Monday: Guinness Roast Beef
- Okay, this was A-mazing! And it was a splurge, but who cares because it tasted so good.
- I had the onions, garlic, spices, and corn starch.
- I bought a chuck roast ($9), beef broth ($2), 2 bottles of Guinness ($4), 4 carrots ($1), and a head of cabbage ($1.50).
The total was $17.50, but I had leftovers and I reused the meat for another day.
Tuesday: Cajun Fettucini Alfredo (I will post this recipe soon)
- For this recipe, I had the alfredo sauce and the spices. - (I froze this a month or two ago, and when it defrosted, I just added some more cream and some more parmesan cheese to even out the consistency.) It tasted totally fine - I was leery to freeze that type of thing, but it worked!
- I bought the chicken ($12) and the fettucini ($2).
This recipe cost $14, and I had enough for lunch the next day. For the spices, I used Penzey's spices red and black spices.
Wednesday: White Chicken Chili
- For this recipe, I had all of the spices, the onion, the garlic, the olive oil, dried beans, the chicken from last night and 4 cups of chicken broth.
- I purchased the parsley ($2) and another container of chicken broth. ($2)
My total for this meal was $4, and I froze two more containers of it. That will be two more dinners for us, and 3 lunches for me!
Thursday: Open Faced Roast Beef Sandwiches
- For this, I had the roast, the gravy, the bread, and I simply bought the potatoes to make mashed potatoes ($2).
The total is $2 for the dinner, and we definitely had enough for a lunch too!
And, this recipe is pretty self-explanatory. Toast bread, add roast, put mashed potatoes on the side, drown the whole thing in gravy... you're set.
Friday: Butternut Squash stuffed Shells with Brown Butter Sauce
- For tonight's dinner, I had the ricotta cheese, the pasta shells, garlic, parmesan cheese and the butter.
- I bought butternut squash ($2), a container of spinach ($2), and the sage ($2).
This meal cost $6, and we had way too much of it. It was good on day one, so make a half portion because this is the dinner that never ends.
Saturday: Waffles with strawberries and whipped cream
- I had everything for this recipe (flour, milk, eggs, cinnamon, rice krispy cereal, vanilla, vegetable oil, baking powder, salt and heavy cream) except for the strawberries ($2).
- I use the heavy cream to make fresh whipped cream, I cut up the strawberries, and the secret weapon is Trader Joe's sugar-coffee grinder. Grind some on top of your waffles, and you will not be disappointed!
Dinner = $2.
Sunday: Stuffed Shells Again for free!
The meals this week cost $45.40 I'm pretty impressed with this one if I don't say so myself. :)
Have a great week!
