Meal Planning Ideas for Meijer

It’s a new week of bringing you these awesome budget friendly meal planning for all of you Meijer Shoppers. 

For this week the Meijer Matchups posted here on A Mitten Full Of Savings, I’ve been able to come up with a whole week’s worth of dinners that will cost you less than $50, along with a few things from your pantry!   You can also print out my FREE Meal Planning printables that will help you plan and organize your meals each week! (this is always super helpful for me!!)

  • This is based on a family of 4-5- so you will need to adjust it accordingly for a bigger or smaller family.
  • All items are on sale or part of the lower Meijer price. If you don’t have the pantry items, then you will need to add those into your final price.

Meal 1: Crab and Lobster Cakes with Broccoli  $6.98

Directions:  In a bowl, mix the meats, cream cheese, onion, capers, and 2 T bread crumbs.  Form into four patties and coat with the remaining bread crumbs. Heat ¼ inch of olive oil in a deep pan.  Saute the patties until golden brown and turn over. When both sides are browned, remove from the heat. Steam the broccoli to desired tenderness.  Serve with the patties.

Remove from the pan and add in the onions and carrots.  Saute until tender. Add in the tomato paste and stir well. Add in the stock and chicken, bring to a boil, cover, and reduce to a simmer for 30-40 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through and tender.  Remove the chicken, add in the flour, and stir until thickened. Serve the juices over the chicken. Heat the butter in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add in the green beans and saute, stirring often. When the beans just start to become tender, add in the garlic and saute until the beans are slightly caramelized.
