Shopping + this week’s meal planning

10-27-aldi-petes-shopping

Stopped at ALDI and then across the street at Pete’s this morning… mostly because I really needed wanted a new mini muffin tin, lol. This was basically couponless shopping except for a little cash back app business, but now I’m good to go on dinners for the rest of the week.

ALDI

Tortilla chips, $1.19.
Corn tortillas, $.33.
Fit & Active low-ish carb flatbread, $2.29.
3 lb Gala apples, $1.29.

14 pc knock off lock & lock, $7.99. Will see if it works as well!
Mini muffin tin, $3.49.

Paid $26.39 with $1.00 back for a net cost of $25.39 — but $12.37 of that was kitchenware + high tax, rather than food. :)

Pete’s

Organic romaine hearts, $1.00.
10 Idaho potatoes, $1.00.
4 onions, $.40. Will get $.25 back from Shrink.
Grape tomatoes, $1.69.

Poked around my freezer this morning

turkey

I need to make room in my freezer stat for Zaycon chicken next week… Yes, it’s not Thanksgiving yet, but this morning I pulled out this big turkey I’d picked up on clearance at Ultra Foods this past Easter. It’s now thawing in my fridge so it’s ready to cook up on Saturday.

Meal Planning week of 10/27/14

So here’s the meal plan for the week:

  • Monday: Leftover Smoky Chili I made yesterday, served over baked potatoes (these $.10 Pete’s potatoes from today). Monday is after school activities day where we’re not home til 6, so I try to plan leftovers! Will just bake up the potatoes in the toaster oven this afternoon so they’re ready to reheat when we get home.
  • Tuesday: Salsa chicken in the crock pot — Meaning I can pull another pack of meat out of the freezer and make more room tonight. This will be on the tortillas & wraps I got at ALDI today, plus I’ll make guacamole with the avocados & tomatoes.
  • Wednesday: Leftover salsa chicken.
  • Thursday: Salad Bar Thursday (see below) with the romaine from Pete’s + odds and ends.
  • Friday: Halloween — we usually go out after trick or treating, it’s a thing…
  • Saturday: Butterflied Roast Turkey. Still pondering sides, but will see what’s on sale in the new ads this week. Have broccoli in the fridge, should have leftover salad, will have potatoes left…
  • Saturday overnight: Stock in the Crockpot with the turkey bones.
  • Sunday: Some kind of soup with the stock — maybe Kicked Up Turkey Sausage Slow Cooker Soup since I still have a cheap Butterball dinner sausage from Jewel last week and half a pack of wild rice in the cupboard. (I’ll have to shop again sometime this week for spinach, celery, but will wait for the new sales on Wed. and see.)
  • Monday: Leftover turkey & leftover soup (detect a trend? lol)

Oh, and what’s Salad Bar Thursday?

salad-bar-2

Put out a big bowl of lettuce and various dressings, then cut up whatever is handy in the fridge for toppings so everyone can assemble their own plate. On Thursday I’ll have mushrooms, bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, lunch meat, tomatoes, avocado, croutons, sliced almonds, Craisins, cheese, green onions, and whatever else is left in the fridge and looks tempting. On the side: Probably strawberries, apple slices. Probably not the Caprese salads in the above pic, alas. ;)

So what’s your meal plan this week?

Mine’s more clear out the freezer than anything this week, but takes advantage of some of the produce sales. How about yours?
