$125/week Grocery Challenge: Week 2 Wrap Up

I'm running a couple of days behind, but here's what we ate during week 2 of the $125/week for a family of five challenge:

Breakfasts: homemade oatmeal muffins, pancakes, or cereal and fruit.

Lunch: Grilled cheese or peanut butter & honey (or jelly) sandwiches, served with grapes, apples or carrots. One day, it was pure junk food. B2 had a cavity taken care of late last week, and really wanted ABCs & 123s w/meatballs for lunch. Since he couldn't feel one side of his mouth, I indulged the desire for comfort food.

Snacks: Nuts, cheese crackers, grapes at home - granola bars or peanut butter pretzels and apples at the pool.

Dinners: (Where two separate meals were fixed, I've specified the kid/adult version)

Burgers (Bean for me, Beef for everyone else), Roasted Potatoes, Salad

Baked Chicken, Broccoli, Cornbread (Kid)
Shakshuka, Cornbread (Adult)

Teriyaki Chicken Skewers, Rice, Green Beans; with Mango/Avocado Salad (Adult)

Brown Rice Penne with Zucchini, Vidalia, Spinach, Garlic, Grape Tomatoes and Turkey Sausage (made using gr. turkey not turned into burgers last week)

Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, Veggie Baked Beans, Apples (Kid)
Leftover Pasta and a Salad (Adult)

BBQ Chicken (Kids) Grilled Salmon (Adult), Couscous, Corn, Cucumber/Onion/Tomato Salad

Pho Bo (Vietnamese Beef Noodle Soup) w/ Garlic & Basil Meatballs (made a double batch - half the meatballs were popped in freezer for later), Salad
