Menu Plan Monday - Week of March 27th, 2011


I think I live in a time warp.  One minute it's Thursday and then *poof* it's the following Monday!  Where, oh where, does the time go?

We've done a fantastic job of sticking to the grocery budget of $40 per week lately.  I'm very pleased with that.  We spent $37 this week and that means we have $43 for next week.  I'm confident we can do it since our house is overflowing with food  - at least that's the way it seems!  We got a lot of fruit and vegetables this week on really good deals so we're eating heavy in those areas this week.   Included in those are 2 pints each of blackberries and blueberrys, 1 lb strawberries, a melon, 2 containers of baby portobello mushrooms, a head a broccoli, a 2lb bag of salad, 6lbs of oranges and 10lbs of potatoes!   I think we're good for a while with those things!
