MEAL PLANNING

Weekly Meal Plan: July 8th-14th

It has been a crazy week here in Moncton! So many things have been going on, namely the heatwave that hit us hard. We had little to no motivation to cook food. But on the bright side we ended up having family visiting us all week so we got to spend lots of time with them, sharing great meals together.

For this week’s meal plan we will be using most of last week’s meals since we still have all the ingredients. There were two ingredients that I hadn’t purchased when I knew we wouldn’t be eating at home, so you’ll see those on this week’s grocery list.

Meals

  • Fish Tacos
  • Fried Rice & Stir Fry
  • Fettuccine Alfredo
  • Tex Mex Casserole
  • Miso Soup
  • Stuffed Potatoes
  • Macaroni Casserole

Ingredients

  • Tilapia Fish
  • Tortillas
  • Cabbage
  • Carrot
  • Miracle Whip
  • Bread Crumbs
  • Onion Powder
  • Garlic Powder
  • Cumin
  • Paprika
  • Black Pepper
  • Rice
  • Sweet Potato
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Soya Sauce
  • Rice Vinegar
  • Sriracha
  • Frozen Peas
  • Stir Fry Vegetables
  • Fettuccine Pasta
  • Mushrooms
  • Cream Cheese
  • Butter
  • Milk
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Chili Powder
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Coriander
  • Red Onion
  • Orange Pepper
  • Red Pepper
  • Corn
  • Diced Tomatoes
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Black Beans
  • Cheese
  • Tortilla Chips
  • Ginger
  • Vegetable Broth
  • Udon or Instant Noodles

Grocery

  • Miracle Whip – $3.69 each @ Costco
  • Bread Crumbs – $2.79 @ Superstore
  • Orange Pepper – $1.80 @ Tomavo
  • Cheese – $11.99 @ Costco
  • Snow Peas – $1.09 @ Tomavo
  • Bananas – $1.22 @ Tomavo
  • Sandwich Meat for Max – $13.99 at Costco
  • Drumsticks – $13.69 @ Costco (our treat of the week – much needed ice cream!)
  • Watermelon – $3.99 @ Costco
  • Sparkling Juice – $6.99 @ Costco
  • Cherries – $8.99 @ Costco
  • Bread – $3.75 @ Nana’s Bakery

The total amount we spent on groceries comes to $77.97. Given that we bought lots of snacks (including a big box of ice cream treats), I think that we did really well on budgeting for our meal plan. Our usual weekly budget is $100 on groceries, although $13.99 of this week’s groceries were for Max only as I don’t eat meat.

What meals are you planning for next week? I’m guessing lots of folks are opting for BBQ friendly meals this time of year. If that is the case, you should head over to my friend Jenna’s blog on There’s a Shoe For That where she shares a BBQ recipe round up of Maritime Bloggers!
