Meal plan (Wednesday)

Better late then never right. I am not even going to lie, my meal plans are all over the place. My habits my systems are mad at the moment, so do not rely on consistency here lol.

Mon- Jambalaya. A friend gave me a rice mix and I added nuremburgers and a can of kidney beans. It was really good and I would like to try making it from scratch since I cannot get the mixes here.

Tue- Mcdonalds. I wanted a 1955 burger and they were sold out, I will not lie I enjoyed the Big mac equally as much.

Wensday- Abendbrot

Thursday- Abendbrot

Friday- Linsen (lentil) soup over spatzle (fresh egg noodles)with mixed veggies and a baguette

Saturday- Breakfast: Bratkartoffeln (fried potatoes) with onion, egg, and cubed bacon
                Lunch: Sandwiches with veggies strips
                Dinner: Asian pepper pork with rice

Sunday- Breakfast: Eierkuchen (similar to a pancake)
               Lunch: Sandwiches and fruit
               Dinner: I am using a knorr style seasoning packet for a ground beef dish with mushrooms over
                pasta, with peas and rolls
               Cake: Apple taschen (apple pockets)

My total grocery costs were 41 euro. (Some items were already on hand)

your budgeting is commendable! i am trying so hard, but unable to drop the monthly aldi bill below 300. : (

not trying hard enough, you'd probably say. what am i doing wrong? i rarely buy pre-packaged foods. i make baked chicken a lot, and spaghetti.

today the bofrost man came by to try to get us to sign up for delivered frozen foods. it was all twice as expensive as the grocery store, and the ice cream selection was totally lame. i think if you're a frozen foods provider, you need to have at least 15 of 31 flavors! geez.

i just added more water to our chicken-carcass soup, to try to stretch one more meal out of it.

i read your food plans eagerly, hoping for new ideas and possibilities for me in germany.
