A good thing about this meal plan is that much of what you will purchase at the grocery will be used for several meals. This entire meal plan, plus our breakfasts and dinners was $50. The fresh vegetables raises the cost a bit, but we feel that it is well worth it.
This week I will be making the rolls, pizza dough, and bread without a bread machine to share how to do this using a mixer and good old fashioned elbow grease!
