While I could pull the college kid eating habits out and eat ramen noodles 7 days a week; I'm slightly spoiled to great cooking, and fear I would not be able to stomach that for too long. Therefore, I've put together a cheap seven day meal plan... with the help of a few of my mother-in-law's great ideas. :)
Sunday- Roast Beef in the slow cooker ($15)
Monday- Red Beans and Rice ($6)
Tuesday- Homemade Spaghetti (about $9)
-Mix the red beans with spaghetti, add a little chili powder, and whalaa!
Thursday- BBQ Beef Po Boys ($4)
-Cut the remaining roast beef and place in a sauce pan with BBQ sauce. Toast french bread in the oven with butter, garlic powder, and provolone cheese. Place BBQ beef on toasted french bread, and enjoy a southern style po boy!
Friday- Homemade Meat, Cheese, and Spinach Lasagna (12$)
-Use the leftover spaghetti as your meat sauce, make a cheese mixture with egg, parmesan, mozzarella, ricotta, and Italian seasoning. Layer with meat sauce, no boil lasagna noodles, spinach, and cheese mixture. Repeat, and top with one more layer of meat sauce and a cheese sprinkle.
Saturday- Enjoy a smorgasbord of leftovers and relax! :)
If my calculations are correct... you officially have a whole weeks worth of yummy food for about 46$. Which means, your hubby will be so happy you may be able to talk him into a 5$ movie rental! :)
