Please Note: I post my weekly menu to encourage menu planning and to give meal ideas, not as a nutritional standard. You should feed your family based on your priorities and values. You may not be able to replicate this exact menu for $125 because sales vary by region and you will have different items on hand, but you can save money just by using a menu. 🙂)
Read how I feed my family for less without extreme couponing in my Save More-Clip Less ebook!

Do you have any completely or almost c platelet meatless meal plans? I love this site, by the way! <3
Hi Starr! No, we do not have any meatless plans.
It looked like the dressing recipie was clickable, but it takes me to Uncle Ben’s Website. Did you make it or just use bottled?
I use bottled.
That is a friend’s website, not mine. I hate those advertising links!
I can seem to get the link to the Greek Vinaigrette to work. Help!
Here is the recipe for the Greek Pasta Salad (Is that what you mean?):
12 oz. box bow tie pasta– cooked, drained and rinsed
1 six ounce can medium pitted black olives, sliced
1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
1 cup Feta Cheese crumbles
1 1/2 cups Greek Vinaigrette salad dressing (add more if you like)
Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl. Refrigerate for 1-3 hours to allow flavors to infuse throughout.
Let me know if you need something else. 🙂
