$140 of groceries at Publix for 12 meals (~$11.00 a meal)

Thanks to Graciously Saved for the recipes! I did a little bit of manipulation of things myself. Mostly, the previous meals that we made rendered just way too much food. So, with every meal requiring chicken breasts, I would only include 2, as that’s really all that Mike and I can eat and STILL have left overs. At the bottom of this page, I will include a shopping list. Why when there’s already one on her website? Because…if you took hers to the grocery store with you…you’ll come home really upset! She left out a LOT! Also, I will only be including the amount of chicken that I used with my meals on the shopping list…Feeding more? Add more to it per recipe. :)

Honey Sesame Chicken

This meal was super yummy! Mike and I ate it with two cups of white minute rice which was included in the groceries for all these meals. Ate as much as I could, which wasn’t a lot because Im also going through a detox which includes cinnamon, curbing appetite. With lots left over, and having made the appropriate amount of rice for all the chicken and juices, I shared the left overs at work. I have this review from my co-worker Jessica to share with you

“I smiled with every bite because it’s deliciousness made me happy.”

Thai Chicken and Peanut Sauce

We used drumlettes for this and it was super yums! I love how the crock pot allows for all the meats to just fall apart or off their bones. We made way too much rice to go with it and given the chance, I would use more meat in it because the sauce was delicious! Hard to believe it’s just a little bit of peanut butter in it lol.

Teriyaki Chicken

No where near as good as the Sesame Chicken.

Italian Sausage with Peppers & Onions

This was alright, but the previous Sausage and Peppers was better

Beef Stew

Not the best Beef stew I’ve ever had…bleh

SW Flank Steak

We waited until cooked to try to cut the steak into strips, but at that point, you have to just shred everything instead of being able to cut it.

White Chicken Chili

Honestly, I don’t even remember eating this meal…That’s bad, huh?

Spinach and Salsa Chicken

Not a fan…holy crap, way too many mexican meals in this batch!

Mexican Fiesta Chicken

Too many salsa and chicken meals…they all blended together to taste pretty much like the same things.

Cheeseburger Soup

One thing I definitely recommend with this meal is to add the flour into the crockpot in small amounts. Sometimes I do things a bit hap-hazardly because Im tired after a long day at work and I just poured it all in at once. I had to do some major whisking! We had a couple bowls with some crescent rolls. Mike had like THREE BOWLS!

Southwest Chicken

Delicious and Creamy…Mike at his with noodles and cheese. I had mine by itself and it was delicious by itself. One of the better meals so far

Taco Chili

Not really Chili at all…bleh

 

Making my own list for March…A bunch of all yummies with some new ones! Stay tuned!
