Okay, So I started this month with the goal of eating out of our pantry, but I didn't realize we were somewhat low on chicken...so, I upped my budget to $100 this month. Since Meijer has chicken $1.79/lb I felt like i should take advantage.
This is going to be an interesting and creative month for me. First we are eating from our pantry. Second, Dan and I both started weight watchers today. Third, I am cutting out all red dye from my kids. I'm finding that this hasn't been too hard since I cook a lot. The big thing that it is in for us is fruit snacks. So, my menu plan has a lot of factor competing against each other.
The dinners are what I focus on. The other meals are merely suggestions. :)
