My wife has budgeted $350 for two weeks. Considering we've been trying to squeeze in under $250, I'm kind of thrilled. So, I'm going through the weekly flyers from the local grocery stores, trying to find the best possible deals. All two grocery stores... not much variety here. I'm also unwilling to shop in Walmart.
So... fun times! We've been in a food rut for the last few months, not much in the way of variety. Lots of peanut chicken, taco bakes, meatloafs and meatballs. There's got to be something else, something MORE... what that is, I don't know. What I do know is that I need to prepare 14 meals, and I need to spend no more than about $15 per meal. I also need to produce enough leftovers for me to have something to eat for a second meal of the day. At this point, we do not have the money for both of us to eat three meals a day, so I eat pure righteous for breakfast... and my wife eats Fiber One.
So... what to eat, what to cook? I don't know... really, I don't! I know we're having brats and sauerkraut at least twice in the next two weeks. That's pretty cheap(buy one get one free brats!), which frees up cash for something else. I might roast a chicken or something. Beyond that I'm sort of at a loss. I mean, I can think of fancy meals. I just can't afford them!
