Menu Plan Monday

I’m home sick. Not being able to breathe is taking its toll! Enjoying the rest today.

I’m not planning for any further than Thursday, because both (!) sides of our family are coming in for Libbie’s baby dedication. Who knows what kind of craziness will ensue!

Monday: Steak Stir-Fry
Tuesday: Creole Shrimp and Grits (modified to use frozen, already flavored shrimp)
Wednesday: church
Thursday: Quick Baked Chicken (like a chicken shepherd’s pie)

I need to go lay back down, so I will skip the detailed list to tell you, yes I came in under my $40 budget. Because of fewer meals and manager’s specials, I was able to stockpile some good lunch things and buy the items to make a meal to take to one of Mr. V’s colleagues who had a baby recently.

There were some great deals in Kroger’s $10 for 10 special this week. As always, you don’t have to buy 10 to get the deal–1 is $1. I got Quaker rice cakes and Suave deoderant for free because I had coupons that doubled. And I got some Bird’s Eye steamfresh veggies for .30 each, because of .35 coupons that doubled. Check your coupons against the ads to see what great deals you can find!
