Even though the week is half over, we still have to do grocery shopping - Meal Planning June 6th - 12th

This past weekend we have actually been out of town.  This time of the year we have two special events we celebrate, Jon and mine's anniversary and Michael's birthday.  The list of meals for the week is rather small because of that.  Here's
the plans for meals for the  remainder of the week:
  1. Tacos
  2. Chicken Nuggets
  3. Meatloaf
Yep, we were gone Friday - Monday!  I'll be writing several posts about the events from the weekend later this week.  So, stay tuned for that!

My mom is also in for the week and she had requested that I make some of the meals that I've been writing about.  Tuesday morning, we decided on the meal plan and then headed to Wegmans to get what we needed for those meals.  Here's the grocery list and the prices for each item:
  • gallon of whole milk  $3.49
  • OJ  $2.49
  • family pack of chicken breasts*  $10.98
  • Kraft American cheese slices  $3.99
  • family pack of ground beef*  $16.74
  • onions*  $1.49
  • tomato sauce*  $0.99 x 2 = $1.98
  • taco shells  $0.99 x 2 = $1.98
  • shredded lettuce
  • sour cream  $1.19
  • shredded taco style cheese  $2.79
  • French fried onions  $3.29
  • peach tea*  $1.69
  • strawberries*  on sale for $3.99 normally $8.99
  • tomato*  $1.05
My mom said that she would pay for the meat and the items for the meatloaf, all those items have a * beside them.  As you can see, we added on a few items (items in green) and didn't get shredded lettuce.  My budget for this week was $50 and I only spent $19.70.  That left me $30.30 to use towards Father's Day cards and the remainder will go into next week's grocery trip.  My mom spent $38.87 which made the grand total $58.57.  So, if I had paid for everything and my mom was not here we probably would have been under or just at our budget.  Leaving no money for Father's Day cards.  I also earned $0.25 for my gallon of milk purchase through Ibotta.  Stay tuned for a post about the meatloaf my mom's making!
