Because my parents are coming on Friday, I only meal planned for Mon - Thurs. Aaron and I will be at a youth function on Fri night so my folks will figure out what they will eat. Then once my folks get here we'll work out something for Saturday and Sunday. They're also watching thier calories so we'll all be eating healthy!
Monday- Green Beans, Sausage, and Potatoes- This is one of Aaron's favorites and I like it because it's a crock pot meal!
Tuesday- I'm going to be at a baby shower for a sweet friend at church on Tuesday, so Aaron will be taking the girls out for dinner for a Daddy/Daughter date night!
Wednesday- Turkey Sandwiches- Wednesdays are always exceptionally crazy. Aaron comes home from work and picks us up and we head straight to youth group. Normally, I feed the girls before we leave and then I make sandwiches for Aaron and I to eat on the way there.
Thursday- French Onion Burgers - I figured we need to have at least 1 regular meal this week. I like french onion burgers. They are an easy take on hamburgers and they are yummy! I just fix hamburgers in a skillet on the stove. When they're almost done, I add a can of low sodium french onion soup and let them simmer for a few mins. Plop on a bun, add a slice of cheese, and ta-da!
Since it's a rather simple week, I was able to do all of our grocery shopping for about $65 dollars. I did some shopping at ALDI like I always do, then we hit up Meijer where they were doing the 10 for $10 sale. Then I finished up at Walmart. Disclaimer! Always make sure you check your prices before you jump feet first into 10 for $10 sales. If you aren't brand specific, a lot of time store brands are cheaper than the $1 price (ie- We got Meijer brand pudding for $.86 instead of $1 for Jello brand). Also, Marshmallows at Aldi were only $.76 cents instead of $1 at Meijer. The concept of 10 for $10 is great and we did get some great deals (Aunt Millie's Cinnamon Raisin English Muffins for a buck!) but sometimes it's deceiving!
I'll leave you with this recipe I found on Pinterest this week. (Pinned here). I think this might be my post 5k reward after my race in Sept. It looks soooooo good! It's a vegan recipe too! I'm not a vegan, but I know there are great benefits to it. So, you can't really go wrong with this right!?
