OK, I have to admit that I came home from the grocery store gleeful and told Mr. V, “I won the grocery game!” I don’t subscribe to the real Grocery Game, but you know I do my own coupon-sale configurations to get great deals each week. This week I got two bags of Kraft shredded cheese for 32 cents. TOTAL. I nearly did a happy dance.
As I was unloading groceries, I got the call from my dad that my grandpa’s funeral will be Sunday, so I don’t think we’ll be home Fri-Sun nights. So these meals will probably be moved to next week, but here’s what I was planning.
Monday: grilled sandwiches, fruit salad, tortilla chips
Tuesday: shrimp skewers, rice, broccoli
Wednesday: church (spaghetti)
Thursday: burritos (OAMC)
Friday: BBQ Chicken Cornbread Pizza (from Rachael Ray 365, extremely similar to this recipe except the topping is ground chicken, red bell pepper, and barbecue sauce, topped with cheddar)
Saturday: Cheddar Butter Burgers (OAMC), onion rings, corn on the cob
Sunday: sausage, eggs, grits
OAMC = Once a Month Cooking
I met my $25/week budget ($40 week – money spent on OAMC) and found some wonderful deals this week! Here’s what I got.
2 ears corn
Bertolli oven meals (sale + $1.25 coupon)
4 shrimp skewers (on sale $10/10, used $1 off fresh meat coupon from Publix baby club)
2 Healthy Choice meals
Publix American singles (penny item)
wheat kaiser rolls
2 pkg. Kraft cheese (on sale 3/$5, used 2 $1 off coupons from coupons.com, used $1 off dairy item coupon from Publix baby club–Kroger takes competitor coupons. Total–32 cents for both!)
1/2 gallon milk
8 oz. tomato sauce
1 red bell pepper
Lysol toilet bowl cleaner (sale + coupon = 82 cents)
2 Jiffy corn muffin mixes\
