Menu Plan Monday - Another large grocery haul and what we're eating this week

 
So we had such a busy weekend, that John and I ran to the store on Friday evening - late enough that it was dark when we got home!  We spent far more than we had originally planned because there were some spectacular deals and we didn't want to miss them.  We definitely don't need much over the next few weeks now!  I bought enough that I had to take two photos!

10 cans 15oz canned vegetables @ $0.39ea = $3.90 (39-cents each!)
