I love a great challenge so when Harris Teeter challenged me to create a 5 day meal plan where each meal costs $10, of course I had to do it.
I’ll be the first to admit that grocery shopping isn’t my favorite thing to do so I like to make my shopping trips quick and keep my shopping list short. One thing I put on our weekly grocery list is a rotisserie chicken. It can be used for so many recipes throughout the week. This week I used one rotisserie chicken for two dinners.
Monday – Chicken Pot Pie
I like to start the week with an easy dinner. This Bubble Up Chicken Pot Pie recipe is always a winner in our house. And, it only requires 6 ingredients. This is my kind of recipe!
Harris Teeter makes it an inexpensive dinner because I can stock up on their brand of ingredients for less. Just mix the ingredients together, add to a baking dish and pop it in the oven. The key to making sure the biscuits cook all the way through is to heat the pot pie filling in the oven first before adding the cut up biscuits. Just a little trick I figured out.
Tuesday – Chicken Fajitas
Tuesday is Taco Tuesday in our house so chicken fajitas are on the menu. The left over rotisserie chicken makes fajita prep quick and easy. Just heat up the chicken along with a bag of frozen fajita vegetables and some taco seasoning. Add your favorite fajita toppings for a quick and inexpensive meal.
Wednesday – One Pot Cheesy Sausage Pasta Skillet
Connor has baseball practice on Wednesday so one pot meals are the best for these busy nights. This is one of my favorite one pot meals and makes a ton. I usually have enough to freeze for a whole other dinner. So technically you can make two dinners for $10. This is what I call winning!
Thursday – Brinner
We love having breakfast for dinner. Eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, and cinnamon rolls for dessert. All for less than $10. YUM!
Friday – Pizza night
Friday night is pizza night at our house and Harris Teeter has premade pizzas that are delicious and less than $10. I can either pick one up already cooked or buy their Take and Bake pizza to cook at home. This is my kind of Friday night dinner!
Our new neighborhood is right across the street from Harris Teeter so we’ve found ourselves shopping there a lot lately. Their VIC card saves us money on items that we already had on our grocery list and their Harris Teeter brand items save us even more money. I can even order my groceries online which saves me even more money because I don’t do any impulse shopping. I stick to my list and they bring it out to my car.
And, there is one more thing that I love about Harris Teeter. They always have sunflowers. I’m telling you all it’s the little things that make me happy. The florist already knows me and we’ve only lived here for 3 weeks.
So, who else is up for a great challenge? Head to Harris Teeter and challenge yourself to create $10 meals. It’s easier than you think!
