Affordable meal plans

Once the kids were in bed, I made some dough for two different sourdough loaves. One plain and one with cinnamon and dried cranberries. The cinnamon recipe actually calls for raisins, but we love cranberries instead!

Rise and shine — time to bake! The very first thing I did when I woke up was get my sourdough ready for the oven. I quickly made some hardboiled eggs in my air fryer for breakfast, and then everyone was able to have a slice of bread fresh out of the oven before heading off for the day.

While the bread was baking, I packed the kids' lunch boxes with leftover chicken burritos from the night before. I added some fresh fruit and veggies on the side!

The day was spent trying to get as much physical activity in as possible and spend time outside because we were lucky to get another beautiful day. Since things were going pretty leisurely, I decided it would be a good time to prepare some yogurt to have on hand for breakfasts and snacks for the week.

My daughters love yogurt and will eat everything we have very quickly, which can be a real budget buster. So instead, I buy a small container of yogurt and some milk. Then I use the Instant Pot to heat, cool, and incubate the yogurt to make it grow into more yogurt!

While the yogurt did its magic, I started preparing dinner. It's prime time for citrus right now in my area, which means excellent sales. Simple Orange Citrus Salad was the perfect meal to make on such a sunny day, and required minimal attention so I could also multitask the yogurt.

I was worried if I told the kids the blood oranges were actually called "blood oranges" that they would stop right there. Honestly, I can't blame them.

I know if I heard "blood oranges" as a child, I would have been STRESSED. After a nice, long incubation period, I finished off the yogurt by straining it into some storage containers. We ate a bit for breakfast with some fresh raspberries.

I didn't want the leftover guacamole browning in the fridge for too long, so for dinner I chose taco potatoes.

I was also able to use the remaining cheese I had already shredded from a few nights before as well. While I baked the potatoes, I browned the meat and got all the various toppings ready. There are two things my son will not eat: rice and potatoes. Usually, I always put a bit of everything on the kid plates so that they always have an opportunity to try things, but he has been very clear for long enough that he doesn't like them so I no longer serve him those things.

I knew the yogurt needed a little crunch, so I made up a batch of my favorite homemade granola. Being a nut-allergy household, granola is really something we have a hard time buying so this recipe for vanilla granola is a slam dunk.

Greek Chicken Kebabs were on my mind for dinner. Once I pulled out all the ingredients, I decided I would roast the chicken instead of grilling it on skewers, because although we've had a few nice days, I haven't actually gotten the grill ready for prime time after being buried under snow for a few months.

I cut up some tomatoes, cucumbers, and took out some store-bought tzatziki. You can actually make your own tzatziki very easily and pretty cheap, but sometimes, you need to consider your sanity as well!

In the future, I would love to try this recipe with fresh herbs instead of dry. I recently got the cookbook Meal Prep Magic by Catherine McCord, and when I saw this rice pudding recipe, I had to give it a try!

Although the recipe I followed was from the book, there is a similar recipe here. I put everything into a storage container and placed in the fridge to set.

Once the chaos of mid-day was over, I wanted to make a quick snack. The rice pudding had me thinking of childhood treats I loved, and I remembered an at-home Orange Julius recipe we loved to make.

Stealing from another meal plan that I am combining to incorporate different ideas, hard boiled eggs for lunch is a good protein and also filling. My two three year olds even peel them by themselves.

Surprises me every time. You can pair this with a fruit and go to town. I use some to make a quiche. It is a protein, great veggie, and a dairy with calcium. You can add toast if you can afford the extra bread. Adding eggs does not increase your budget a lot and they can go very far.

This is definitely a way I would add variety. For breakfast, consider cinnamon toast a little butter and some cinnamon. Also, mine like to have yogurt and dip apples in it.

To beef up the protein content in this, I use vanilla greek yogurt that I buy by the tub. This lasts a long time. Lastly, a box of pancake mix and smash bananas up in your pancakes.

This makes them include a little something extra and even oatmeal tastes good in these if you have it from your other breakfasts. I have taught mine to like pancakes without syrup.

I cut it up into strips so they eat it with their hands that way. It was something new and different and was an easy transition away from sugary syrup. Next time I would try a different sauce or maybe salsa to help make it a little more family-friendly.

My son especially loved these and kept asking for more! He ended up eating two full-size pockets — and we still had leftovers. Keeping it real! Plus, everyone was still pretty full from the big breakfast we had, and the kids were eager to spend time at the neighborhood pool.

One oversight I made was that I didn't have a wooden skewer. I ended up using toothpicks. This strategy worked out OK, although it ended up falling over in the oven thankfully still on the baking sheet!

The recipe says to cook the chicken for 1. I automatically set my timer for 2 hours and didn't check it again.

Next time I would make sure to keep a close eye on it because at the 2-hour mark, my chicken was a bit overcooked. Going into this recipe , I was worried that the kids wouldn't like the plain cream cheese.

But to my surprise, these ended up being pretty sweet. Next time I would use less honey because the graham cracker was sweet enough by itself. Despite the snarl, these made the cut. All three kids liked these, and I was happy to help finish up any leftovers. Recipe: Strawberry Cheesecake Crackers I Shop the Recipe.

I just wanted to acknowledge this because even with the best meal prep and planning, feeding a household and keeping everything else together is still HARD. As parents, we often need to roll with the punches. And sometimes I need to remind myself to just breathe and do the best I can.

All that was required of me ahead of time was to add a can of adobo chiles, salt, and pepper into my unused chicken from the previous night. The recipe calls for the chiles to be chopped up before adding them to the chicken.

Once I tasted them, I decided to leave them whole so the chicken would pull in the flavor as it marinated — but then I could easily take the chiles out once it came time to cook the chicken.

Shop The Recipe. Once I did, I was really impressed with how close the chicken actually looked to being from one of those restaurants. Then I gave it a taste and gave myself and the recipe author a pat on the back!

The next time I make this, I would add a few more toppings. It wouldn't cost much and would have elevated the meal a little more. I added a side of peaches, and the girls insisted on some Apple Jacks as well.

My youngest ate up the remaining scrambled eggs that were extra from the egg pockets. Recipe: Fruit Parfaits I Shop The Recipe. This recipe appealed to me because it had the BBQ flavors we love in the summer, but with the comfort of a good and flaky crescent roll.

Pre-bake, I wondered if some of the filling would ooze out of the cracks or if the bottom of the ring would be soggy at all, but it wasn't! My son thought the chicken was a little too sweet, so next time I might try a BBQ sauce that leans a bit more savory.

This time, I left out the honey. Like I mentioned before, the graham cracker was sweet enough to balance out the plain cream cheese. It was also less messy of a cleanup, so I was completely on board. One note for feeding spice-adverse eaters, like I am.

The recipe calls for 2 table spoons of chili powder.

I also occasionally with add in fish since Aldi has the frozen fillets for such a reasonable price. And then I add in ground beef or ground turkey whenever I can find it cheap and the same with bacon, sausage and ham.

I need it. My husband and I plus our son Joshua were on food stamps. When we just over the income level it was hard. The thing we used to do was lots of soup and grilled cheese.

The canned soup at Aldi is cheap not the healthiest but add some canned fruit. Buy some Pancake mix we did lots of breakfast for dinner. Sending strength and hugs to you and your family. I just lost my food stamps due to a raise.

Surprises me every time.

The options I have for purchasing food are not always available to everyone, so I just thought I'd acknowledge this before giving the following strategies: - I buy my produce at either the local farmer market, or at a produce store where there are weekly sales this store actually began as a supplier for local restaurants, but they expanded and offer sale prices to the community now.

The price is better than a grocery store and I get to pick which cuts I need. I just pick those up when they are on sale for the best price I can get them for.

Some of the shopping I do just involves anticipation and picking up some things when they are on sale, knowing I will use them in a few week's time and wouldn't want to be without them or pay full price. So if you can get produce on sale and save the tax, that is very helpful.

This reduces food waste because I end up using an entire "package" or serving of each ingredient. I hate using half an onion or pepper, etc. I just use everything in a big batch. We preserve and freeze a lot of summer produce and this really helps cut costs.
