Weekly Meal Plan and Shopping Trip (A little late!)

This post is a few weeks late, but here it is!  Hopefully I'll have this week's up in a more timely manner, as well as some new recipes!

Monday: Manicotti, Salad, Garlic Bread
Tuesday: BBQ Chicken Salad
Wednesday: Leftovers
Thursday: Chicken Spaghetti Casserole (I had made this a couple weeks ago and stuck half in the freezer)
Friday: Chicken Tikka Masala, rice, broccoli
Saturday: Leftovers
Sunday: Breakfast (pancakes, eggs, fruit, etc.)

You'll notice I bought a lot of veggies to use for baby food.  My baby definitely cannot eat all this in one week, but I'm preparing for an upcoming trip, so I'll be making it and freezing it.  I'll write about that process another time.

I came in about $2 over budget this week, but was under about $17 last week, so the $2 is still covered by our budget.
