Menu Plan Monday - Week of January 10, 2016

Homemade French Bread - I think I posted this before but I LOVE this picture!

We spent a good chunk of our money for the month this weekend stocking up on eggs (we bought two dozen) and canned diced tomatoes (we were totally out so we bought six cans). 

In total we spent $36 for groceries this week.  That puts us just under our pie-in-the-sky budget of $50 (we've spent $48 and change) but still keeps us in the $80 that I'm hoping for this month. 

What did we buy this last week:
* 2 dozen eggs  (I can't remember the exact price of these but they were the lowest we've seen in quite a while!)
* 6 cans (15oz) diced tomatoes ($0.68 each)
* 3 cans (15oz) chicken noodle soup  ($0.75 each)
* 1 bunch celery $1.49
* Apples ($1.29/lb)
* Pears ($0.99/lb)
* Bananas ($0.59/lb)
* Salad greens (spinach and baby greens mix) ($2)
* 2 3-packs of disposable razors  ($5.49 for two)
* 1lb turkey sausage ($2.50)
* 2 boxes breakfast cereal ($2 each)

We ended up eating a couple of different things than what were on the menu last week - I made a corn and potato chowder one night that we didn't have on the menu at all and we had spaghetti instead of the stir fry because John really didn't want rice that night.  I didn't spend anything extra or buy anything else to do that.
