This Week on the Dining Table

The "Feeling Wicked" Edition....

I think I've bounced back a bit to feeling more like myself.  I knew because when I saw this meme on FB I laughed out loudly and long.
Mmmm, shit pie.........lolz

Moving On....

Onward to the meal planning!

This is what was planned--

1. Sunday---Leftovers
2. Monday-Chili Hot Dogs, Potato Salad, Baked Beans
3. Tuesday--Leftovers
4. Wednesday--French Onion Soup or Leftovers
5. Thursday--Leftovers
6. Friday--Fried Haddock(or Baked), Cole Slaw, leftover sides
7. Saturday--Leftovers

And this is what actually happened--

1. Sunday---Leftovers
2. Monday-Chili Hot Dogs, Potato Salad, Baked Beans
3. Tuesday--Leftovers
4. Wednesday--Fried Haddock(or Baked), Cole Slaw, Brussels Sprouts
5. Thursday--Leftovers
6. Friday--Spaghetti and Meatballs, Salad, Garlic Bread
7. Saturday--Leftovers

Last week saw 3 nights of home cooked dinners, 4 nights of leftovers/fend for yourself, 0 night of Eating Out/Take-Out.  Had to make a new veggie side w/the fish as all the leftover sides were eaten already and enough other leftovers that the French Onion Soup wasn't needed.

What got put into the freezer last week.....
* 2 stuffed turkey small roulade
* 2 packs of Panko pork cutlets
* 2 packs of Bratwurst
* .56 lb. of thin cut sirloin steak
*  8.32 lb. turkey breast

What got taken out of the freezer and used last week.....
* 2 lbs. haddock
* small bag of hot dog chili
* 1 bag Brussels Sprouts

Two trips to Weis($59.70 and $27.58)and one trip to  Walmart($22.48), the CVS spending from my WAM of $2.42 and the forgotten Dollar Tree($5)and Bread Outlet($7.79)trips from the previous week's tally brought the food spending last week to $124.97 and my April total so far to $325.44.

My savings percentage last week was 50.22%(without Rite-Aid trips)and April's monthly savings total came to 55.43%(w/out R-A). 

I have 9 more food shopping/spending days in April.

Leftovers going into this week....a little lasagna, some Beef Pie, a little Beef Stroganof w/rice, hot dog chili, potato salad, baked beans, a couple pieces of fish, spaghetti, meatballs, garlic bread, some barbecue and Cole slaw.
So many leftovers!!!

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

1. Sunday---Ham, Mac and Cheese, Green Beans, Deviled Eggs, Rolls, Apple Pie(Easter)
2. Monday-Leftovers
3. Tuesday--Leftovers
4. Wednesday--French Onion Soup or Leftovers
5. Thursday--Leftovers
6. Friday--Pizza, Salad
7. Saturday--Leftovers

This week will see 3 new meals cooked, 4 nights of leftovers/FFY, and 0 nights of Take-Out/Eating Out.
We have so many leftovers including Sunday's so I am hoping I don't even have to cook the 2 nights I have planned the rest of this week.  Because the kids don't tend to want to eat leftovers(when are they moving out and whose children are they really!!?)and will go buy themselves Chinese, Subway or other fast food instead.  Hubs and I don't go through them quickly so I think we'll be eating leftovers ALL week and no cooking will happen this week.  Stay tuned to find out next Monday on what happened.

What needs buying for this menu? Nothing except for some milk.

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 am so happy you are feeling better. I am in for a hell of a two weeks and will need lots of love I have decided. Did you have a nice Easter?

  2. When yours move out, can they take mine with them??????

  3. I laughed out loud when I saw the picture of Minnie with the caption.

  4. Nice shopping Sluggy. I am just catching up after a rough year. So I didn't realize you were ill. I hope you are on the mend.

    The only meat we purchased this week was sirloin steaks on sale at $3.99 a lb. which is a great price for here.
