Week 3 Menu Plan

 So it's back again! This week we had a bit of extra money so we bought some extras (ice cream, yogurt raisins and spreadable cheese) but for the main part we easily stayed under $50

Week 3 Menu Plan

As always here are some wonderful printables to help you menu plan:
Weekly Menu with Grocery List
Monthly Menu with Grocery List
Freezer Cooking Packet
Daily Planner & Menu Planner Packet

Here are some links from previous menu plans:
$50 a Week Menu Plan
Week One Menu Plan
Week Two Menu Plan

B: eggs & toast
L: leftovers
D: BBQ Chicken, mac and cheese, green beans I cook up 4-6 chicken breasts in the crockpot (recipe) I then use these for the bbq chicken (bbq on the side), grilled chicken and the chicken and rice, I just reheat it.

B: Protein Shake (for me) Josh doesn't normally eat breakfast so I don't normally factor him in.
L: Grilled chicken salad Aldi sells a bag of three Romaine lettuce heads for about $3! Score!
D: Chicken and rice I just use a chicken box of rice.

B: Cereal
L: Flatbread Pizza [homemade sauce (recipe)] The flatbread I cannot find at aldi so when I make my kroger run for turkey I pick up flatbread!
D: Meatloaf, baked potato and green beans

B: Protein Shake
L: Turkey Sandwich and serving amount of chips
D: Homemade Tuna Helper (recipe) We both agreed that this is something we probably won't try again, but I'll post the recipe because it wasn't terrible just not a favorite!

B: Protein Shake
L: Cheese quesidilla
D: Chili with tortilla chips I'm going to give you the price breakdown:
2 lb ground turkey $1.96 per pound =  $3.92
2 16oz cans tomato sauce $0.69 per can = $1.38
1 can organic dark red kidney beans $1.00 per can
2 packets hot chili mix $1.00 per packet = $2.00
Servings = 8 = $1.16 per serving

B: Protein Shake I LOVE my protein powder, when mixed with milk tastes like a Wendy's frosty!
L: Flatbread pizza For the flatbread pizza I use the homemade sauce, four pepperonis, a slice of mozzarella cheese (to control portion size) and bake at 400 for 7 minutes
D: Tacos with refried beans

B: cereal
L: Leftovers
D: Frozen pizza

**For all these meals I substituted ground beef for ground turkey. We found ground turkey for $1.69 a pound (in 1 pound rolls) at Aldi! I was shocked!

Please let me know if you like the serving size price break down!
