August 21: Low Spend Grocery Month Challenge

Brunch this morning was scrambled eggs with cheese and some avocado for me. West had scrambled eggs and a biscuit. Hubby had a roast beef sandwich.

We had the same thing for dinner that we had last night;KFC chicken and sides.

Here is our menu for next week. I ran it by West and Hubby to make sure that we can follow it.

Saturday: Hot Dogs, chips and pickles

Sunday: Chicken, mashed potatoes, spinach

Monday: Chef’s salads; sandwich for West

Tuesday: Breakfast for dinner: waffles & bacon

Wednesday: McDonald’s take out 

Thursday: Grilled Cheese and soup

Friday: Roasted Boneless Leg of Lamb with sauce, baby potatoes, and a veggie ( My son and daughter-in-law will be joining us for dinner when they come to pick up West)

I hope you all have a great weekend. I plan on doing some meat shopping in the morning. West and I may wash the car too.

August 15: Low Spend Grocery Month Challenege and Menu Plan

I did not leave the house today. So no gasoline or money was spent. 

Here is our menu plan for the next week:

Saturday: Turkey Club Salads

Sunday: Hamburgers and French Fries, tomatoes and cucumbers

Monday: Melt in your mouth Chicken Breasts, Broccoli

Tuesday: Spaghetti and Meatballs with a side salad(West’s favorite)

Wednesday: Leftovers 

Thursday: Hot Dogs, dill pickles, and a side salad

Friday: Homemade Pepperoni Pizza

As you can probably surmise, our menu is made up of things that a 10 year old boy will eat. These are all favorites that West loves. Next week’s menu will be geared around his tastes also.

That is breakfast pictured above. I have to eat the leftover broccoli up this week. Hubby had a ham sandwich.  

For dinner tonight, we had our turkey club salads. I love black olives so I added those to mine. I added some Skinny Girl Poppy seed salad dressing to mine. Hubby likes Caesar dressing on his. 

Tonight I will be going to bed early. My son and West will be here early in the morning for breakfast and then West will stay with us for two weeks. I am so looking forward to having fun entertaining him.

August 7: Low Spend Grocery Month Challenge

I woke up at 4:30am and could not get back to sleep so I got up. I guess my body was telling me that 7 and 1/2 hours was enough sleep. I love early mornings because I get a lot done including my exercise.

Before enjoying my bullet proof coffee, I took the ground turkey out of the freezer to thaw.

Breakfast was another Keto wrap with bacon and eggs for me. Hubby had a turkey and bacon sandwich.

I took a return back to the store today and ran one other errand for Hubby while I was out.

Hubby is spending a lot of time outdoors today cutting the heads off dead flowers. The landscape service does this but Hubby was looking for something to do outdoors because it is the perfect day.

Here is our next week’s menu plan:

Sat. Air fried chicken drumsticks with Frank’s sauce

Sun.To Be Determined ?

Mon. Hot Italian sausage sandwiches & a veggie

Tues. Take out? Possibly Applebee’s?

Wed. Fish sticks or Salmon with  side salad

Thurs. Grilled filet mignon, FF’s, & a veggie

Fri. Leftovers  

This is how I like my summer menu’s – simple and easy. Notice how the fish sticks keep showing up. I really want Hubby to eat them and give me some space in the freezer.

We love our air fryer and we especially like doing drumsticks or wings in it. I usually make a sauce of Frank’s red hot sauce and butter. I just heat it on the stove and meld the flavors all together. But I think on Saturday, we will try one of the new Frank’s sauces that I purchased this week.

Hubby will likely eat his sausage in a bun. I will probably smother mine with peppers and onions and eat it bunless.  

We have not done takeout in a long time. A night off from cooking sounds good to me. I will just pick it up curbside.

I love it when Hubby grills filet mignon. He grills it just exactly as I like it (medium) and it is always superb.

I have left room for two leftover nights this week. If there are no leftovers, I will decide what we will have and let you know on that day’s post.

Dinner tonight was different than on the menu. Hubby wanted a taco wrap. So I cooked ground turkey with taco seasoning and a little bit of chili powder. Then we had our choice of lettuce, onions, a cut up tomato from my son’s garden, black olives,  shredded cheddar cheese, taco meat, and sour cream. I had a little of everything. This was delicious especially in my Keto wrap which is pictured here before I wrapped it.

Being Friday night, Hubby will be hunting for sports on TV, probably golf. I am going to read. 

I hope you all have a good evening.
