Week 21 Budget and Menu

We are gearing up for another exciting, busy week. Softball season is keeping us hopping and we are enjoying every second of it! Our menu this week reflects not only our need for quick dinners, but also our celebration of Memorial Day! We haven’t had beef on our menu in a long time and we are going to enjoy every bite of these grilled hamburgers!

  1. This is important: HOW MUCH does your grass fed beef run a pound? We usually pay $6/lb, which I think is pretty good, especially since it’s only once a month or so (except I ALWAYS have to buy 2 pounds because these guys eat too much). BUT. I tried to buy a whole roaster chicken at the farmer’s market here and they wanted about $6/lb which makes a 3 lb chicken $18. And… NO.
