One thing I also try to do when I am planning meals, is to scope out the different store circulars in my area to find the best deal on groceries. This also works well if you like to clip coupons, because nothing makes a coupon more effective than a sale! If that's not your thing that's fine!
You will also notice that I use what I call roll-over meals to cut costs. I planned a roll-over meal for you this week. The first night you're going to cook the Pot Roast, being sure to save the leftovers in the fridge. The leftover roast will then be used in the Beef Mango Wraps. This kills two birds with one stone. It saves you money and uses up the leftovers. Gotta love that!
On that note, here's your rundown:
|Pot Roast, Vegetables and Beer|
|Pork Chops with Mustard Sauce|
|Beef Mango Wraps *Recipe for Black Bean Relish at the bottom of beef mango recipe|
|Spaghetti with Veal Bolognese|
The grand total for this week is:
