I'm doing all my meal-planning for the whole month of November in advance. I have been failing miserably at staying within our grocery budget, and I want to try & fix that. I only need about 15 big dinners as we always eat leftovers 1 or 2 nights after. Also, I eat leftovers, banana & PB sandwiches, and green smoothies for lunch. Breakfast is usually eggs & toast, cereal or raw oats & coconut milk yogurt. This meal plan also relies on us getting a cheap turkey, as we were able to do last November.
My plan is to take a fixed amount of cash out of the bank each week and spend it on groceries. When it's gone, it's gone. We have plenty of flour for making bread, as well as rice and beans if we get desperate.
OK, here are my meals:
All freezer leftovers need to be eaten (the freezer is overfull)
Crockpot Coconut Chickpea Curry
Lentil Lemon Soup
Burgers & Fries
Whole Chicken with Rice & Veggies
Veggie Soup with Barley
Chicken Parts (whatever is on sale) with Sweet Potatoes & Apples
Red Lentil Soup
Whole Turkey, Potatoes & Salad w/Raw Vegan "Caesar" Dressing
Rice & Beans
Turkey Sandwiches w/"Caesar" Salad
Let me know if you want any of these recipes, though I'm sure I'll share some of them as the months go on.
Anyone else want to share their meal plans?
