I'm so thankful for my Sunday cooking, because it's been a busy day so far. I ran some errands and stopped at Meijer for some odds & ends. I cashed in 3 bags of pop cans to the tune of $20.40. Paid $17.01 OOP and earned $2.50 Ibotta for Breakstone doubles. DS loves it. Do you see how I'm trying all kinds of things to keep my grocery budget low this month? I didn't even stop at Wags for a double dip Dove deal. I have points to pay for it, but I don't need any more Dove. On to the meal plan.
Monday : Slow cooker spaghetti & meatballs, big salad
Tuesday : Chicken pot pie, salad, veggies
Wednesday : Same as Monday
Thursday : Same as Tuesday
Friday : Mexican food or pizza from the freezer
Dessert : Haagen Dasz ice cream. I bought a box last time I was at Sams and it is oh so good!
Lunch : Something from the freezer (chicken, frikkadel, burritos) with salad
Breakfast : Pineapple carrot muffins, french toast (we need to finish that chocolate brioche bread), eggs/omelets, cereal, toast
There's always a variety of fresh fruit & veggies available. Same with yogurt.
The Italians might cringe, but I add the pasta to the slow cooker just before everything's fully cooked. I figured the pots already warm, so why waste more gas by cooking the pasta on the stove.
I like to buy ready rolled pie crusts at Aldi, but I've found the last few ones have broken in half in the freezer (could be because I remove it from the box before placing in freezer). I pulled out a whole one yesterday, but it was all soggy by the time it thawed. Yuck! Has anyone else had this problem with Aldi pie crust? I just bought Pillsbury ones at Meijer. It costs twice as much, but I didn't want to make a special stop at Aldi just to save $2. My time is more valuable than that. I'll use the leftover pie filling to make individual pies for DS.
I'm now wondering if I can have my dessert early. Nobody will know if I eat my ice cream now....lol. I've got ice cream on my mind :)
Have a wonderful week peeps!
