This weekend, I spent some time shopping the local grocery sales as well as going to Costco. As we walked around Costco, checking out the samples, I'm amazed remembering all the money we used to spend on ready-made food. Now, instead of being tempted to spend a lot of money on that kind of food, if it's something the family likes, I figure out how I can make it - usually better and healthier, since I can choose fresh ingredients.
Here's my plan for this week.
Monday: Meatball sandwiches with the 93% ground beef I got for 50% off.
Tuesday: Broccoli quiche
Wednesday: Lentil and sausage stew.
Friday: Homemade pizza. I need to make some more pizza sauce! Generally I make enough for a month at a time and put it in the freezer. Pizza sauce is super easy to make, and much cheaper than premade! Check out this recipe (don't be intimidated by all the ingredients!), or this one, with just a few ingredients.
Saturday: Pulled pork, homemade bread, and salad.
Sunday: Turkey chili (ground turkey, two kinds of beans), and corn bread.
