Well, I was hoping I would be able to fill in with extras at the grocery this week because I’m going out of town, which means Mr. V is eating sandwiches and mac-n-cheese for dinner (I’m such a good wife, aren’t I?). But because I went to Publix for everything, that didn’t happen. Oh well! I did get some GREAT deals on meat Friday night at Kroger and some chicken breasts for $1.99/lb at Publix. Anyway, here’s the kind-of plan for this week …

Monday: Mr. V eats sandwich or soup
Tuesday: Mr. V eats macaroni and cheese (the blue box, y’all…)
Wednesday: church
Thursday: pork chops of some sort, whole wheat couscous, broccoli
Friday: Taco Bake
Saturday: Maple-Orange Chicken on a salad with almonds and orange sections
Sunday: leftovers

Not too exciting. Oh well!

Here’s what I got for my $40 this week.
