Week 12 Meal Prep

If you can believe it, I actually didn’t plan on making this week Italian themed. But let’s embrace it!

So for this week I cooked up some Italian Wedding Soup that ended up being a little more like chicken broth-soaked pasta, Italian Sausage with Peppers and Onions, with some Baguette on the side.

Overall, this week cost about $1.92 dollars per meal for lunch and dinner for Monday-Friday.
