Family Meals on a Budget Week 5

Family Meals on a Budget Week 5

Afternoon Lovelies! The kids are working in their math workbooks, so I was able to hop on here and write out all of our meals from last week. Last week was crazy. It was busy, and messy, and a lot of fun too. With that in mind, most of this week's recipes are super simple (just how this mama likes it).

There's no recipe list this week, as most of these meals recipes already are on the blog. Follow the links for each meal to fin the recipe:) 


Sunday 2/1/15- Leftovers

Sundays are a day always teeter between a nice family meal in the crockpot or us feasting on leftovers. It really just depends on what is in the fridge and if I was able to snag  a pork roast for a great price when shopping. To me nothing taste better than a slow cooked pork roast. Yum! Last Sunday though, I did not have a pork roast, so we decided to clean out our fridge and eat up our leftovers. We pulled everything out, filled our plates, and watched a movie together. It was a nice relaxing night off for this mama. I love leftover nights! 

Monday 2/2/15- Cheese Quesdillas with fruit and sliced green bell peppers

On Monday I had something else planned, but lets just say the littles arguing, a pile of laundry to be done, and everything else in between had my mama sanity at an all time low. When this happens, I try to go for a fall back. Quesdillas is a fall back for me. I typically always have shredded cheese and tortillas in my fridge. Having these on hand, allow me to pull something together quickly when dinner plans go wonky.

Tuesday 2/3/15- BBQ Hamburgers with chips and fruit

After Monday's fiasco and drama, I really wanted to make something yummy for dinner. I went with BBQ Hamburgers. This is probably one of my favorite comfort foods lately. It only takes a few ingredients and is oh so yummy! I love that you can toss in extra veggies like mushrooms and celery to up the nutrition fact. 

Wednesday 2/4/15- Mini Pita Pocket Pizzas with cucumbers and humus

I shared this recipe earlier in the week on my recipe blog. We loved it so much for lunch we decided to have it for dinner another night. It is another quick and easy meal you can throw together in a matter of minutes. Don't we all love quick recipes like that?

Thursday 2/5/15- Tofu Stir Fry

I like to buy a pack of tofu from Costco each month. Tofu is easy to replace meat in many of your favorite dishes. We especially like it in stir fry. For this simple dinner, I used 2 bags of stir fry veggies (frozen), 1 cube of firm tofu, and sweet and sour sauce. Three ingredients and you are good to go! We like to serve our stir fry over rice. Very filling!

If you are ever tight on money, serving your family a pantry staple like rice will keep tummies full and costs down. We buy our rice from Costco. We love their brown rice! 

Friday 2/6/15- Pizza Night

Saturday 2/7/15- Deli Sandwiches with chips and sliced apples

On Saturday I was spending a lot of time canning potatoes. By the time I was done and my kitchen was cleaned up, it had gotten late....ok real late. I decided to make it a movie night. We all had deli sandwiches with chips and fruit. It was another easy night, which was a great end to this busy week.

Oh and in case you missed it...here is our Bountiful Basket Haul from Saturday.

16 potatoes, 1 asparagus bunch, 1 head of green cauliflower, 3 zucchini, 2 cucumbers, 6 tomatoes, 1 butternut squash, 4 pears, 4 apples, 4 kiwi, 3 lemon, and 5 oranges -- all for $15 

I can't wait to share all the yummy recipes I plan to make:)
