{Meal Plan} Spinach Fettuccine with Bacon, Ricotta & Roma Tomato

This week I have been using some recipes from Sandra Reynolds ‘The $120 Food Challenge’ Cookbook.  Sandra is a wonderful blogger who started shortly after I did and it has been just amazing to watch her journey from blog to book, I am so pleased for her.  On Sandra’s blog The $120 Food Challenge, she shares recipes that won’t cost a fortune and shows how you can easily feed your family fresh food for $120 each week.  

In the cookbook Sandra shares how to set a budget, meal plan and ideas for lunches.  With a recipe for every season, they are all simple and don’t require extravagant ingredients.  If you are looking to reduce your grocery bill you will enjoy this cookbook.

Awesome meal plan, I might have to pinch a few of those ideas. This week my meal plan came entirely from pre-made dinners or store cupboard ingredients. Sometimes we just need to purge!
