Christina’s Dinner Menu – Week 2

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Two straight weeks of eating at home – I think this little competition is good for me!

Sunday – Veggie Lasagna (this lasagna was time consuming. It was good, but I haven’t decided if it was worth the effort to make again. Although I will definitely use the no-cook tomato sauce again – delish!) with homemade french bread and salad.

Monday – Broccoli and Cheese Soup with Biscuits

Tuesday – Quinoa and Black Beans – so quick and easy and everyone enjoyed them.

Wednesday – Sweet and Spicy Cashew Chicken (Definitely worth the effort). Served with a Thai-inspired coleslaw on the side.

Thursday – leftovers

Friday – Homemade Pizza night

Saturday – Lentil Stew

My current point tally after two weeks is also 19.
My grocery bill last week: $350
I am a little embarrassed to share my grocery bill this week, but keep in mind that I was stocking up. I bought a couple of 50 lb bags of grains and various things that I hope will last us a while! I live on an island with no Costco or Trader Joe’s, so when I travel to the other side (about once a month) the bill tends to be high :)

  1. I felt the same way about the lasagna! In my experience all lasagnas are pretty time consuming. But, they’re a favorite with my family, so I tend to make a double batch & freeze one so that I get two meals for the effort of one.

  2. I love hearing your menus – so helpful! and I appreciate you sharing your budgets, too. :) Thanks!
