Menu Planning on $75
Week of January 22, 2018.

Monday, January 22, 2018 AnnMarie Brown 0 Comments

In order to save both time and money I am trying to cooking one meal and make it into two meals. We will eat the meal twice in the same week but with a bit of a variation. Tuesday I made Chili and then later in the week I will make either Chili Mac or Chili Fries. Make one meal and make it work for two meals. 

We will be eating out on the road on Saturday because my daughter has a cheer competition. We will pack a lunch but we will eat on the way home since the competition is two hours away and goes until just after 5pm.

Meals this week:

Instant Pot Spaghetti & Meatballs
Instant Pot Chili
Chili Mac
Garden Vegetable Soup
Instant Pot Macaroni and Cheese
Chili Fries & Salad
At Cheer Competition


Our lunches usually consist of dinner leftovers. 
If we do not have leftovers we usually opt for a salad which we always have on hand to make.
