Meal Planning: 4/29 thru 5/6


Should you be a new reader of "I'm Not Your Mama's Martha!", please click Meal Planning With Amanda and read through how to begin meal planning for yourself and to understand how, exactly I feed my family of three breakfast, lunch and dinner for, on average, $150 per week.  There, you will find links to printable lists for yourself as well as my Master Meal List of all the meals I make that we seem to eat on a regular basis and that I draw from when making my weekly meal plans.

Inventory (after last week's meals):
3 portions ground turkey
1 flank steak
1 portions shrimp
2 bone-in split chicken breasts
1 Basa fish fillets
9 portions ground beef
11 portions boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 portion stew meat
1 portion wings/drumsticks

As I create my meal plan each week, I'll reduce my inventory the next week by those selections and will not shop for meats between now and the time I plow through my inventory, so that 1) nothing spoils from freezer-burn, 2) I don't waste money as the meats above were purchased at the lowest possible price and 3) because I have no additional space to store anything!  :)
