soup, Tuesday, Hubby made me mashed taters, Wednesday I was starting to belong
to the real world again and don’t remember, Thursday, don’t remember, Friday,
hot dogs, Saturday, pretzel crusted chicken (Hubby made) … so this week, I need to be focused.
Cleaned out the fridge (both of them) on Saturday morning
and was surprised by how empty it was when everything was organized … Hubby and
the Princess had done a decent job fending for themselves after all … So I ended
up shopping on Saturday and spent $102. Only meat was the fake crab stuff (6
packages) … depressing how expensive everything is getting. The list was very
specific and I had 20 coupons … receipt said I saved $86 … sure, whatever.
I also want to hit up the Fresh Market on Tuesday for their
$2.99 Tuesday sale … ground beef (85/15) and chicken breast. Ground beef I can
use (I have 3 20 oz packages left I think) AND I really like their ground beef
and chicken so … maybe another $30 or so to be spent …
Ok, enough rambling … here’s what I’m using up this week and
planning on making:
for the meat and made a batch of this salsa
(best to make salsa in advance). Everything was on hand except the shells which
I had Princess pick up. Yup, I would recommend the meat recipe, it’s nice to
make tacos WITHOUT the packet!
Tuesday – Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad (chix in freezer, salad
in fridge, pasta in pantry) AND ahem, I just noticed that blogger does NOT spell check correctly in that I’ve been letting it read “CESAR” … uggg ….
Wednesday – Salisbury Steaks in the crockpot (beef in
freezer) with mashed taters (premade in fridge)
Thursday – Chef Salad (will most likely need to stop and get
Friday – Grillin … chicken thighs and veggies (again, 3rd
week on the menu, what do you think?)
should probably be eating soon …
night so things might get switched around or totally dropped.
Plan Monday … go check it out!
