My Menu Plan for This Week 9/17/18!

Menu Plan for this Week 9/10/18


We have ran into a couple of great warm/hot days so husband will be out smoking jerky today.  We love to take jerky on our Fall trips and he will make enough today to last us through till Winter.  I ran into a good deal yesterday at Meijer for whole chicken and pork chops.  He said he will have enough room for the chicken in the smoker but the pork chops he is not so sure.   I'll pan fry them on Wednesday if he can't fit them in.  I'm so glad he is helping with dinner today!  



Monday            Smoked chicken, fried cabbage. and mustard greens

Here is our smoked chicken:

The best chicken I've ever had!  


Tuesday            Smoked chicken fajitas (on a low carb wrap)- onions, tomatoes, and peppers from the garden

Wednesday       Pork chops, green beans and mustard greens

Thursday          Leftovers  (hopefully I'll be canning mustard greens today)
  
Friday               Spaghetti

Saturday           Pizza (either a casserole or a low carb pizza crust)

Sunday             Easy Hamburger Steak and a salad (I didn't cook this last week)

My Frugal Ways this Week 9/16/18!


Here are the ways  we've helped our household and saved this past week:


Zinnias in the garden

I'm still able to pick zinnias out of the garden for bouquets.   I think these are my favorite flowers.

Mustard Greens growing in the garden

I was able to pick a mess of mustard greens for dinner and a peck of tomatoes for sandwiches and salads.  The mustard greens were not quite big enough yet.  I hope to can them this week.

I picked apples with the grandchildren from the trees in the back yard.  This was our first harvest and there were exactly 8.  

I made sure to get a rain check for the shaving cream on sale for .99 at Kroger.  After I did that of course we were able to find more towards the end of the week. You can see my grocery shopping total for this week here.  

I filled out the Kroger survey and made sure to save my receipt and write down when to fill out the next one (you can only fill out one for fuel rewards every 7 days).

Used leftover chili instead of making a new recipe for the hot dog chili casserole in last week's menu.  This was a great short cut on a busy day.  

We sold 2 items we found beside the road for $30.  They sold within minutes on a Facebook group.  

My Goals for this next week:

Can Mustard Greens

What are the ways you saved this week?

My Grocery Shopping Total for this Week 9/15/18!


I want to keep our grocery budget at $100.00. I always forget to clarify how many people live here permanently and who we have her to babysit.   We have 3 people that live here (youngest daughter buys some of her groceries) and we babysit two grandchildren (although now they will be in school most days).  

We also want to eat healthy so our grocery bill is a little higher than we are used to.  Like my husband says, "our health is our wealth."


I'll start with my grocery shopping yesterday because frankly I didn't take pictures of my groceries all week.  I promise to do better next week.  

Kroger (Yesterday (Friday) shopping)
Did you get the All Detergent yesterday for .99 on the Fri/Sat deal?  I was able to buy 5 but I guess a lot of people had trouble.  I was so impressed to receive a email that said they had extended the coupon, if you were not able to redeem it, till the 22nd.  So nice of them!
