M- Shredded beef on tortillas, beans and rice (This is using leftovers from the fridge.)
T- Beef tips, mashed potatoes, green beans, bread
W- BBQ ribs, mac & cheese, cucumber slices, biscuits
Th- Spaghetti Pie & garlic bread
F- French toast, bacon & eggs
S- Bertolli ravioli (& leftover spaghetti pie, in case it's yucky)
S- Tacos, black beans, corn
This is our grocery list. This includes breakfast and lunches.
I'm also going to buy a couple of punds of Laura's Lean Beef if it's on sale at my Target. I'm down to one pound in the freezer. Hopefully Homeland will put their's on sale soon!! I'll update with a total when I return.
Edit: I spent $46 at Target. The beef was not on sale and they were out of razors. I ended up adding some things to the list like snacks for Peyton's class on Thursday, coffee filters, and vegetable oil. I also had to get children's tylenol. These extras added up quick, but I still came in under budget for the week.

"I see my kite, Daddy!"

Peyton and the baby T-Rex
Peyton, Maddy and our neighbor on the turtle sculpture.
The life size T-rex. It is animitronic and loud! Peyton screamed when she saw it.

approximately a 2 lb. chuck roast= 4.00 (a 1.7 lb roast fed 3 hungry adults w/ leftovers)
2 lbs potatoes= .52
1 onion .50
baby carrots (1/2 bag) .75
I use this recipe. It's so easy!
I don't use the celery. I just don't like the taste with roast. And instead of bouillon I just use 1 c. water and pot roast seasoning. You can use a packet or just find things in your spice rack. (salt, pepper, & steak seasoning is what I used last night- yum)

First, the girls jumped on the trampoline in the warm morning sun.
Sire the dog. He's wondering why these girls are in HIS backyard.
Maddy in mid toe touch.
After lunch, we hit the dollar movies. Tuesday is half price day so tickets are .50 before 6pm.
Finally, we hit the park again while we waited for the crockpot to finish dinner.
Heading home. Ready for another fun day.
Total cost for the day: 1.50 movie tickets, 3.75 popcorn= $5.25

After shopping for our supplies, the girls made aprons for our baking day. I helped Peyton and baked the cake while the big girls finished their aprons.
Then we had lunch. Crust-less grilled cheese, chips and fruit. On leftover birthday plates. Because I'm cool like that.
Then we were off to the "big" park that we pass in our neighborhood. Everytime we drive by Peyton asks if we can play there. I usually say no but not on Spring Break! And we stayed until they were tired of playing. Because I am also cool like THAT.
For Mommy! I love FREE magazine subscriptions!
After playing at the park, we came home to make Cupcake Pops. Ours didn't turn out as cute as Bakerella's but we had fun trying.
So there is our Day 1 of Spring Break. Total for all this fun?
2.99 x 2= aprons
.99 x 3= paint
.88= cake mix
2.00= almond bark
