Menu Plan Monday

I made a quick trip to pick up some deals for the week at Giant Eagle. I debated the Giant Eagle ice cream, which is on sale and I have a $1 coupon for. I think I might head back before the end of the sale - it's hard to pass up 1.5qt for $1.25 OOP. I can always hang onto in the deep freeze for the upcoming birthdays at the end of summer. I picked up some Marlin for dinner tonight - I wanted to grill. Of course, we had a few lines of nasty storms blow through - so I had to sneak in the grilling. I did okay overall on groceries, saving 42%. I opted not to use my 13% in foodperks today, as I feel I need to let it build up a little more and use it for a larger shopping trip.

This week, as you can guess, there is once again turkey in our menu plan. The cheeseburgers on Monday, turkey in the meatballs on Thursday, and to make the Sloppy Joes for the community picnic.

Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me.
