Today it's back to school for the kids and me. I am excited to see my friends and the students ~ but I was just getting used to being a stay at home mom. When is spring break?
I have another menu plan for you! I am on a roll, people.
This week we will have:
- taco soup
- sloppy joes
- crescent roll chicken
- spaghetti - homemade meat sauce
- marinated chicken & potatoes
Greg doesn't really love the crescent roll chicken, but we have crescent rolls and plenty of cream cheese. I'm going to see what I can do to change it up a little. If it's fabulous, I'll let you know all about it.
Are you eating from the pantry this month? How's that going for you?
As I've mentioned before, our grocery store has case sales in January. And we did partake this week. How can you pass this up when it's food you will be eating anyway? It's better to get it on sale! Because of the case sale we overspent my primary goal of $140 a week, but I kinda knew it was going to happen.
Walking up to the register Greg said that he thought our basket was about $180. Nah, I told him. I said it was more like $100, knowing full well it was not. After the loyalty card deals and coupons our total was $180.11. Sign that boy up for The Price is Right!
So with the overage from this week and the under spending from last week, I am about $25 over for the month. I can make that up in the next three weeks.
I'm linking up with orgjunkie.com and Good Cheap Eats today. Hop on over and see what everyone else is doing this week.
