Menu for 8-24 to 8-30

Last week the menu never really got used because I was so sick and Ben was doing the cooking, so I kept the same shopping list and just repeated a lot of the meals for this week. We're just switching to an all cash budget, and I've only got about twenty dollars in the grocery envelope to spend on groceries for next week, so I did change some things around, such as making stew with some hamburger meat instead of having meatballs, in order to stretch the hamburger. and replacing one of the chicken meals with beans and rice, to save some chicken for next week too.

We did get plenty of cereal and snacks and there's meat in the freezer, so the twenty next week will be for fruits and what veggies we need and milk, so there's not really much challenge. I just wanted to be sure that there was a good mix of things each week and this week wasn't a meat every night week with next week being a beans and rice every night week. We also have a two beers left in the back of the fridge, so I'm planning that yummy no-knead bread for both weeks as a bit of a treat.

That's a really good week's menus, just the kind of meals I like to do too.
