What's cooking this week?

I'm on week two of trying to post my weekly menu. I hope you are enjoying it. It is really motivating me to stay on track.
This week I'm trying to start cutting back on sugars and fats. I know, this is the wrong time of year to be thinking of that! I figured, if I can do it till Thanksgiving...well, we will see how it goes.
I had more trouble this week trying to think of things that were lower in fat. It amazing how things add up over the course of a week! Any suggestions for the following weeks would be appreciated!

Here it is...
Breakfasts include fruit smoothies, turkey sausage, egg white omelets, and fruit
Monday--out to eat...last day to splurge...and because I didn't get to the store until after noon today!
Tuesday--Pf Changs Lettuce Wraps $4.50
Wednesday--Crock Pot-Chicken Surprise with brown rice and asparagus $4.75
Thursday--BBQ Chicken on baked potatoes, broccoli $3.75
Friday--Spaghetti Squash with tomato sauce and zucchini $4.75

  1. Hey Robin, new here. The first 6 months of this year I challenged myself to stay on a budget of less than $100 for a weeks worth of groceries. We have 7 people to feed. I did a pretty good job. Stop my blog for some menu ideas and recipes. Do you mind if I ask how many you are feeding for $5/dinner?

  2. We feed three with our (mostly) $5 meals. Most of the time I make enough to have the same thing for lunch the next day, so most recipes could probably feed more than three if you didn't have leftovers.
    Thanks for directing me to your blog. I always love new ideas!

  3. Just found your blog and love it! Can't wait to try some of your recipes. I'm all about health and saving money! Go girl. :)
