This week's menu

It's Monday, which means it's time to post the menu. Scott says he looks forward to this day when he gets to see what he will be eating all week.

Remember this menu is based on what was on sale and what was already in my freezer and pantry. It made for a GREAT week a the grocery store. Around 60.00, I think, including Thursday night's Kroger run. Kroger was having a one night sale due to Halloween, and I bought a few things at rock bottom prices. By the way, Kroger was INSANE. I am not sure it was worth it. The sale was from 4 pm to midnight, and people were going crazy over it. It was a mad house.

Thursday night at Kroger, Oscar Meyer hot dogs were around 2 dollars (I think), Kroger hot dog buns were .50, Tombstone Pizza was 1.99, and Frito brand chips were 1.27. Other things were on sale, but these are the items I purchased. You will see these things show up on the menu over the next two weeks. Here you will find what else was on my list, with a combined total of 60.00 I think. 40.00 less than we have budgeted--woo hoo. Hence the dinner out on Friday night.

Here goes
Friday: dinner out with Scott and my sister, Kate
Saturday: frozen pizza
Sunday: whatever we can find
Monday: Pork Tenderloin (thanks for all of the wonderful advice and recipes!!!!), rice, and peas
Tuesday: Grilled Hot dogs, baked beans
Wednesday: Chicken and rice, broccoli, rolls
Thursday: leftovers, cereal, whatever causes the least mess in the kitchen

Breakfast: oatmeal breakfast cookies, south beach bars, whole grain waffles, cereal
Lunch: grilled cheese, bean soup, pasta, lean cuisine pizzas

Back to the CVS thing- how do you know which products to buy in order to get the ECB's? I looked at the circular, but I couldn't figure it out! Also, what is your feeling about joining Sam's in order to stock up? I can't figure out if it is worth it or not!

Good deal on the Kroger sale! I managed to keep our bill down to $60 this week too, but then I went to Costco to stock up on meat and it got UGLY!!!

Is there a reason you start your menu on Friday?

Tutti said...

I think you should plan on eating every sunday night dinner with the mccormicks. that is, whenever you are in GA.

Scott said...

Tutti, I think that is a great idea. I am always eager to find out what the McCormick's had for dinner. It's always something interesting and tasty.

And a little confession, sometimes I don't eat dinner on Sunday night banking on you offering us something. You haven't let me down yet.
