Meng Menu +tips for saving on meat

Sunday: BBQ beef sandwiches, chips, veggies
Monday: Flavorful (flounder) cod, rice, green beans
Wednesday: Scrambled eggs, sausage, hash browns, fruit
Thursday: General Tso’s chicken, fried rice w/ peas and carrots
Friday: BLTs, chips, carrots
Saturday: Chicken parmesan, pasta w/ marinara sauce, salad

Here's our menu for the week! I was really trying to keep our grocery bill low this week and I ended up spending $105 which included guinea pig food ($7), toilet paper ($6), shampoo ($3), and body wash ($3) for me. I wish the final tally had been less but oh well. 

I'm sure this is not a news flash to anyone, but I've found that a good way to save (and still have meat for dinner every meal) is to shop sales and stretch meat over two meals. 

The BBQ sandwiches are leftovers from our london broil yesterday night. 

I bought a bag of frozen cod on sale for $10 last week and we had it for a meal last week and this week. 

The chicken on Tuesday and Saturday I am using from a BOGO free Tyson boneless/skinless frozen chicken I got 2 weeks ago. Bone in Chicken breasts were also on sale this week for 99c a pound so I am going to use some for making soup for lunch for me and for the General Tso's chicken on Thursday. 

Breakfast for dinner is always a good money saver. I really like a brand of turkey sausage that I can buy for $1.89. It goes on sale frequently for $1 each but this week it wasn't on sale. Plus, eggs are a great source of protein and are really inexpensive for dinner (or breakfast!)
