Saturday morning is turning out to be my best time for menu planning. I gather up my menu planning Recipe Binder and lay it on the kitchen counter. I look in the refrigerator and cabinets to see what I have on hand I usually buy groceries on Friday afternoon, so I already have a few meals in mind using what I bought.
Look! Two whole weeks have been filled in on my menu planning sheet for January!
Here's the menu for this week:
Saturday: Veal Stew with potatoes, carrots and onions made in the crockpot.
Sunday: Lunch eaten out; banana and peanut butter sandwiches and chips for supper
Monday: BBQ Chicken Legs; macaroni and cheese; garden peas
Tuesday: Grilled bologna and cheese sandwiches and chips
Wednesday: Baked pasta with pasta sauce and cheese; green beans cooked with ham
Thursday: Roast Chicken Breasts, mashed potatoes and corn on the cob
Friday: Pan Fried Steak, potatoes, leftover veggies
I have really enjoyed this small crock pot I received as a Christmas gift. Its just the right size to cook for two people, which is what I need to learn to do.
My deal of the week:
4 Boxes of Special K Cereal and a gallon of orange juice for $3.42.
Food Lion has Special K Cereal on sale for $2.50 a box. If you buy 4 boxes you get a gallon of orange juice free. I printed out 2 buy one get one free Special K Coupons by going TO THIS SPECIAL K WEBSITE. You have to register, but at the end you can print out the coupons. After you print out the first one, hit the "back" button a couple of times to print the second coupon.
At Food Lion, when you use a buy one get one free coupon, the cash register deducts the regular price of the item and not the sales price. I didn't realize this until I got home and saw it on the receipt. So the 4 boxes of cereal were a total of $3.42, after the coupons were deducted, and I also got the free gallon of orange juice.
This deal is good through tomorrow.
