Meal Planning 5/6 thru 5/12


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.

Safeway $126.90
(3) 4lb strawberries (2 are missing from the photo as I had to process them for Preschool Snack earlier)
Whole wheat wraps
(2) Fat-free milk (on sale $1.99 when you buy 2 or more)

1lb deli turkey
1.5 lb deli ham

Fiber One breakfast pastries
(2) Jimmy Dean all natural pork sausage (Buy 1, Get 1 Free PLUS I had a $2.00 coupon, making them only $0.99 each!)
Parmaggano-Reggiano cheese
Gryere cheese
(4) Lobster tails
Italian sausage
French rolls

Inventory (after last week's meals):
2 portions ground turkey
1 flank steak
1 portions shrimp
2 bone-in split chicken breasts
8 portions ground beef
8 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!  :)
