Weekly Wednesday Menu Planning

Not much of an introduction tonight, as it's 9:30pm. Good news is that I shaved my food budget by just over $100! I shop weekly but since I shop Wednesday to Wednesday my Grocery bill (which includes food for the fur babies and household goods) lasts about 5.5 weeks. The biggest thing that helped was planning my snacks! My hubby was buying lunch for himself but in order to save the household money I wanted to try and start making him lunch. It's taking some doing but considering, I saved over $100 bought for 2 adults breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks plus the animals...I'm going to go ahead and toot that horn.
On a side note, I will say my hubby does not eat like me at all. Unless I trick him into it, so I won't post "his menu" for breakfast or lunch.

With that said, here is the menu for the next week or so. I have to make 1 adjustment, still trying to figure that out...so probably shouldn't toot that horn just yet. I will post recipes over the next few days, but for now here's the menu plan.

26 Thurs:
(B)reakfast: Green Apple Breakfast Sausage, 4 egg whites, 1/4 cup prunes
AM(Snack): Coco-monkey smoothie (I have been using carob powder for these...carob is not the greatest but might just need to use less carob powder.)
(L)unch: Grilled Chicken Breast, green beans with almonds
PM(Snack): Pistachios and carrots
(D)inner: Artichokes, with lemon juice & grilled chicken (This is the recipe I'll need to switch with a different night because it will take to long to make.)

Blessings Everyone,
