an attempt to use up oatmeal and avoid buying more cold cereal, Craig doesn't like oatmeal so he can stick with the regular boxed stuff.

Lunch:- Sandwiches, 2 pieces of fruit each, granola bar for Craig (I gave them up for Lent and didn't miss the 7 grams of extra sugar each day but started up again after Easter. I will be giving them up again for this month)

Sunday - Grilled Chicken Salad with nuts, cranberries, broccoli, and homemade salad dressing (minus basil)

Monday - Tacos with homemade tortillas

Tuesday - Black Beans and Rice, Homemade Bread, Salad

Wednesday - Eggs, Toast and Smoothies

Thursday - Spaghetti with Pesto Sauce (how long does jarred Pesto last? Hopefully quite a while or we will be eating plain spaghetti) and Squash

Friday - Pizza Margherita (same dough as Tuesday's bread), Frozen veggies - missing my basil again :-(

Saturday - Shephard's Pie

Popcorn, regular or maybe caramel if I need a real treat
Tapioca pudding
This Week I bought:

Farmer's market = $4

Grocery Store = $7.27
1 apple

CVS = $2.10
3 boxed cereal
Monthly total to date = $ 13.37
