Everything got made and eaten as planned.
Last week I made 2 trips to 2 different markets and spent $38.87 on $120.47 worth of groceries.

I also did 6 transactions at Rite-Aid(counting yesterday), where I spent $7.19 (but got back $5 in cash for some Qs that didn't take) on $234.66 of items there for the week.

Going into this week, in leftovers we have........lots of Turkey Day foods and Beef Stroganoff and Rice.
And most of a pie too.

Here is the plan for this week.........

1.  Turkey Day Leftovers
2.  Salmon, Mac & Cheese leftovers, Brussels Sprouts
3.  Leftovers
4.  Leftovers or Fend for Yourself
5.  Quiche, Tossed Salad
6.  Pork Chops, Sugar Snap Peas, leftover assorted Turkey Day sides
7.  Leftovers
What I need to buy for this menu.........just some eggs.  We went through a lot of eggs last week what with pies, stuffing, baked sweet breads and cookies being made.  And deviled eggs too! 8-)

I'm going to try to stay out of the grocery stores  this week other than necessities(eggs).  Though the .99¢ lb. whole chickens I saw in one of the flyers looks tempting. 8-)
What is getting fixed and served at your house this week?
Was last week's plan successful, did you go off plan or did you not even plan what was going to be eaten that week?

Any great deals on food at your stores this week?
How much did you spend total on food in November?  My total is NOT pretty!! lolz
Was it a big spending month like mine was or not?



  1. I ate like a hog. And have leftovers galore. No food purchases for me this week!

    Peace <3

  2. A lovely family you got there Sluggy! And a yummy spread!

  3. It was not a big spending month for me. This week, last week--free Chic-fil-A sandwiches all the way. Without water, there is no way I am going to cook....okay, just not much at a time or each week.

    I thought I asked this once--is that at your house? Maybe I missed something.

    1. Yep, that's my empty dining room in the photos.
