 Weekly Meal Deals With The Meijer Ad #18

Sunday market March 5-11

Thursday market March 9-15

Do you have trouble planning your weekly menus?  Are you making what feels like the same meals every week?  Never fear!  We are here to help!  Each week (hopefully), we will have a great meal plan ready to go for you.

A few things to keep in mind:

Prices are based on the Sunday market sales ad

Meals are planned for a family of four- if your family is full of big eaters, you may need to buy extra

You can always adjust if you don’t like something we have planned

We are planning 5 dinners- for the last two days try using leftovers on one day, and maybe eating out on the last day.  Also, life happens, and you don’t always get to every meal.  Planning 5 meals works perfectly for my family.

Most likely, you will have some of these items in your stockpile already, so you will save even more!  This is a “from-scratch” list.

1 egg

bread crumbs/cracker crumbs/some kind of binder

brown sugar

1/2 c milk

seasoned salt



seasoning for chicken (McCormick, Webber, etc)

Chili Mac and salad

(Very important) CUT CHILI MAC RECIPE IN HALF.  Use the recipe found here.  Use ground turkey instead of ground beef.  You can buy a packet of chili seasoning, or just use chili powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper instead.  You will only need half of the shredded cheese.  You can save the other half for on top of your salads, or to add to your garlic bread (another meal). For the salad use 1/4 of the spinach, plus about 1/2 of the green leaf lettuce.  Use a few stalks of celery, some onion, and half of the cucumber.

White beans, sausage, and spinach, plus garlic bread

Use this recipe to make the white beans, sausage, and spinach.  One can of chicken broth is a smidge under 2 cups, but should still be fine.  Use this recipe for the garlic bread, using the Italian bread to make it.  If desired, add 1/2 of the bag of shredded cheese on top.  Yum!

Homemade White Castle Burgers, Macaroni Salad, and grapes.

If you don’t like White Castle, don’t worry.  This doesn’t taste exactly like it.  Regardless, they are super tasty!!! You can trim the hamburger buns down to smaller White Castle-type size, or just cut the burgers better.  My husband requested these two days in a row the first time I made them!!  Instead of onion flakes, I just sprinkled diced onion on the bottom of the pan.  The cheese slices are for your burgers- recipe can be found here.  Boil an entire 1 lb box of elbow noodles and drain.  Add a few stalks of diced celery, diced onion, salt and pepper, mayonnaise, and a squirt of yellow mustard. Easy macaroni salad!!   And much less gloppy than store-bought.

Chicken Legs, Macaroni Salad, and Apple slices.

Sprinkle your favorite seasoning for chicken on the chicken legs.  If you don’t have any special blends, use garlic powder, onion powder, and oregano.  Grill chicken.  While it is grilling slice up the apples.  Serve with leftover macaroni salad (since you made a lot!)

Meatloaf, Rice, and Salad

Use this recipe to make the meatloaf.  You can use any type of binder- bread crumbs, old crackers crushed up, etc.  While it is baking prepare your Rice A Roni according to package directions.  Use the rest of your salad ingredients here- lettuce, celery, onion, and cucumber.  If you have leftover shredded cheese sprinkle on top of your salad.

**You will have one leftover box of pasta- save for next week!!!
