I went grocery shopping today, after I spent a few hours at school in what seemed like an unairconditioned room. I was hot and hungry by the time I got to the grocery store. That may have explained how the almond M&Ms ended up in the cart. And possibly how I let Heather talk me into the onion bagels with onion & chive cream cheese that weren't on the list. Dang!
In ended up going $22 over our grocery budget today. But while I was checking out the cashier asked if I'd do her grocery shopping cuz when she spends that much she only has three bags. I'll take that as a compliment.
Part of the reason I am able to stay anywhere near the grocery budget is the fact that I do have a list and a plan. I gave in to the bagels, but when Heather asked to have Chinese chicken salad for dinner this week I was strong and told her next week because I already have a plan.
This week we're having:
- orange crumbed baked chicken (new) with mashed potatoes & gravy
- chicken pot pie
- vegetable soup
- chicken quesadillas with corn salad
- sour cream chicken enchiladas
- pork chops & grilled corn
What's on your menu? I'm linking up with orgjunkie.com. Head on over to see what everyone else is cooking this week.
Tomorrow, I'll have a recipe for you.
