Week of February 5, 2018.

Monday, February 05, 2018 AnnMarie Brown 0 Comments

I am sick of making the same old, same old. I really need to mix our dinner menu plan. This usually happens as the Canadian winter to get old and it seems like our grill is buried under a couple of feet of snow.

This week I plan to do a cold meal just to change things up. Make a few salads and maybe just have cold cuts that I got from my parents fridge since they were leaving for Florida last week.

$75 for a family a week

Meals this week:

Instant Pot Turkey Pot Pie Crustless
Potato Salad, Macaroni Salad, Cold Cuts
Sloppy Joes with Homemade Buns and Salad
Garden Vegetable Soup
Chicken Fajitas, Mexican Rice, Beans
Hamburger Stew in Bread Bowls


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.
