For the April menu we did not have Ramen once. Aren't you proud? And for those of you who don't know me well, we hardly eat Ramen. Actually, I don't even really like it. But for menu purposes and the budget, it's an easy option and my kids love it! We never eat it more than 2-3 times a month...in case anyone was wondering.
For April (I am all done with April grocery shopping) I spent $239.28. I watched Extreme Couponing last week and now I wish I could spend even less! For May I am actually slightly increasing the food budget to $265. We have gone a few months with the food budget low and now it's time to start increasing it a little...I need a little break I guess!
I have my May menu done. Here is the first week:
Sunday: Rice & milk
Monday: Creamy mashed potatoes, corn, brownies/cookies for FHE dessert
Tuesday: Pancakes, applesauce
Wednesday: Noodles with white sauce,broccoli
Thursday: Rice with chicken gravy, peas
Friday: Homemade Pizza
Saturday: Box mac-n-cheese, corn
Happy shopping and budgeting everyone!
