Meal Planning Monday

Week of October 18th to 24th

I have been looking up new recipes on 5$ dollar Dinners. I love this concept of only spending $5.00 on a dinner meal. I mean when you are on a tight budget $5.00 gives it a wow factor. Not only am I going to try some of the meals but I am also going to try and see if I can do a meal for my family for that magic number of $5.00. Here is what we have planned.

Arlea's One Pot Chicken Dinner


Spaghetti Meat sauce with garden fresh veggies

Meatball Sandwiches (I think I can do this one for $5.00)

Grilled Chicken Salad (I should be able to pull this one off for $5.00)

Chicken Pasta Primavera- $5 Dinner Challenge


Taco Chili and Corn Bread

Teriyaki Brown Rice Bowls

Will keep you posted on the cost of these other meals.

It's raining and cool here, so that taco chili and cornbread sounds good right about now! Good luck with the experiment! I remember when I had three kids at home and was on a pretty tight budget....I look back now and wonder how I managed to feed the entire family on less than I spend for just two now!
