Weekly Meal Plan: September 2nd-8th

September is officially here so that means we have to get back on track with our meal plan. No more making things because it’s easier or because it’s “too hot to use the oven.” (Max’s excuse, not mine…) This week’s meal plan will consist of 6 delicious recipes and one special outing. The reason we are able to plan this night out in advance is because this coming Thursday just so happens to be our 3 year anniversary! We will be celebrating this monumental occasion by going out to Calactus, one of our favourite restaurants in Moncton.

If you’ve ever been to Calactus, whether you’re local or from away, please let us know what your favourite meal is and why so we can try something new!

It’s wonderful to have such a short grocery list! Honestly, we have so much food in the house, it’s about time we picked some meals wherein we already had all the ingredients. Our allotted budget is usually a maximum of $100 per week, however we definitely went under budget this week. It just goes to show that meal planning really can save you a LOT of money.
