Tuesday, May 10, 2016
This week I bought 5 meals,snacks, breakfast and lunch stuff for $76!
*Sorry for the crinkled receipt

Monday: Mac n cheese and veggies with a salad that we had in pantry
Tuesday: Sloppy Joes & homemade fries
Wednesday: Baked Potatoes & salad with cheese quesadillas for kids
Thursday: Hot dogs & baked beans with veggies
Friday: Burrito Bowls
Saturday: Out
Sunday: Baked potato soup

Breakfasts for the week are pretty much the same stuff we always eat:
Frozen waffles, French toast, cereal, fruit, eggs, oatmeal

Leftovers, cheese quesadillas, peanut butter sandwhiches with fruit


Sloppy Joes: Adapted from this recipe.

1 lb ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 green bell pepper
1/2 medium onion
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. tomato paste
salt to taste
3/4 cup ketchup (may need some more)
1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1 cup water
a couple shakes of Worcestershire sauce
Kaiser rolls ( or any buns you prefer)

Brown ground beef, drain off most liquid. Add chopped onions and peppers and cook for a few minutes. Add garlic and cook for an additional minute or so. Add all of the seasonings, tomato paste, water, Worcestershire, and brown sugar and simmer for 15 minutes or so. Add to buns and enjoy!

Baked potato Soup: Adapted from this recipe.

5 slices bacon, diced
3 tbsp. butter
1 cup white onion, diced
2 cups milk, warmed
2 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (or sour cream)
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1/4 cup all purpose flour
1.5 lbs. potatoes peeled (Yukon preferably)
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

*I cook sometimes with bacon and sometimes without but when I do- I bake it in the oven on 400 for 2o minutes or until crispy and crumble it.*
Heat a stockpot over medium high heat, add butter and melt it. Add in onions and cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Add flour over top and mix. Cook for another minute. Pour in chicken broth until combined. Then milk, potatoes, and bacon. Continues cooking until comes to a simmer but not boil, while stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to medium low and cover. Simmer for 10-20 minutes, stirring every few minutes so it doesn't burn on the bottom. Add in greek yogurt, seasonings, and cheese, stir. Enjoy!

Burrito Bowls: I just brown ground beef or cook chicken and add taco seasoning. Then add on top of cooked rice, with lettuce, black beans, corn, salsa, avocado, etc.

For my hotdogs, I usually just put them in the crockpot on low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours and they come out tasting SO good! I definitely don't make hot dogs all of the time but this week I asked J for something he wanted and he said hotdogs! lol
