Meal Plan for 5/23-5/29

Last week I vowed to not enter a grocery store~my way of boycotting the ridiculous prices that seem to be everywhere.

I'll have you know...I am weak.

Without a plan, I entered the most expensive grocery store in our area. I thought I'd just run in a grab a couple of items and hopefully get a chance to see one of my daughters, who works at the Starbucks kiosk.

Didn't happen.

Not only did I purchase some really senseless items, I even went so far as to buy not 1, but 2 deli chickens. And it was my dear daughter's day off. 

Oh, the shame.

This week, I have a plan. And I'm taking back-up in the form of my Mister. Of course, I usually end up spending more when he's with me, but he will at least be able to keep me from throwing myself to the floor in protest.

Or, he can just wipe my tears after my tantrum. Either way, I'm covered.

And, speaking of my Mister...he is having surgery on Thursday. We would really appreciate your prayers for a quick recovery. Thank you!

Here's what's cookin' this week...

Scrambled eggs, bacon
sandwiches (kid's choice)
Sloppy Joe's, tater tots, green salad

Refried bean dip, tortilla chips


Egg Salad Sandwiches, raw carrots w/ Ranch dip

Simply Soaked Oatmeal w/ blueberries
Salmon Dip, tortilla chips, raw veggies w/ Ranch dip

Scrambled eggs, deer sausage

Grilled cheeseburgers with all the fixings!

I think the menu sounds fabulous, and I'm going to check out some of those recipes. And those prices at the grocery store...they ARE ridiculous. Today was shopping day and I couldn't BELIEVE how things are going up, up, up!! I'm with you - let's boycott!!
