This Week on the Dining Table

The "Disgusting Poop" Edition.........

Found this toy at Ollie's(Good Stuff Cheap!)recently, didn't buy it. lolz  It's someone's take on Play-Doh that would definitely appeal to little boys and their scatological humor.  The "dough" comes with corn kernels and flies to "keep it real".  bleck! lolz

Moving On....

Onward to the meal planning!

This is what was planned--

1. Sunday--Beef Stroganoff, Rice
2. Monday--Spaghetti, Meatballs in sauce, Salad?
3. Tuesday--Bratwurst on rolls, Potato Salad, Spinach
4. Wednesday--Beef Pie
5. Thursday--Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches, Sweet Potato Fries
6. Friday--Leftovers
7. Saturday--Fend for Yourself or maybe Tacos?

And this is what actually happened--

1. Sunday--Beef Stroganoff, Rice
2. Monday--Spaghetti, Meatballs in sauce, Salad
3. Tuesday--Bratwurst on rolls, Baked Beans
4. Wednesday--Leftovers
5. Thursday--Beef Pie
6. Friday--Tacos
7. Saturday--Fend for Yourself

Pork Tenderloins didn't happen yet(will be having it tonight).

Last week saw 5 nights of home cooked dinners, 2 nights of leftovers/fend for yourself, 0 night of Eating Out/Take-Out. 

 A couple of grocery trips.....2 trips to to Weis($30.99/$26.44)and a few things from Ollie's($2.32)brought the weekly food spending to $59.75 and brought the December monthly total to $100.06 so far.

I have 21 days left in my shopping month for December.

My savings percentage last week was 63.71%(without Rite-Aid trips)and December's monthly savings total comes to 64.35%(w/out R-A)so far.  

Leftovers going into this week....a LOT of rice, some spaghetti and meatballs in sauce, a lot of taco meat, a good size piece of Beef Pie(2 servings)and some Baked Beans.

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

1. Sunday--Chicken Broccoli Rice Casserole
2. Monday--Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches, Sweet Potato Fries
3. Tuesday--Chicken Alfredo w/Mushrooms
4. Wednesday--Leftover Buffet
5. Thursday--Beef Stew, Biscuits
6. Friday--Pizza, Salad
7. Saturday--Leftovers

This week will see 5 new meals cooked, 2 nights of leftovers/FFY, 0 nights of Take-Out/Eating Out.
I have mushrooms that need using up, as well as leftover rice from the Stroganoff which got used in the Casserole on Sunday evening.

What needs buying for this menu? A bag of broccoli and pizza fixings.  Hot Pockets are on sale until Thursday and Ex-College Boy has requested some too.

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. Oh my Danny would be all over that!

  2. Corn and flies? Truly gross! I made sketti and meatballs on Sunday. Monday was pot roast in the crock pot. Today will be some of those leftovers. After that, who knows?
