Supper Sunday turned into Menu Monday

Cheesy I know...but the weekend seems to go so fast and I never had a chance to sit and blog last night.

Anyway...Yummy food planned this week before we leave for the World Series Thursday!

Sunday-Fried Chicken, Mashed Potatoes, broccoli w/ hollondaise sauce, dinner roll and strawberries for dessert

Monday-Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo, salad, garlic bread w/ cheese

Tuesday-Pool Party w/ pizza and fruit salad and cake planned

Wednesday-Honey Ginger Chicken w/ Vanilla Basmati Rice, steamed broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots

Thursday-Leave for World Series- I've stocked up on easy hotel eats...I'll get lunch meats and such before we head out.

I hit the local farmers market yesterday and stocked up on blueberries, strawberries, bananas, a watermelon, cantaloupe,and grapes (yummy frozen treat). All of this will be gone before we leave so I'll get more to take on the trip.

The pantry is more than stocked this week with tons of BOGO buys on a variety of cereals, frozen pizzas, a million snacks, and we froze our yogurt tubes that they have already begun to scarf down. I am proud to say that we saved over $152 yesterday with sales and coupons. Of course I spent $212, but for a family of 8 w/ breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks I'd say that's pretty good. Oh and as we had to go to Wal-Mart for our baseball goodie bag stuff I found they had a whole $1 section on a variety of snacks we regularly stock up on...Cheese-Nips, Vanilla Oreos, Goldfish and so many more. Of course my husband being a manager from Publix (and no we do not get any type of discount at all) was not thrilled that I was so excited about these finds. We typically only shop Publix, but since so many good fruits are in season I have been shopping the local farmers market unless Publix has sales on organic. But now that I know about Wal-Mart's snack deals I may sneak over every now and then.

Hopefully, I will get to Not Me! Monday sometime this afternoon. If I can catch a minute without a Monkey crawling all over the keyboard and stealing my mouse.

What are you eating this week? Leave me some comments so I can get ideas!

  1. Our menu for the week is as follows:

    Monday/Fish night: Tilapia, spicy yellow rice, and broccoli

    Tuesday: Chili bake (on the back on the cornbread stuffing box) and salad

    Wednesday: Bacon blue cheese hamburgers and marinated veggies (mushrooms, onions, squash, potatoes and zucchini

    Thursday: Buffalo chicken salad (tomatoes, green onions, carrots, corn and avocado)

    I will be out of town for the rest of week in Savannah and am looking forward to a much needed vacation!

    I plan our meals out every Saturday evening/Sunday morning and head to the grocery. I work with several people who laugh at me because I take the time to plan out our meals. They just don't understand how much time it saves in the long run.

    I love the menu posts and get lots of good ideas from them. Keep 'em coming!
