I Had A Dream about Mangoes… ~ Chase Family Meal Plan

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on February 12, 2014

Black Bean Cilantro Mango

Last week I was traveling to a blogger’s conference and while out and about, I saw on Instagram that a gal was working on her 20 Meals from Costco for $150 shopping and prepping experience and noticed that she had mangoes in her photo. I commented about how I wish my store had mangoes again…as my kids eat them like candy and I usually have to buy 2-3 boxes at a time! Last night, I had a dream that my store had mangoes and that they were in their own “island” off to the side. In my dream, I shrieked when I saw them.

So I bounced into Costco this morning to grab a few things and pick up the box of contacts I had ordered…and lo and behold, MY DREAM CAME TRUE. I might have shrieked, but quietly…and 2 boxes landed in my cart! Wahoo!

When the boys get home from school, my guess is that they’ll want to eat an entire box full of them. (They would if I let them!)

Y’all, you just never know when you’re actual dreams will come true ;)

Figured out what meals you want to make…now find the best deals by searching in the Favado app to determine which store has the best price on ingredients (mainly meats and vegetables)? Use the app to get the most bang for your grocery buck! 

Or spin the table and search the Favado app before making your meal plan, then plan your meals based on your family’s favorite ingredients that are on sale!
