Weekly Menu and a Review

I Love Sloppy Joe's!

I know, it's Thursday but Im back from vacation and went to the grocery yesterday. So, Im going to post all of my meals for the next week or so.

But first Im going to tell you about my favorite (and H's) meal. It's sloppy Joe's. It's so good, easy and cheap to make :) Now, I dont buy that Manwich, to me it doesn't have a good flavor and it's much more expensive than what I buy! I buy Del Monte Sloppy Joe sauce. It has a pop top can, claims to be better than manwich- and it is! This is a very satisfying and yummy meal. If you want to sneak some more veggies in, you can add chopped bell peppers (my fave) or shredded carrots or zucchini. Now, let me break down the price for you, for this meal:

Lean ground beef, 1lb: $3.86
Package of whole wheat HFCS free hamburger buns: $2.42
Frozen potato wedges (in the deep freeze at home, I buy in bulk at Sam's)
Frozen steamfresh veggies: (also in the deep freeze, but you can buy them at $1 each).
1 Can Del Monte Sloppy Joe Sauce (it was in my pantry, but about $1 at Walmart)
Grand total for this meal (which serves as dinner and lunch the next day):

$6.28 is what I spent for this meal at the grocery.
It roughly cost me $9 total to include the items I already had at home. $9?!!! And that's for 2 meals for H & I :)

Here's what's on the menu at our house for the next week or so:

Sloppy Joe's, baked potato wedges, corn & green beans
Crock-pot Salsa Chicken over rice
Taco Salads
Hawaiian Chicken, rice, grilled veggies
Greek Turkey burgers, spinach salad
Pulled pork sandwiches, sweet potato fries
Grilled Chicken Caesar Salads
Cheeseburgers, baked potato wedges, baked beans
