This Week on the Dining Table

The  "It's Almost Time!!!" Edition--
1 more week and we are heading West.  Gosh, I have so much to much to pillage at Rite-Aid before we go, etc. lolz

Moving On....

Onward to the meal planning!

Here's what was planned last week--

1. Sunday--Leftovers
2. Monday--Pork Tenderloin Sammiches
3. Tuesday--Hot Dogs, Burgers, Ribs, Mac Salad, Pie
4. Wednesday--Barbecue Pork, Rolls, Coleslaw
5. Thursday--Tacos or Taco Salad
6. Friday--Leftovers
7. Saturday-? Daughter cooking

And this is what actually happened--

1. Sunday--Leftovers
2. Monday--Pork Tenderloin Sammiches
3. Tuesday--Hot Dogs, Burgers, Ribs, Mac Salad, Pie
4. Wednesday--Leftovers
5. Thursday--Barbecue Pork, Rolls, Coleslaw
6. Friday--Leftovers or Fend for Yourself
7. Saturday--Leftovers or Fend for Yourself

Last week saw 3 nights of home cooked dinners, 4 nights of leftovers and 0 nights of Take-Out.
We had so many leftovers from the picnic on the 4th(and the pork I smoked for bbq)that we've just been eating leftovers most nights.

I made 3 small trips to the Weis Markets(largest trip was $13.70) and 1 trip to the ShurSave Market, added to the $52.95 I forgot to add in to last month, all totaled came to $116.12 OOP.  This brings my July food spending total to $116.12.  There are 21 days left in the month. 

My savings percentages last week was 45.42% which brings the month's percentage to 45.42%. 

Leftovers going into this dog chili, beef brats, barbecue, coleslaw and meat spaghetti sauce.  Not much left so there will be a lot of cooking this week.

Here is this week's "food plan"....
* Denotes "complicated" meals

1. Sunday--Leftovers(leftover Barbecue in Calzones)
2. Monday--Eggplant Parmesan
3. Tuesday--Hubs is cooking hahahaha
4. Wednesday--Ravioli or Pasta(using leftover sauce)
5. Thursday--Breakfast for Dinner
6. Friday--Daughter is cooking
7. Saturday--Marinated Beef Kabobs

This week will see 6 new meals cooked, 1 nights of leftovers and 0 night of Take-Out/Eating-Out.  Daughter and Hubs are each cooking once this week so we'll see what dinners those nights turn out to be.

What I need to buy for this menu?  Some veggies for kabobs.  Can't think of anything else right now.

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. I was reading Rite Aid's ad this morning and never thought about what I might need. I just thought of all the damage you can do with this really good ad!

    1. LOLZ You know me too well. I have already left a wake of destruction at R-A here. Roar!

  2. I'm eating through left overs and odd combinations. tonight is wild rice pilaf, with make our own bean burritos because I have tortillas, quac, beans, and sour cream to use up.

  3. I suppose you will pillage the whole way West. This will be a whole new version of "How the West Was Won"?

    Cherries are still $1.69. Free corn and tomatoes from the market are on the menu with B/S chicken breasts. I see BLTs in my near future. I am going to try cooking bacon in the oven for the first time.
