Weekly grocery and menu plan!

It's been a while since I did one of these...This is because I've once again been lax about planning my menus! I went to Sams club for my shopping trip, and I spent $85 for two weeks. This is unfortunately $5 over budget.:( It's okay, though, because I bought lots of fruits and vegetables for juicing! Here's what we're eating for dinner this week:

Carrot apple cucumber juice
Cottage cheese plate with pineapple, tomatoes, and cucumbers
Garlic bread rolls

Homemade corn chips
Carrot sticks

Orange carrot juice
Chicken salad sandwiches
Cucumber salad

Apple celery juice
Roasted potatoes, zucchini, bell peppers

Spaghetti with meatballs
Garlic bread rolls
Cucumber salad

Orange carrot juice
Chicken salad sandwiches on homemade rolls
Oven fries
Apple slices

Chicken and vegetable soup with barley
Bran rolls

For breakfast and lunch, we will be having cereal, leftovers, eggs, grits, homemade bread, and smoothies!

I'm still working on that $25 menu.:P Someday it will be done to my satisfaction. I'm taking so much time on it, because my hope is that it could actually be a valuable tool to help a family in trouble.

I haven't been writing as many blogs recently, because I've been doing a lot of gardening! I'm really excited about growing a garden this year. I've planted zucchini, corn, tomatoes, pumpkins, watermelons, cantaloupes, peas, and cucumbers. If any of my readers are successful gardeners in the South, please post your best gardening tips here!

Do you have beans very often? They are wholesome, healthy, and inexpensive. Any good recipes for beans?
