Still working hard to get my grocery budget down. This week I’m going to be shopping at Save-a-lot. We will see how it goes. I got a $5 off coupon online for any $20 spent. I’m sure that I’ll spend more than $20 this week. I have lots of coupons that I have found that will hopefully make it an inexpensive week. So here on my meals folks! Enjoy!
Monday: Chicken Burritos, tortilla chips, salsa – I usually season the chicken and make them with rice, black beans, cheddar cheese, green onions and any of the normal fix-ens, this is a family favorite my husband loves burritos!
Tuesday: Pizza- order out! Treat ourselves out night!
Wednesday: Baked Potato bar
Thursday: Chicken Pot Pie – this is a friend of mines recipes that I am eager to try out! Buy some ready made pie crusts. Place one in the bottom of the pie pan. In a mixing bowl add 1 can of cream of celery soup, 1 can of cream of chicken soup, 1 can of mixed vegetables, and any leftover chicken or turkey – mix together – put in pie pan on top of the crust. Put the other crust on top and pinch together sides. Bake (you’ve preheated your oven already to whatever the directions on the pie crust box are) according to directions on pie crust – usually about 30 minutes or until golden brown. Everyone loves this and there are never any leftovers 🙂
Friday: Sausage Casserole, scrambled eggs, fruit- also a friends recipe You need 2 cans of crescent rolls, 2 pounds of breakfast sausage, and 1 and 1/2 blocks of cream cheese.
Cook your sausage until done and crumbly – mix in a large bowl with the block and 1/2 of cream cheese. Lay out 1 can of crescent rolls in the bottom of a casserole dish – add the sausage mixture – add the other can of crescent rolls on top (just unroll the crescent rolls so it makes 1 long pastry). Cook according to the directions on the crescent roll can. That’s all there is to it.
Saturday: Easy Lasagna, garlic bread, salad
I use 9 lasagna noodles, 1 jar of Prego spaghetti sauce, 1 container of ricotta (I can’t remember which size – but it’s not the tiny one and not the huge one either – possible 12 or 16 ounce size.), about a 1/4 cup of parmesan, an egg and some parsley and about 2 cups of mozzarella. Boil your 9 noodles – while that’s going mix your ricotta, 1/4 cup of parmesan, 1 egg and a palm of parsley in a bowl. After the noodles are boiled, rinse so you can handle them. Spray a casserole pan with cooking spray and add 3 noodles to the bottom, use about 1/2 of your cheese mixture on top of the noodles, dump about 1/3 of your jar of sauce and spread, then add another layer of noodles. Spread the other half of your cheese mixture, dump another 1/3 of your sauce, spread and add your last layer of noodles. Add the remaining sauce, put your mozzarella on top and bake for about 30 minutes at 350 or until the cheese melts. Very easy and everyone loves this one too. This is also Vicky’s recipe! Enjoy!
