Budgeting for a week's worth of meals

How much do you budget for a week's worth of meals? I know it's a tough questions since we all have ingredients in the kitchen in addition to what we'd buy. When I returned from vacation, I spent about $60 replenishing our supplies (it's just two of us, and we had meat in the freezer for my husband, so I didn't buy any). Also, we live in central NJ, so prices might be higher here.

$60 = about 4 bags of groceries.
Two part question, second part: What groceries do you buy for about $60?
