Pasta day! We’ve got some grilled steak leftover and I’m going to cook it in the crockpot with some barbecue sauce to tenderize it a little more, and maybe some mac and cheese.
Tuesday: Taco Tuesday! Soft tacos, Spanish rice, and refried beans. Ground beef is $5, tortillas $1, cheese $.50, sour cream $.50 and veggies $1. Rice, ro-tel, and refried beans were free with coupons. Cost – about $8.
Wednesday: By request – Baked Penne with chicken, broccoli and smoked mozzarella, from here. I love this dish and so does my family. I’d be embarrassed to admit that we double or triple this, but I’m really not. It’s delicious and you should make it. Cost on this is about $13.
Thursday: Crockpot meal.
Friday: Fend for yourself/clean out the fridge/freezer day. Usually Fridays are jampacked with kids wanting to go different places and Mom wanting to cook. 🙂
Saturday: Another easy day.
Sunday: Grilling for the 4th. Steaks, potato salad, and Ranch Style beans, probably. 🙂

If I remembered to update. I’m feeding 3 adults, one teenage boy, one tween (girl), and a toddler boy. None of our portions are tiny, and my goal is to spend no more than $10 per meal.
