This Week on the Dining Table

The "Romaine" Edition.........



I LOL over these two memes over the weekend.  I just had to share! 8-)))

Moving On....

Onward to the meal planning!

This is what was planned--

1. Sunday--Apricot glazed Pork Chops, Hawaiian rolls, 2 kinds of tossed Salads, homemade mac and cheese
2. Monday--Leftovers
3. Tuesday--Chicken Enchiladas, Rice, Beans
4. Wednesday--Leftovers
5. Thursday--Turkey, Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, Lula rolls, Sweet Potatoes, Mashed Potatoes, Glazed Carrots, Cranberry "glop", Pie
6. Friday--Leftovers or Fend for Yourself
7. Saturday--Leftovers or Fend for Yourself

And this is what actually happened--

1. Sunday--Apricot glazed Pork Chops, Hawaiian rolls, 2 kinds of tossed Salads, homemade mac and cheese
2. Monday--Leftovers
3. Tuesday--Chicken Enchiladas, Beans
4. Wednesday--Leftovers
5. Thursday--Turkey, Stuffing, Green Bean Casserole, Lula rolls, Sweet Potatoes, Mashed Potatoes, Glazed Carrots, Cranberry "glop", Pie
6. Friday--Frozen Pizza
7. Saturday--Leftovers or Fend for Yourself

Last week saw 4 nights of home cooked dinners, 3 nights of leftovers/fend for yourself, 0 nights of Eating Out.  3 nights of home cooked really since Friday was frozen pizzas.
A boring "everything cooked as planned" type of week mostly.  Boring can be a good thing.  ;-)

 A flurry of grocery shopping at Giant(mostly for freebies, spent $22.56)and THREE shops at Weis($47.18, 43.60 and $48.77)brought the weekly food spending to $162.11 and brought the November monthly total to $482.94 so far.
The budget has been busted.....wah wah........

I have 4 days left in my shopping month for November.

My savings percentage last week was 59.55%(without Rite-Aid trips)and November's monthly savings total comes to 59.10%(w/out R-A)so far.  Last week's great deals gave my savings rate a hefty boost for the month. 8-)

Leftovers going into this week.....a little turkey, a lot of stuffing, rolls, a bit of carrots, mac and cheese, hawaiian rolls, a couple of halves of sweet potatoes.
Not much left so it's time to start up the cooking again. sigh

Here is this week's "food plan".....

1. Sunday--Leftovers or Fend for Yourself
2. Monday--Hoagies
3. Tuesday--Seafood Buffet
4. Wednesday--Spaghetti and Meatballs
5. Thursday--Chicken Tenders, Taters, Veggie TBD
6. Friday--Leftovers
7. Saturday--Breakfast for Dinner(tentatively)

This week will see 4 new meals cooked, 2 nights of leftovers/FFY, 1 night of Take-Out/Eating Out.  A local sub shop has a deal on hoagies today so we'll go with that and ease back into cooking mode slowly this week.  I cooked up some meatballs on Sunday so Hubs can handle dinner that night as well.

What needs buying for this menu?  I'd like to have some salad greens if I can find any w/the romaine scare.

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 last week?

Any great deals on food at your stores this week?

  1. The Romaine memes are funny, Sluggy. We had Asian Salads on the menu for today with NO romaine. Your menu for the wee sounds delicious

  3. Sluggy,

    This is a very nice menu as usual. I am very curious. What do you serve in your seafood buffet?

    1. "Seafood Buffet" is my term for using up little bits of this and that.....nothing big enough to feed everyone. Things like a small box of frozen breaded shrimp, a small piece of fish to broil,etc.

  4. Pretty much stuck to the schedule last week, except I put the turkey in Friday before work and husband took it out.

    Sunday, leftovers. Monday,turkey hash and turkey soup. Tuesday, Italian roast beef, waffle fries, green beans. Wednesday corned beef casserole. Thursday chicken something. Friday, I work 8-5 and my oldest works right after school so its definitely a FFY night
