Menu Plan for August 31st - September 6th

This marks the fifth week that I've been menu planning, and with the exception of this Saturday's tacos and burritos, we have not had a single repeat dinner so far! That's how many new recipes I've been able to find and add to my recipe binder!

This week's grocery bill came out to $37.69, but we're having beef 3 times this week. As I mentioned in my commissary recap post, I know that I can lower our food cost even more by making meatless meals, but we're carnivores and would rather save in other areas so we can have meat as much as we want.

Fried Rice w/ Ham & Asparagus

Grilled Steak w/ Greek Salad

Pasta w/ Ricotta & Edamame

Pork Chops w/ Apricot Sauce & sides of rice & veggies


Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo

Tacos & Burritos

And as always, if a dinner strikes your fancy and you would like the
recipe for it, please by all means ask me for it by either leaving a
comment or emailing me directly! Tomorrow's Mmm Monday will be a
reader request...I will be sharing the recipe for Crispy Orecchiette
with Broccoli, Pine Nuts, and Garlic (sorry it's been so long Spice...I
tried to contact you to tell you that it's coming up but couldn't find
your contact information!).

Great menu! I never save that much at the commissary. Wow! Great job! Although I don't buy a lot of convenience food items either, so I am probably saving for what I do get though. :D
