This week's grocery shop, with all my preemptive doubts, turned out to be only $.10 more expensive than last week, leaving me with a grand total of $48.36.
Even I'm surprised, since two of my ingredients sent me over to The Bulk Barn, and we all know what happens when we shop there...things tend to get a little out of hand :)
Tuesday- Egg Omelettes and Oven-roasted potatoes
Wednesday- Chinese Chicken and Rice
Friday-African peanut soup with Homemade Bread
Sunday- Easter Dinner
Monday- Homemade Whole wheat buns, for 2nd Easter dinner
Freezer- Veggie lasagna
You might have noticed that the veggie lasagna recipe is the same one as last week's for our Sunday meal. That's because I didn't make it! I still had all the ingredients, so I decided to tuck it away in the freezer for another time.
- Canned water chestnuts
- Can diced tomatoes
- Red pepper
- Coconut milk
- Green onion
- Sweet potatoes
- Chicken breast
- Whole wheat tortillas
- Walnut pieces (BB)
- Whole wheat pastry flour (BB)
- Mozzarella cheese
- Whole wheat spaghetti
- Greek yogurt
- Crunchy peanut butter
I've been noticing that, no matter what recipes I have planned for the week, the majority of the items will be on sale. I only have God to thank for that! Next week, however, I'm going to try to plan meals by looking in the flyers first, to see if I can save even more money!
