Menu Plan Monday 2/3
This is more of a menu re-cap of the last week, as I have found lately that we eat off the menu list but never on the days I plan to. I also am trying to keep track of the cost per meal in order to help cut the food budget yet still serve favorites.
Sunday - Star pasta aka Pastina cooked with carrots, chicken, diced onion and chicken broth served with green salad
Price for dinner - 6.25 or 1.04 per serving ( 6 people)
Monday- 3- Cheese Lasagna made with homemade noodles ( way easier than I ever thought and so yummy)
Price for dinner - 30.25 to make 3 Lasagnas one to eat two to freeze. Each Lasagna was 10.08 to make or 1.26 per serving ( 8 people)
Tuesday- Hot turkey sandwich w/ rice and peas, fresh veggies
Price for Dinner- 8.50 or 1.41 per serving ( 6 people)
Wednesday- Hot dogs, fresh veggies, mac and cheese
Price for Dinner- 8.00 or 1.33 per person ( 6 people)
Thursday - A little bit of this a little bit of that otherwise known as Leftover Day
Price for Dinner - zero as it was leftovers from other nights.
Friday- Pizza Night w/ fresh veggies, the one night I don't cook as my 17 year old son is the master pizza chef around here
Price for Dinner- 12.50 for 3 large pizza's or 1.38 per person ( 9 people)
Saturday- Sub sandwiches for lunch and since the older kids were gone for dinner, leftover pizza for the rest of us.
Price for Dinner- 15.00 or 2.14 per person
So the average cost of dinner for the week per person was 1.38 ( including milk)
Also to add per meal per person 16 cents for milk.
* The reason the number for meals flexes is sometimes adult children come home to eat and some things my pans serve 8 so we plan on having leftovers.*
