I'm in desperate need of help!
I need to make a grocery list. Payday is Friday. Our eating habits are horrendously horrendous. Really.
Budget: $150 give or take.
Duration the food needs to last: 2 weeks.
I already have ingredients and staples (flour, sugar, coconut oil, garlic, onion, potatoes, rice) though I'm low on beans.
I also have carrots and celery.
I'd like to follow the following guideline for the weekly dinner menu:
Wed: Stir-Fry and Rice
Fri: Spaghetti/some kind of pasta
Sat: Homemade pan pizzas if possible.
Sun: DHs favorite "Milanesa", breaded thin pan fried steak. (minimal breading, minimal frying oil. I think I should try baked. Would that work?)
I'm willing to try new foods, so give me things that you and your families like and I'll see if I can incorporate them into our menu (while still following my guideline.
breakfast is only for myself and the kids. I usually have a muffin (unhealthy jiffy muffins...) and milk. They get oatmeal and a hard boiled egg. I need to start eating better so I'm going to join them and eat oatmeal and an egg(s) as well. Right now I'm good on oatmeal- I got a big big box of organic instant oatmeal from Costco, and I have a big bag of steel cut oats in bulk.
lunch, I definitely need ideas for! that is also just both DDs and I.
So I guess, start throwing recipes at me that follow my guideline and are relatively inexpensive (remember $75/wk!) and I'll see what I can pull out of them as far as ingredients and we'll formulate a list.
I need your help MDC!
- also, no food allergies or anything, but I'd prefer everything be homemade and minimally processed. things don't NEED to be organic either- we need to start eating balanced diets before that.
