last weeks menu

I have been waiting all month for Staples to come out with their customer appreciation coupon so I could buy some printer ink and I almost missed it. I saw it yesterday and it expired yesterday. 10$ off your purchase. They usually have one of these about every 3 months, but they used to be for 12% off the purchase. Got all 4 ink colors for $59.36 - 10% - 10.20 from reward rebate from last time I bought ink. Total 46.57 plus 10% back from reward program towards next purchase.

Since my food plan is basically to stock up whenever I get good prices and then fill in with fresh stuff as needed I mostly eat out of my pantry/freezer. I don't really plan meals for the week, just for a day or two ahead of time.

This is what I had last week. Right now I have a lot of cheap cereal .50/1.50 box so breakfast is cereal, milk and fruit

Lunch is either a hot dog or a peanut butter sandwich, with raw veggies and a piece of fruit.

Sunday - pasta and garlic bread. I made a big pot of my chunky spagetti sauce and took some to my mom's to have with rigatoni pasta. Froze about 9 more meals worth of sauce. The stuff I took to mom's made enough for the 3 of us, plus enough for all 3 to eat another day. Mom also supplied garlic bread with pasta.

Monday - baked potato with light honey mustard salad dressing. green beans with garlic and walnuts sauteed in butter.

Tuesday - leftover pasta and garlic bread

Wednesday - roasted chicken breast, Uncle Ben's wild rice with celery and carrots chopped up into it, steamed frozen veggies marinated in a light honey mustard salad dressing. Veggies were green beans, cauliflower, carrots and zucchini.

Thursday - ham and beans - leftover from the freezer and leftover rice from Wednesday

Friday - Village Inn breakfast, eggs, bacon, hashbrowns, pancakes.

Saturday - chicken salad and bread. I had fixed two roast chicken breasts on Wednesday and I made the salad then, Chicken, celery, grapes, and walnuts in mayonaise. The cold chicken 3 days later was better than the warm chicken on the day it was cooked.

Finished reading my book Wild Card by Lora Leigh. Romance. Very good.
