Meal Plan Update

I am getting a lot of mileage out of my first Meal Plan.
I made Tuna Casserole not from scratch
before I went shopping, cuz I was craving it so bad. Now I'm over the craving, but maybe I'll be ready for it by the time I get to the end of the meal plan.
To start things off, I cooked a massive (over 5 pounds) Pork Roast and shredded all of it. I used half for the
BBQ Pork Sandwiches and froze the other half for the burritos. We ate these for two nights, took it for lunch once and froze about half of it so we could move on to something else.

Dennis helped me with the mise en prepe (fancy french phrase for preparing all the ingredients before you start to cook) for Chili Sweet Potato Hash, which for me, is ULTRA important in this recipe. Things happen too fast if I don't have it all ready ahead of time.

We had the Smothered Sweet Pork Burrito's for dinner tonight and will be taking it for our lunch the next two days. I made a non-sweet version for Dennis, so he would know I love him and really do pay attention when he says he doesn't like something. I love the stuff and so I made mine sweet.

That's all the further I've made it. It is so nice having a meal plan! I especially love having everything I need to make the meal and not having to decide EVERY day what we are eating... I love that there is still plenty of meal plan left to take me through this next week...
Philly 20 minute Skillet Salmon
Cilantro Cream Chicken with Lime
Chicken Noodle Soup and Rolls
I am definitely going to meal plan again... should be ready to do this next week.

Did having a meal plan have any effect on your budget?

The biggest help is in having stuff to take for lunches. We are going to make some serious strides this month by not eating out for lunch 4-5 days a week.

The big plunge...
