It’s week 3 of #RedPhoenixSNAP and we have $8.01 remaining in our budget for the rest of January (gasp!). Because I am committing to the Snap Challenge for longer than the one week stated in the guidelines, we will shop from the freezer and pantry for dinner. The budget is getting tight!
A number of things happened last week that affected our menu this week:
I will still use my general weekly theme to create my plan. We are having Meatballs with Cranberry Sauce on Sunday. And because I still have all the ingredients, the Sweet Potato Avocado Tacos will be on the menu again this week.
Sunday: Swedish Meatballs, Mashed Potatoes, Cranberry Sauce, Green Beans
Monday: Salad with Cheese and Fresh Veggies, Pizza Party Buns
Tuesday: Sweet Potato Avocado Tacos
Wednesday: Pancakes with Bacon and Eggs
Thursday: Hubby works late so I’m having leftover Sweet Potato Avocado Tacos
Friday: Hubby works late so I’m having leftover Swedish Meatballs
Saturday: Family Birthday Party
*** Incidentally, I had a doctor appointment this past week. When I told her of the SNAP Challenge, she looked at me very seriously. Then she said, “You will not be able to eat very healthily on the SNAP Challenge.” To which I replied, “That is the challenge, is it not?”
Note: I use a simple menu planner system that I found on Pinterest. Follow my Pinterest Cooking Through The Seasons board for a link to this one. You may even find a few others that you like.
