This Week on the Dining Table

It's the "What Day is It Anyway?" Edition--

This is the opening shot of an extended bender I am on.
If you haven't guessed yet, I am visiting family this week.
There is no meal plan this week as you will see below and there was no meal plan part of last week.
Meal planning is nowhere near my brain at the moment, nor should it be!  8-)
Onward to the meal planning! Such that it is.......
Here's what was planned last week.......

1. Sunday--Leftovers(lasagna, salad)
2. Monday--Leftovers(meatloaf, collards)
3. Tuesday--take-out Pizza(using gift certificate)
4. Wednesday--Leftovers or Breakfast for Dinner or Fend for Yourself
5. Thursday--?no clue
6. Friday--?no clue
7. Saturday--?no clue
And this is what actually happened--

1. Sunday--Leftovers(lasagna, salad)
2. Monday--Leftovers(meatloaf, collards)
3. Tuesday--BK Whopper burger(using BOGO Q)
4. Wednesday--Leftover Chicken Soup
5. Thursday--KFC meal in hotel room-bleh.
6. Friday--Fish Fry
7. Saturday--Pot Roast, Butternut Squash, Corn and Garlic Mashed Potatoes mmmmm
As for my grocery spending last week......$42.02 spent at Weis and $ 5.00 spent at Dollar Tree for a total of $47.02 this week brings the monthly spending to $141.88 for October so far.  $158.12 left in the $300 monthly budget for food in October with 12 days left to spend.
Other than buying ingredients to prepare tonight's dinner for our hosts this might be the only food shopping I do until Oct. 25th., which means only 1 more week of food to fix/serve/buy.
Yeah, I got this thing.....

Leftovers going into this week....nothing.
Here is this week's "food plan"--

1. Sunday--Barbecue Pork Sandwiches with Cole Slaw, Sun Dried Tomato Salsa on Toast
2. Monday--Lena's Lemon Chicken with Zucchini and Tomatoes over Rice
3. Tuesday--Leftovers
4. Wednesday--Dinner Out
5. Thursday--?
6. Friday--?
7. Saturday--?

What I need to buy for this menu?......chicken, zucchini, tomatoes

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. alas I don't do the shopping so I wouldn't know a grocery deal if it hit me first.

  2. I have lots of boneless, skinless chicken breasts for the crockpot. I have a hankering for bbq chicken sandwiches with slaw on top. /salmon in salad in the plans, I may put some of the salmon in scrambled eggs.

    The newspaper ads from last week are here, so I have to look on the internet and look through all the ads before Tuesday night when these ads end.

    Plus, I want to go to the farmer's market tomorrow.
