Here is what we had this week for dinner within our $70 budget!
And I spent a total of: about $58 (the other $12 will be put away to go towards my bulk meat buy)
Monday: Paprika Chicken served with Polenta (with potato, onion, garlic, pumpkin, eggplant, mushroom, silverbeet, carrot, tomato and parsley)- This meal had leftovers for lunches
Tuesday: Cottage Pie (using left over bolognese from the week before but adding some peas and carrots and potato)- This meal had leftovers for lunches
Wednesday: Beef Stew with brown rice (using oyster blade steak, onion, carrot, musroom, tomato, eggplant and homemade vege stock)- This meal had leftovers for lunches
Thursday: Vegetable Dahl with Roast Potatoes – This meal had leftovers for lunches
Friday: Make your own pizza (we had guests over and our guests brought many of these ingredients with us providing some pizza bases, rocket and drinks)
Saturday: Roast Chook with salad and potatoes (this was meal for four plus our toddler and included some left overs)
Sunday: An assortment of leftovers!
*I also had to fit in my budget providing morning tea for about 30 at Mainly Music, including pumpkin scones, lemon slice and fruit.
