I just ordered a ton more groceries from Peapod today! Like I mentioned in previous posts, Peapod is my all-time favorite grocery delivery service, and I frequently use it to purchase groceries in bulk – something that is almost impossible as a city dweller, like myself, with no car.
Though my bill did in fact hit the $60 mark, I should mention that I also purchased a few things that were not food items (cat food and cat litter) + some pantry/fridge restock items (bread crumbs, sugar, oats, ketchup, and vegetable oil) that many folks would not buy every single week.
For the 2-week meal plan itself, again, we’re focusing on cooking in BULK, the cost is just $45, assuming you already have some of these pantry items in your home.
Here is a detailed list of exactly what I purchased:
What meals have I planned for this grocery haul? I have 7 meals – all with at least one additional day of leftovers! Though I have only 7 meals planned, these groceries will more than likely last 10-14 days – if not more.
- Basic baked BBQ chicken
- Oven fried/or pan fried chicken tenders
- Pasta w/ meat sauce (marinara)
- Pasta w/ Italian sausage (marinara)
- Pasta w/ spinach Alfredo sauce
- Bacon cheeseburgers
Breakfasts/Brunches/Lunches will be huevos rancheros (which, by the way, is one of my all time favorite breakfast meals – it’s cheap, easy, and delicious!), black bean and cheese quesadillas/tacos/burritos/burrito bowls, bacon & eggs, breakfast sandwiches, breakfast burritos, breakfast tacos, oatmeal, cereal, and/or cereal.
All of these meals are basic/classic meals I’ve cooked several times before, and I’m sure you have too. Do you have a favorite recipe for one of these meals?
