The Tasty Green Meal Plan and Grocery List

I get excited pretty easily, I am kind of like a dog I guess. So, it should be no surprise that I am excited about this weeks meal plan. I think it is going to be a good mix of healthy and not so healthy, hearty and not so hearty.
Best part is the entire meal plan cost me under $60 this week at the grocery story and that includes breakfast, lunches, and snacks for our family.

Here is the meal plan:

Monday~ White Bean Chicken Chili and Rolls
Tuesday~ Keilbasa, Saffron Rice, and Green Beans (Blueberry muffins too)
Wednesday~ Lentil Soup and corn bread
Thursday~ Cook out chili hotdogs (Yes, I KNOW it is winter!), home made french fries, and applesauce.
Friday~ Spinach and tomato nacho cheese dip
Saturday~ Breakfast Casserole
Sunday~ Roast Pork and Rosemary Potatoes

Here is the grocery list:

Monday~ White Bean Chicken Chili and Rolls

TIP: Use chicken breast, boned, and boil it. Cut up the meat for the soup and use the broth rather than buying broth! :)
