Here are the meals we did eat this week:
whole wheat angel hair pasta with chicken sausage & mushroom/ripe olive sauce
sweet & sour chicken (from The Biggest Loser Family Cookbook) with brown rice
cheeseburgers & steak fries (I think you know what those look like.)
Other than most of the ingredients for the quesedilla, the only other thing I had to buy for these meals were 2 bell peppers. The rest came from our pantry, fridge & freezer. Here's the list of everything I used up for dinners:
~package of Sam's Club chicken sausages
~jar of spaghetti sauce
~finished up 1/2 a box of whole wheat angel hair pasta
~2 pounds of boneless/skinless chicken breasts
~2 tomatoes from our garden
~1 pound package of hamburger patties
~sourdough english muffins
~bag of frozen steak fries
~finished a can of parmesan cheese
I went to the grocery today and did really well. The only things I bought for meals this week were turkey bacon and a head of romaine lettuce, both for BLTs tonight. I reserved a few whole leaves of the lettuce for sandwiches and chopped the rest up to use for salads. I also bought stuff for my husband's lunches, baby food, a few staples that we've used up and need to keep on hand (Worcestershire sauce, Parmesan cheese, jelly, Dijon mustard) and the ingredients for two dishes to take to a family get together next weekend.
Oh, and I did buy several outfits for the little one. All of the summer stuff is on clearance at $2 or $3. I spent $20 and got a ton of darling clothes to put back for next year.
