$60.00 A Week Grocery Budget Challenge + Meal Plan - Week of September 5, 2016

homemade Creamy Mac & Cheese
We were lucky enough to receive a sneak-peek of fall weather the end of last week and I love it!  In my opinion, it's too short of a season.  Summer has made a return but the sneak-peek encourages me to add fall-type meals to the menu.  I mean who doesn't crave creamy chicken enchiladas smothered in sauce or chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy???

We only shopped at one store this week as we had almost everything on hand.  No stock-ups this week.  Unfortunately, I haven't even had time to peruse the sale flyers....
