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. This morning, I took 8 chicken breasts from the crockpot and immediately put new potatoes in. When the potatoes were done, I ate too many, so I put in another crockpot full. Corn and potatoes will make a good meal with the chicken and potatoes. There are also two kinds of salad greens here for a salad or a sandwich. Green grapes are $0.88/lb here at Sprouts. The chicken was $1.99/lb for boneless, skinless chicken breasts.

  2. Sorry you are down hope you feel better.

  3. Roasting a turkey now- it smells delicious! How old is your daughter and how much college does she have left? Nice mom- leaving $$ for groceries! Sorry about the cold.

  4. Things aren't going so well for you. Drink more and the head cold won't matter.

  5. I'm sorry you're under the weather!
    We've gotten a lot of FREE food this week... My SIL sent home a bunch of leftovers from her grad party and Ryan worked a food truck at a local Irish festival and brought home leftovers from his truck and several other trucks in the block. For lunch, I have my choice of curry, chicken salad, Indian soup, muffins and tartar sauce. But no fish...

  6. So sorry you feel like crapola. Whisky and garlic - Ukrainian cure-alls

  7. I'm filing a formal complaint-write more. I miss getting a new dose of sluggy every day.
