This Week on the Dining Table

The "It's My Birthday Week but I Really Don't Want to Cook" Edition........

Yep, Sluggy adds another year to her tally this week.

Maybe I can talk Hubs into not making me cook this week like last week mostly.
Yeah, I am getting spoiled.

Here's what was planned last week.....................

1.  Fried Chicken, Coleslaw, Corn, Biscuits
2.  No Clue
3.  No Clue
4.  No Clue
5.  No Clue
6.  No Clue
7.  No Clue
And this is what actually happened--

1.  Fried Chicken, Coleslaw, Corn, Biscuits
2.  IHOP(I had an egg sandwich & onion rings)
3.  Subway sandwich(Chicken)
4.  Leftovers(Still didn't feel like cooking lol)
5.  Lasagna, Salad
6.  Broccoli/Cauliflower Cheese Soup
7.  Chinese Take-out

I cooked 2 meals for the week, once we got home on Tuesday.  I am just a slug.
While I was in Virginia I made a trip to Harris Teeter and some other snacks at Food Lion.  Add in the grocery shopping I did before we left and I had spent a grand total of $143.61 in food shopping and brought home products of a retail value of $317.13 up to Jan. 10th. 

Last week I made 1 trip to the local grocer and spent $21.33 on $30.75 reg. retail worth of food.

My spending so far for January on food is $165.29 for $347.88 worth of food.(Not counting Rite-Aid spending.)
We have 12 days left in the month and I want to keep the spending below $250 for January.  This leaves me approx. $85 left to spend.

Yah, good luck with that Sluggy ol' gal! ;-)

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

1.  Leftover Lasagna
2.  Garlic Ginger Shrimp Stir-fry
3.  Bean and Ham Soup(If too salty for me I'll eat Broc/Caul. Soup.)
4.  Chicken Parmesan, Salad
5.  Broiled Salmon, Coleslaw, Veggie
6.  Leftovers
7. Birthday Meal out(probably steak)
I have ham stock waiting to be made into soup, a large pan of lasagna still leftover, shrimp, fish & chicken in the freezer plus these new meals will net us more leftovers(at least 2 of them).

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?



  1. I am still eating the chicken from last week. But, I want salmon croquettes. However, I have two lbs of ground beef that needs to be cooked in some form. I think I will make spaghetti and make patties for hamburgers, chop and cook and freeze some for other meals.

  2. I refuse to cook on my birthday but maybe this year I should stretch it out to a whole week :) Enjoy it!

  3. Mine is easy:

    (The boy didn't show up, I have a lot of leftovers.)

    Peace <3
