This Week on the Dining Table

The "I've got no photo" Edition................
I am ensconced down in Ocean City with the evil Kim twins at the moment and my phone charger is in the car so I have no photos to share yet.
But be advised that the hilarity has begun!
Here's a recent pic of the puppies instead...........
Dixie has decided she likes her bed better turned upside down and hangs off it like a cliff.  What a goof!

Moving On....

Onward to the meal planning!

This is what was planned--
1. Sunday--FFY
2. Monday--Lasagna Helper, Veggie from Freezer TBD
3. Tuesday--Beef Pie w/Green Beans/Carrots, Cornbread Topping
4. Wednesday--Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches w/Veggie from Freezer TBD
5. Thursday--Chicken Rice and Broccoli Casserole
6. Friday--Leftovers or FFY or Breakfast for Dinner

Here is this week's "food plan".....
1. Sunday--FFY
2. Monday--Lasagna Helper, Corn
3. Tuesday--Beef Pie w/Green Beans/Carrots, Cornbread Topping
4. Wednesday--Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches
5. Thursday--Chicken, Cheese, Rice and Broccoli Casserole

7. Saturday--Leftovers of FFY

Last week saw 4 nights of home cooked dinners, 3 nights of leftovers/ffy, and 0 nights of Eating Out/Take-Out.
Nothing got thrown away and there were some leftovers when I left town so the guys won't starve right away.

What got put into the freezer last week.....
* 4 pork chops
* 1 bag of broccoli
* 2 lbs. butter
* 2 eggplant parm entrees
* 1 bag of baby carrots

What got taken out of the freezer and used last week.....
* 1 bag of corn
* 1 bag of green beans
* 6 thin pork chops
* 2 chicken breasts

Trips to Weis($64.95), the Shursave Market($17.24)and a trip to Big Lots($26.78)brought the weekly spending to $108.97 and my October spending on food to $108.97 so far this month.

My savings percentage last week was 45.06%(without Rite-Aid trips)and October's monthly savings total comes in at 45.06%(w/out R-A).

I have 24 more food shopping/spending days in October.

Leftovers going into this week......Beef Pie, Lasagna Helper

This week Hubs and Ex-College Boy are on their own as far as meals go.  I left them with assorted leftovers still in the fridge, a pot of fresh pasta sauce and 2 packed freezers with a wide variety of foods in them as well as a stocked pantry.
It will be interesting to see what they fix/eat while I am gone. ;-)

What needs buying for this menu?
Don't know, don't care. lolz

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. There is plenty of meat in the freezer, but I found Pict Sweet frozen vegetables for $1. Last week at another store, I paid $1.16. I have started a list, but it is in the living room where Tommy sleeps. Of course, I have cooked chicken and vegetables to go with it each night. I am making Mavis taco casserole in the crockpot one night, and freezing some and having some for another night. That is how it goes with my meal planning. I did find a piece of frozen fried chicken that Tommy can eat one night along with whatever vegetables are here.

  2. It's awesome for me to have a website, which is good designed for my knowledge.
    thanks admin

  3. Have a wonderful time with Kim and her sister. I think it will be a blast!

  4. In Ocean City Maryland or New Jersey?
    I live 30 minutes from OC NJ!

  5. Have a great time with the wonder twins!
    I love the don't know, don't care attitude!

  6. I always like reading your menu plans and that nothing has gone to waste.

  7. Ha Ha, sounds delicious Sluggy. I like your No Clue menu, we are having that this week too. hehehe
