Menu Plan Monday and Grocery Shopping - Week of May 3rd, 2015

 
It's birthday week here - our twins turn 10 this week!  Where on earth does that time go? 
I swear I haven't aged a day since they were born. 
We also have the children's dance recital, a lot of company, and Grandparent's Day at the children's school! Plus teacher appreciation week at the school as well.  May is always busy, isn't it?
 
I went shopping on Saturday early evening and bought the food below for $61.05.  I saved approximately 10% ($6 and change) using store coupons.
 
 
 
Since the pictures a bit hard to see, here's what I bought:
 
1 40oz package of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
2 pork roasts (approximately 3.5lbs each)
2 cartons of ice cream
3 dry pints blackberries
1 box Cheez-It crackers
1 box store brand woven wheat crackers
2 bags salad greens
2 dry pints grape tomatoes
2 loaves bread
1 bunch (approximately 3 lbs) bananas
 
I only bought the blackberries and bananas this week since we had a mango and a cantaloupe leftover from last week, my parents brought several pears, and John brought home a pineapple, apples, clementines and enough grapes to sink a boat from church this week!
 
We have my parents here this whole week, my cousin Diane is coming on Thursday and staying through Sunday and my in-laws will be here Thursday through Saturday as well.  So we are feeding four adults and two 10 year olds 4 days this week and 7 adults and two 10 year olds the other three days!  Lots of food and lots of company!
