Here we are at the end of April already. Crazy!!! I found some great deals at the store this month. I found a lot of produce on clearance that I froze, quinoa, eggs, brown rice and nuts at great prices. I found these deals fairly early in the month so I went through my grocery money faster than normal. I also placed a bulk order through Zaycon Foods for their chicken breasts. It's a $1.69/# right now! Because of that I'm not going to the store this week so my meal plan consists of things that I already had on hand in my pantry, fridge and freezer. I'm also including a few more meatless meals this week.
