Last night I made a menu of meals I wanted to make for the month and then made a grocery list of all the items I didn't have. I headed to the grocery store this morning (coupons in hand) and got everything I needed for $101.34. That also included laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, tissues, hand soap, etc so I don't think that was too bad considering these meals should last us close to a month.
It was truly an all afternoon process and I didn't get 2 of the things made, but I'm planning on finishing those off tonight. Here's the things on my menu of meals and links to the recipes I used:
Southwest Chicken with Chipotle Cream
King Ranch Chicken Casserole
Peach Dump Chicken
Creamy Lasagna **this recipe was from my sister so I don't have a link**
Potato Pierogie Lasagna
I still have to make the Pierogie Lasagna and Breakfast Burritos tonight, but here are pix of the others.
Creamy Lasagna (ready to go into the freezer)
King Ranch Chicken Casserole (can you tell I love black olives?)
Southwest Chicken with Chipotle Cream (got covered with shredded cheese before going into the freezer)
Peach Dump Chicken (obv still marinating)
Sour Cream Banana Bread (by FAR the BEST BEST BEST banana bread EVER!!)
I want to eat this stuff every day of my life!!! If you like banana bread, you HAVE to check out this recipe! Seriously the most moist, sweet, delish banana bread I've ever eaten! I even love the ends of the loaf, it's that good!!! I will never use another banana bread recipe again!
