Meal plans -march 27

Make a plan, or plan to fail.   Meal plans are a way to keep on track and make your life easier.   Our meal plans don't necessarily happen on a specific day, bit most of the time they  happen,  plans change and we still need to punt every now and then.

  • Spicy peanut chicken (BC) , rice , mandarin oranges
  • Pack food - cheese and crackers to potluck.   
  • Spaghetti and red sauce, parm, green beans 
  • Baked cod , rice mix rice, honey-ginger carrots ๐Ÿฅ• 
  • Buffalo chicken pizza ๐Ÿ• 
  • Tacos  , refried beans, rice ๐ŸŒฎ 
  • Breakfast for dinner.: blueberry waffles, sausage, fruit ๐Ÿ‰ 

Notes : 
  1. Spicy peanut chicken is in the in line Betty Crocker cookbook.   Rice ๐Ÿš from bulk (.03 serving) mandarin oranges ๐ŸŠAre on sale and there are coupons out there. 
  2. Cheese and crackers ( pot luck) 
  3. Spaghetti and red sauce : red sauce was .84 at Safeways with the basket coupon. Speghetti is .69 at FM. Fresh parm was on sale at FM a few weeks ago.  My terminology for parm is any hard cheese that is the cheapest when I need to replenish stock.  Parm, Romano, beans I'm still working in .33 from Winco.    
  4. Baked cod , (Safeways ) seasoned rice mix homemade, carrots ๐Ÿฅ• cooked with honey and ginger - gotta have some color on an otherwise white plate!   
  5.  Buffalo chicken pizza ๐Ÿ•: blue cheese dressing (or ranch) chicken shreds that are marinated in a hot sauce, motts, diced red peppers, blue cheese. 
  6. Tacos , homemade refried beans (pressure cooker, rice ๐Ÿš with salsa.   
  7. Breakfast 4 dinner : blueberry waffles scratch, sausage from  last weeks FM, berries.   
Numbers 4 and 6 are the priciest, but the rest are well within the low side of a five dollar budget.   
They average. By averaging, you can afford more variety. Trying something new ( spicy peanut chicken ) is another way to avoid boredom.
