Safeway Weekly Meal Plan for 5 Under $100
Here is a sample meal plan for the week that highlights meal ideas that you can make for a week’s work of dinners, two breakfasts, and lunches using sale ingredients at Safeway. My objective is to keep the meal plan under $100 per week and each recipe feeds 5.
You can always halve the recipes if you have a smaller household. This week’s protein focus is chicken thighs, eggs, ground beef, canned beans, salmon and shrimp. Produce focus is apples, broccoli, asparagus, avocados, and salad.
