Menu Plan Monday

I did a lot of grocery shopping this weekend. I went through my coupons and found all of my coupons that expire on 12/31 and used those in conjunction with some sales to get some really good deals. At Giant Eagle, I saved 49% on my grocery bill. In fact, I had gone through a self-checkout lane and the attendant had to come over and help me because there is a limit to the number of coupons it will accept (only 2 of each coupon and then evidently only up to 30% savings). The best deal was the 10 boxes of cereal for $7, but I got plenty of other things. I also headed to Walmart where I picked up some frozen stuff to start restocking the freezer. I still need to head out and pick up some more fixin's for New Year's Eve. We are having seafood and I always prefer to pick that up closer to the day that we will use it.

At our house, the focus is on dinners. I tend to only list the main course and any standard side we have with it. We do still have vegetables and/or fruit with each of our dinners, I just don't always call them out.

This week, we are all home, so we will have breakfast and lunch at home too. It likely will be cereal for breakfast and sandwiches or leftovers for lunch.

Turkey Tetrazzini (the last of the Christmas turkey)

Chicken Caesar salads

Spaghetti and Meatballs

Chicken Gravy over Biscuits

Crab Cakes, Shrimp, Munchies

Pork Chops and Sauerkraut
