Meal planning: September week four recipe costs

So on my meal plan for this week is a pot of French onion soup and a batch of pumpkin muffins.


French Onion Soup

  • Onions – $3.72
  • Beef base – $1.77
  • Flour  – $0.03
  • Worchestershire sauce – $0.10
  • Salt – $0.05
  • Bay leaf – free! From my mother’s plant

Total: $5.67 Makes 10 servings so $0.57 per bowl and is 208 calories a bowl. I serve it with a slice homemade bread ($0.10?) plus a slice of swiss cheese melted ($0.50) for a total of $1.17 for a meal. Can’t get much better than that!

Pumpkin Muffins*

  • Flour $0.18
  • Sugar $0.20
  • Brown sugar $0.20
  • Coconut oil $0.50
  • Baking soda, baking powder, salt, spices, vanilla extract $0.75
  • Eggs $0.42
  • Pumpkin $1.64

Total: $3.89 Makes a dozen muffins so $0.32 per muffin and they’re 224 calories each.

*I lost one of the receipts for this so I’m guessing quite a bit unfortunately.
