Menu Plan Monday

It's Monday morning and it is hectic as all get out! I have my Praxis in about an hour. It's my fifth one...and FINAL I hope I pass. I have groceries to get, of course. And 4 more papers to write this week. Ouch. I will update as soon as I can...I don't think I updated last week's MPM yet, so I'll try and do that one too. This week I added an "additional items" section because I typically will get milk, creamer, lunch food for me, cereal, snack foods, etc. and I don't see those as unnecessary purchases just because they aren't planned recipes.

Sausage & Pea Pasta
shell pasta, 1 lb. pork sausage, frozen sweet peas, pesto*

Banana Bread Donuts // Sticky Lemon Oregano Chicken with green beans and salad
3 bananas // chicken, 2 lemons, green beans, salad mix

The Best Beef Stew
2 lb. stew meat, 2 lb. red potatoes, carrots* 1 can green beans, 1 can corn, 1 can peas, 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes, 28 oz. can peeled plum tomatoes, beef bouillon*

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal // Creamy Chicken Quinoa Broccoli Casserole
2 bananas, oatmeal*, peanut butter* // chicken, bacon bits, broccoli?, pepper jack cheese

frozen bread dough, Italian sausage, mozzarella cheese, pizza sauce, pepperoni

Sweet Zucchini Pancakes // Pork & Ramen Stir Fry
Greek yogurt, 2 eggs, 2 zucchini // pork loin chops, broccoli florets, coleslaw mix, 2 pkg ramen


Pizza Hut Cheese Bread // Almond Joy Frappe // Salted Mudslide Cookies
nonfat dry milk, flour?, mozzarella cheese // coconut milk // 2 eggs, Kahlua*, chocolate chunks

Additional grocery items: milk, creamer, lunch meat, yogurt, salad/salad mix, croutons, caesar dressing, cereal.

Total: $146.05
I did get a few things more because they FINALLY have cucumber ranch!! It's my favorite for snacking with baby carrots :) I also got a little B&J's ice cream, baby carrots, and 2 bags of granola. Without my extra snack foods, my total would have been $132.79 - so overall not bad at all. I stayed within the limits of my weekly grocery budget :)
