My Menu Plan for the Rest of the Week 10/15/19!




Exhaustion after a 10 hour ride home has made it that type of day.  Ok, what should have been a 10 hour trip was really an 8 hour trip.  I looked over a lot and realized he was going 80 most of the time.  I didn't say a word.  I drive too but I don't last too long and I usually obey the speed limit, ha ha.  We are home though and there are clothes in the washer and beans in the crockpot.  

Listen, this is how I cheat on dinner these crazy days.  We bought some Luck's pinto beans while we were down there, so I threw three cans in the crockpot and added a big tablespoon of bacon grease.  I usually cook them for 5 or 6 hours on high.  I throw the cans in the recycle box and no one notices the difference!   Half of dinner is ready!  

So, here is what will be on the dinner table the rest of the week (I don't want to eat out for awhile):

Tuesday             Soup beans, fried cornbread, and  Fried cabbage. Ok, that cabbage is still out there in the garden and listen it was freezing last night.  I've never let it go this long but let's say we will have cabbage if it's still ok.  

Wednesday         Spaghetti -grandkids will be here and they will love that.

Thursday             Pork Chops, coleslaw, sliced tomatoes, and mustard greens.  

Friday                  Leftovers (I'll make enough)

Saturday               Hot dogs and coney island sauce

Sunday                 Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans.  


What do you have planned for the table this week?

My Frugal Ways This Past Week 10/13/19!

Not much happening this past week in the frugal area.  We did decide to make a quick trip to KY this weekend to visit his mother.  I took gift cards I had bought for restaurants with me. I had been saving them for this kind of trip. I was able to buy these gift cards with some of my affiliate money I've earned.   Thank you all so very much!  It's so helpful. 




Before we left I went to JCPenny to use my $25.00 gift certificate I bought with Swagbucks.  I also had my coupon for $15 off $15 when you use your credit card ( we pay it off every month).  I bought a large jar of bare minerals makeup and used the $25.00 gift certificate.  Total cost was $21.00.  I also bought a pair of warm up pants and a blouse for $2.00 that were on clearance after the $15 coupon.  The next day I decided to go to another JCPenny near me and look at their clearance.  I bought a nice blouse for $1.11 after using my $10 reward money.  Total spent approximately $24.00!  

My Garlic had all clumped together in the spice bottle.  It was probably from the heat and humidity that we had during our quick summer.  Instead of throwing it away I put it in the blender and it's ready to use again.  

We gathered seeds from the greasy green beans (heirloom) we planted.  We didn't eat any of these beans, we just grew them mainly for more seeds.  A half row of these beans grew enough for us to make 3 or 4 rows next summer.  

Husband changed the oil in both vehicles saving us close to $100.00.  He bought the oil at an estate sale.  

I got a great deal on pistachios This past week.  Great snack for the trip.

This is what was on our dinner table before we left:

Monday                  Steak and onion sandwiches  (low carb tortillas, sub buns for him)

Tuesday                  Lasagna (used the rest of sub buns for garlic bread)

Wednesday             Leftovers

Thursday                Getting ready to leave we thought about eatinout but really with 4 days of eating out in our future we knew we would be sick of it.  I got a canned ham out of my storage and put brown sugar on it then stuck it into the oven.  Opened up a can of baked beans and warmed them up on the stove.  With fresh tomatoes we called it dinner!  

I bought a couple of these canned hams from Aldi's for ER storage and this was a great way to try them out before we bought more.  It was not too bad and it's even better in a sandwich.  Not quite sure I'll buy more or not.  Really tasted like glorified spam.

Our Grocery Shopping Deal this Week 10/12/19!



My grocery shopping this past week was kind of ho hum.  Nothing exciting about milk and bread.  Then, I went to Rite Aid and found a great deal on this 16 oz bag of Wonderful Pistachios.  They were marked $5.97 (or very close to it).  The receipt is long gone but what a deal.  As you can see, we opened them up as quick as we got them!  So much for saving them for later.
