Weekly Meal Plan: May 13th-19th

Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and although my mom isn’t in town yet, she will be visiting us for three days next week. This means that our meal plan will be a bit more up in the air than usual. But not to worry, we’re still going to plan it out and enjoy spending time with family as much as possible!

Grocery Budget

Before I list off all our meals for this week, I’m curious. What do you guys do to celebrate Mother’s Day? Do you cook a meal at home? Or do you typically go out for this special occasion? Let us know in the comments!

We didn’t have time to finish our grocery shopping for next week yet, and we also want to wait a little later on to buy fresher veggies since we’ll be eating out at the beginning of the week. Therefor, we don’t have a grand total for what we spent on groceries. I will however mention that it will obviously be a lot less than usual given the fact that we’re eating out twice (maybe more if my mom wants to). And also we have a lot of the ingredients needed for most of the other meals.

It’s going to be a great week, we’re really looking forward to spending time with family and eating good hearty food together.
