This Week on the Dining Table...HaHaHa

 The "Sort of Back to Meal Planning"...

I think this fortune cookie I cracked open in June says it all as far as life here right now. lol
(If you can't read it, it says "Don't panic.)

Onward to the meal planning!

Moving On-
This is what was planned--
1. Sunday--FFY-I had a small tv dinner
2. Monday--Chicken apple sausage, Sweet Potato Wedges
3. Tuesday--Spinach Salad and TBD
4. Wednesday--Leftovers or No Clue
5. Thursday--Fend for Yourself
6.  Friday--Salad, Pizza(homemade on flatbreads)
7. Saturday--Leftovers

And this is what really happened.......
1. Sunday--FFY-I had a small tv dinner
2. Monday--Chicken apple sausage, Sweet Potato Wedges
3. Tuesday--Chinese Take-Out(I had Hot and Sour Soup)
4. Wednesday--Spinach Salad(didn't need anything else)
5. Thursday--Fend for Yourself(We had Father's Day lunch out)
6.  Friday--Salad, Flat Bread Pizza
7. Saturday--Leftover Chicken Sausage, Collards

What got put into the freezer last week....
* 8 pack of burrito

What got taken out of the freezer and used...

* 1 pack Chicken Apple Sausages

I went a little wild with food shopping this week. *Sluggy hangs her head in shame.*
We spent a whopping $271.24 on food/toiletries/HBA last week at Target(both in store and online), P and R Outlet, Aldi and Walmart.  No Weis(PMITA)Markets again. This brings our food/toiletries/paper goods Grand Total to $326.50 for June.   Hopefully I'm done with June and can claim it a success in keeping under $400 spent!

There are 2 shopping days left in June.

I've earned $263.24 on Ibotta in June.
I've earned $0.00 on Checkout51 in June.
I've earned $8.00 on Coupons dotcom/Paypal in June.
I've earned 15020 points from shopping on Fetch in June which equals $15.02.
I've earned 5,531 points from food shopping on Shop Kick in June which equals $22.12.
I've earned $25 in Target gift cards.
I've earned $7.44 back in a rebate from Snuggle(hopefully that one pans out).
I've earned 1021 points from food shopping on Swagbucks in June which equals $10.21(if they ever finish fixing my ticket).   

That's $271.24 in rebates(not counting the ShopKick/Swag Bucks/Fetch/Snuggle/Target gift cards)on $326.50 in grocery spending so in reality it's $125.06 spent after the Ibotta and Coupons dotcom rebate apps.

My savings percentage for last week was 32.82%(without "regular" Rite-Aid trips)for June and the monthly savings total for June comes in at 51.41%.(w/out R-A). 

Leftovers going into this week...some carnitas, 2 helpings of Collards and 1 hot dog.  It's going to be hot as blazes here for late June/early July so I really don't want to cook hot food(or eat it for that matter). bleh.

Here is this week's "food plan".....
1. Sunday--BLT Sandwiches(finally got ahold of a "good" tomato
2. Monday--Chicken Thighs, Zuke in Tomato Sauce, Rice
3. Tuesday--Chicken apple sausage, Sweet Potato Wedges, Green Beans or whatever
4. Wednesday--Salad, Flatbread Pizza
5. Thursday--more BLTs maybe"
6.  Friday--Salad, Whatever, it will be too hot to cook
7. Saturday--Cook-Out at Son's place(I'm not cooking)
You can tell I am not enthused about cooking this week, can't you?;-)

What do I need to buy to fix everything on this "sort of" menu? Not a single thing.  I hope to not grocery shop this week. 8-)))  Sluggy plans, God laughs....

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 should have made a loaf of french bread with half the dough, but made two huge homemade pizzas, so we have that goinginot the week, but daughter likley to take a fw pieces for lunch. Otehrwise, trying to eat down and then clean out the firidge and freezer in time for the holiday weekend. I know I have meatbals lurking and some frozen ravioli-probalby some gorund beef and chicken too. I'll play it by ear.

  2. Yes, my meal plan went according to plan! I'm a bit behind for this week.

  3. No great deals, but ads come out on Tuesday.
