Menu week of 10/23/10
well this week I had $60 to spend and a list that totaled $110. Well I worked real hard on it and got it down to $70. So off I went, first to the Bi-Rite. I only spent $9 there and it was all reduced items. They had a ton of marked down items and it was hard to not just grab them up and stick to my list, and my budget. Next I headed over to the Dollar General Market. This is great! For those who don't have one, it's like a reg. $GM but with a grocery store attached. Real good prices as well, and they have been in the habit of printing out $5 off coupons on your receipt, on a sale of $25 or more. That is not a problem here - LOL It is like getting the food tax free! So I actually had $50 to spend there, not $45, cool. Well I did it and still had $5 left over for hubbys gas tank : ) I even splurged on about $5 of seasonal items. I got a cute gingerbread man spoon rest for $1 (I am big into those, gingerbread men, for my holiday decorating) and a Snowflake/snowman shower curtain w/matching hooks for $4. Guess I am going to dress up my powder room for the holidays this year : ) On my way out I noticed they had their traditional cinnamon brooms out. I have been buying those for years, when they were $3, I stopped the last two years when they went up to $5. Although on of those years I received one as a b-day gift. Today they were marked $4. I will have to think on this and see if I have enough next week. I love to hang these on my pantry door and make my whole dinning room and living room smell good.
Here is a look at our menu this week:
Sat. ~ Birthday party
Sun. ~ Green beans and ham casserole w/ mashed yams.
Mon. ~ Beef and broccoli (crock pot) over rice
Tue. ~ Corn and shrimp chowder w/ home made soft garlic bread sticks
