Better Late Than Never

Hey y'all! Happy Monday Wednesday! This post is a little late but I've been busy doing nothing. Literally. And it's felt ahh-mazing :) Monday I took a personal day off from work since I had off Tuesday for Election Day {one perk of being a State employee - the random state "holidays"}. Monday I had lunch with a close friend and did nothing the rest of the day, it was pure bliss. Tuesday the hubby and I both had off, since we're both state employees, and we spent the day window shopping. Love days like that!

So needless to say, the menu plan is a little late! I did a quick trip to the grocery store today after work and I forgot my coupons so I was fully planning on blowing my self imposed $60 budget, but I am glad to say I came out only spending $56.28 {after saving $12.10 with my Kroger card}. So, this is what we have planned for this week!

Dawn: Sour dough english muffins with banana's and peanut butter
Brian: Banana and OJ

Dawn: Oven roasted turkey sandwhiches, graham crackers, goldfish crackers and grapes
Brian: Ham sandwhiches, chilli cheese ruffles, grapes, fruit snacks, and cheese on cheese crackers

Monday: We had grilled cheese and soup
Tuesday: We used as our date night since mother's day is this upcoming weekend
Wednesday: Spagetti and garlic bread
Thursday: Grilled bratwurst with grilled peppers and onions & grilled asparagus
Friday: Cheddar stuffed meatloaf, mashed potatoes and green beans
Saturday: Grilled pork chops, mac-n-cheese and grilled corn
Sunday: Out celebrating my mother in law

Have you been sticking with your meal plans? Have you started using coupons? Are you trying a new recipe this week?


  1. Sounds like a yummy week! Especially the Speghetti!! mmmmm! We usually do stick with our meal plan pretty well. I'm glad you and B had a good time on your day off together!
