So this week my mailbox was pretty empty. I was able to get a free 8X10 print from Walgreens, a Steelers towel, and a free local newspaper.
Weekly Shopping Trip
I decided to go grocery shopping today instead of waiting till tomorrow. I did pretty well, spending only $49.58! I bought a few things that weren't necessary and some things that weren't groceries. Selah destroyed my receipt so I wasn't able to look at it. Here are the items I can remember and the prices are guesstimates:
Bread (2) $1.30
Christmas Tree Cakes $1.50
Tomato Paste (2) $0.30
Zzz Quil $7.78
Cheese Puffs $1.98
Sketties (2) $0.78
Cream of Mushroom Soup (2) $0.76
Orange Juice $1.98
BBQ Sauce $3
Hot Dog Buns $2
Hot Dogs $0.98
Granola Bars $2
Chili (2) 0.76
Bag of Ghirardelli Chocolates $4.95 (free after coupon)
Chili Mix $0.98
Once again I'm not sure on the prices, but they are around the right price. If you notice I didn't buy meat. I stocked up last week when Food Lion had the meat on clearance.
This week I plan on making:
(made from the whole chicken I cooked, pulled off the bone, then froze)
(1pound deer meat, 1 can of tomato paste, 1 can beans, 2 cans of chili, chili mix & whatever else I throw in)
(Chicken Voila $3.48)
Boston Butt with mashed potatoes and a veggie.
Will have tons of leftovers! I smother it in Lawry's Seasoning Salt and cook on low all day in crock pot
Last week we had:
Chicken Nuggets and Mac and Cheese
Crock Pot Roast (my roast was on sale from Food Lion) greens, corn recipe is below - http://bubblecrumb.blogspot.com/2011/02/crock-pot-pot-roast.html
