Weekly Menu

Hello!  So last week, before I shopped, I scoured the stores online coupon system, the weekly ad and my own coupons and really went to work on keeping the grocery bill below, well $150.00 for the week.  I did it - by $10.00.  I won't lie.  I got a little giddy as the cashier kept swiping coupons.  I will also not lie and say that I had $20.00 in coupons . . .between rewards, and in-store credits but still, all of that brought that bill down!  I even bought a few things I don't buy on a regular basis (like a Roasted Chicken so my husband could have something different for meals then his standard PB and J!).

I had to change the original plan slightly because I did not buy Pork Chops but just extra Ground Chuck.  Sometimes you just have to buy what's on sale . .. and red tagged!

Here's the plan for the coming week.

Friday - Tacos.  We haven't had them in awhile and the kids love them.

Saturday - Chick-Fil-Lay Nuggets and Fries.  This is something we all enjoy and it really is pretty easy to make.

Sunday - After church I plan on us going out to eat at the Chinese Buffet.  Based on Easter Sunday, I don't think it will be too busy even though it is Mother's Day.  I don't want to cook today :-)

Monday -So, Darryl has finally started to have relief from his stomach issues so we've slowly been adding some things back into the rotation.  Tonight, we'll have just some baked chicken (or grilled, depending on the weather) and then Cheesy Broccoli Rice Casserole and Rolls.

Tuesday -Wednesday - The truth?? I have no idea what we are having for dinner.  I'm going to see what meat is the least expensive and go from there.  At the writing of this, we are anticipating some surgery for my husband within the next week or so . . .so who knows - I might be eating hospital food HA!

Thursday - Soccer, my parents are coming . . .we'll eat out after the game!
