12 Day Menu

I'm so boring (and exhausted) the only thing I've been writing on here in our menu. I was excited to hit up Sprouts last Wednesday after BSF and get about two weeks worth of produce for all around a $1 per pound or less. They also had boneless thighs for $1.69 so I stocked up on those as well. I was pretty excited to be able to plan out all our meals until after our next payday and still have $80 in grocery cash left! I cheated somewhat since there was a bit on meat in my freezer to start the month off.

When buying large quantities of produce, it can be tricky to ensure that nothing goes to waste. I check the drawer everyday and plan to eat the softer, more delicate fruits and vegetable first and save things like sweet potatoes, carrots and apples for later in the two week cycle. It was a challenge to get this much food to all fit into my refrigerator.

Monday 4/6 Herbed grilled chicken with grilled cauliflower and red peppers (I have a grill basket)
Tuesday Cobb salad with grilled chicken from freezer
Wednesday Grain free peanut butter pancakes, sausage and strawberries
Thursday Beef kabobs with pineapple, green and yellow squash
Friday Chicken tacos in the crockpot (new recipe) lettuce wrap or salad for me.
Saturday Lunch- leftovers/grilled cheese,
Sunday Lunch- chicken salad Dinner- cream cheese peppers, salads or to be determined veggies
Monday  Egg roll bowls with fried rice and small amount of breakfast sausage tossed in
Tuesday soy sauce and honey marinated grilled chicken
Wednesday egg bake with sweet potatoes
Thursday Herbed grilled chicken
Friday I'm going to attempt to make a healthy from scratch and grain free version of chicken, broccoli and rice casserole and sub in cauliflower rice
