This Week on the Dining Table

  "You never hesitate to tackle the most difficult problems"

Ok, so I am bringing back this feature due to popular demand....ok, maybe not so much popular demand but it gives me something to fill up this space with one day a week.
So sue me...... ;-)

Last week, sit down for this, I had NO meal plan.

And yes, I hear the sound of fainting all across my readership as you let those words sink in.

I just bought some groceries(on discount or sale of course)and pulled stuff out of the freezer and leftovers in the fridge and just went where it led me.

Monday--pizza(homemade and frozen varieties), salad
Tuesday--leftover kielbasa & caramelized onions on rolls, green beans
Wednesday--salmon, asparagus(had to finish using up what I bought 2 weeks ago)
Thursday--leftover chicken & asparagus risotto
Friday--gourmet burger(gotten this week on clearance), creamed spinach
Saturday--leftover homemade spaghetti sauce, rigatoni, salad

And I did ALOT of grocery shopping last week.
4 trips to 3 different stores.
Catching lots of "deals" this week like MANY canned tomato products, spicy brown mustard and ketchup(for grilling season), Rotel, using a rain check to get Tide for $1.47 a bottle(unheard of price!!!), many fresh pork products and other meats on clearance for the freezer, butter on sale, many soda  & water bottle packs for donation to #2 Son's Jazz Band Festival tomorrow, etc.

All in I spent $174.00 on $318.72 worth of groceries this week.
I am up to $295.33 of food spending and we are only halfway through the month!

I'll not be spending any grocery $ this week though and that will get us to the last week of April.
So we aren't in horrible shape with the food spending.....yet. lolz

And I have NO MENU again for this week.
Yep, I am flying by the seat of my pants.....

All I can say is that Sunday night was a little Mexican something or other.  8-)

So what's on tap at your house this week?



  1. You are a wild woman! DO I need to talk you back from the edge?

  2. Wow, even for no menu, it still beats even my best efforts. All sounds yummy. And too fancy, haha. Asparragus season already? Can't wait for our little farmers' market to open to get some asparragus. Store bought ones around here cost more than the meat they go with.

  3. Well tonight I came home from the studio and I had some peanuts. I might go back upstairs and get some cheese.....

    1. Ha! That'd be me, cheese and almonds! I can make a meal out of that.
