Weekly Meal Plan – February 25th-March 3rd

I can’t believe February is almost over already! But I’m happy, because the month of March means starting work again at the zoo, and I’m super excited to rejoin my coworkers and get back into the routine. The spring-time routine is especially great because we finish work at 4PM, which means I have lots of time to make great meals for supper. It makes meal planning a lot easier compared to working late shifts or worse, evening shifts.

This week we chose a few easier recipes because we’re finally starting to make a dent in our stockpile and we have less to work with.


  • Pasta Shells
  • Pizza
  • Pad Thai
  • Potacos
  • Tuna Casserole
  • Soup & Sandwiches
  • Date Night


  • Shells
  • Tomato Sauce
  • Cottage Cheese
  • Broccoli
  • Cheese
  • Flour
  • Yeast
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt
  • Water
  • Pizza Sauce
  • Pepperoni
  • Red Pepper
  • Onion
  • Tomato
  • Instant Noodles
  • Shrimp
  • Cabbage
  • Eggs
  • Peanut Butter
  • Soya Sauce
  • Fish Sauce
  • Catalina Dressing
  • Rice Wine Vinegar
  • Sugar
  • Sriracha
  • Potatoes
  • Salsa
  • Plain Greek Yogurt (or Sour Cream)
  • Green Onions
  • Macaroni
  • Tuna
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • Milk
  • Peas
  • Frozen soup (freezer)
  • Bread

Grocery List:

  • Pepperoni $2.47 @ Rinzler’s
  • Red Pepper $1.84 @ Tomavo
  • Tomato $0.35 @ Tomavo
  • Cabbage $2.80 @ Farmer’s Market
  • Eggs $1.88 @ Shopper’s Drugmart
  • Green Onions $1.00 @ Farmer’s Market
  • Apples (Snacks) $3.65 @ Farmer’s Market
  • Oreos* (for a video recipe, coming up soon!) $1.99 @ Shoppers Drugmart

So our total for this week is a whopping $15.98!! That’s so crazy! I was actually expecting us to need way more ingredients. But I was also lazy and added Date Night as one of the meals because honestly, I’ve just been really tired lately and I know I won’t have the energy to make supper every night next week. And I’d rather be prepared by planning a date night instead of buying groceries I won’t end up using!
