$40 Foodie & Menu

Menu for the week:

Sunday Night Dinner: Slow Cooker Chicken Tangine & Cous Cous
Monday: Breakfast for dinner (eggs, blueberry muffins, potatoes & bacon)
Tuesday: Barbecue Beef Sandwiches & coleslaw (slow cooked & stuck in the freezer a few weeks ago)
Wednesday: Homemade Black Bean Veggie Burgers & Carrot Slaw
Thursday: Mini Potato & Rosemary Frittatas & salad

Lunches are leftovers from dinner the night before. I'm usually okay eating something twice, but any more than that in one week and this SSG gets annoyed. Breakfasts will be a combo of cereal I have hanging out in the cupboard from a few weeks ago, muffins, yogurt and fruit.

Onto zee groceries!

Target Total $12.10

**Okay, a note about the Mike & Ikes. If you've been hangin' out around here for a while, you may remember my Chewy Spree infatuation? Yeah well we broke up. And I started hanging out with Mike & Ike. And now I love Mike & Ike. The little store at the bottom of my building sells Mike and Ike's for $0.90. Work BFF and I run down there everyday, which works out to $4.50 a week. These HUGE boxes, one of which has almost 4 days worth of Mike & Ike's sell at Target for $1.35. Ummm??? Hello? I LOVE when that happens. The rest of the stuff? Well that's just PMS talking I think.

Albertson's Total: $19.10

(Not pictured: $1.99 5 lb. bag of potatoes)

Total for the week is $31.20. I'm going to have to start thinking about what to do with this left over cash. $5 from last week and $8.80 from this week ... Le Creuset maybe you and I WILL be getting acquainted by this winter!

Hope you're all having a great weekend!

Love Mike & Ikes too. Especially the tropical flavors!! I've been on a Hot Tamales kick lately - yummy! said...

Well, if I had that much self control at the grocery store it would be a very good thing. Hows about including your recipe for the slow cooked chicken?!

I like how you separated your two food shots......Healthy and not so healthy!

Having said that, Where are the chewy sprees??
