Weekend Shopping & Menu Plan

These groceries cost $29.39 all together, so I didn't quite manage staying to $25 for the week. Maybe next week will be closer to $20? We'll see.

By far the best deal was the Post Cereal. It was $1.49 on sale at Albertson's and I used 2 $1.00/2 coupons that doubled making each box only $0.49. At the checkout a Post catalina printed for $3.00 off my next shopping trip which meant the cereal was actually free and I got an overage of $1.00. Sweet!

Other great deals:
olive oil $4.99 ($4.00) = $.99
Millstone coffee coupon for free 1/2 pound
Dannon kids yogurt $2.00 ($1.00 doubled) = Free
Tillamook organic sour cream markdown to $.69

Dinners this week:
Wednesday - Pulled pork sandwiches - from freezer
Thursday - Ham & bean soup - using ham stock & ham from freezer
Friday - Beef Bourguignon - from freezer & company for dinner - that's OK, right?
Saturday - Orange chicken with rice - from freezer
Sunday - Birdseye Steamfresh dinner from freezer
Monday - Italian sausage soup - beans from freezer
Tuesday - Pork chops & Potatoes - chops from freezer

I am really focused on emptying my freezer this week, can you tell? I am definitely defrosting this month!

W - mac'n'cheese pie (packed lunch)
D - PB & J (packed lunch)
F - french toast
S - grilled cheese
S - leftover ham soup & biscuits
M - pancakes
T - PB & J (packed lunch)
