My Menu Plan for this Week 6/24/19!

A Way to a Man's Heart is to make some Chicken and Dumplings!







Yesterday we had some grilled  chicken leftover so I thought I would make a fast chicken and dumplings dinner.    I cut up the grilled  chicken into bite size pieces and added about a quart and half of water then added a can of cream of chicken soup.   I then followed the rest of the recipe and made up the dumplings.    It was so quick and dinner was done in 30 minutes.   We were in leftover heaven! 

One warning though ...if you don't clean your pot right away it becomes like cement with any of the leftovers.   I let mine soak over night and now we are good ha ha!!





What I plan to have on the dinner table this week:


Monday               Hot dogs and chili sauce

Tuesday               Hamburgers (and potato chips for grandchildren)

Wednesday          Stuffed peppers

Thursday              Leftovers

Friday                   Easy Stuffed Peppers and green beans

Saturday               Eating out

Sunday                 Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops and a salad



What's on your menu this week?

My Frugal Ways this Past Week 6/23/19!


It's a beautiful day here with the promise of lots of sun until some rain comes in tonight.   The best thing that has happened in my garden this week are my blooming roses!   They put a smile on my face every time I go by.  




Here are the ways I've saved this past week:

The kids received a free drink at Biggby Coffee from the library when they registered for the summer reading program.  I found the coupon at the bottom of the bag, so we used it this past week.  They each got a cup filled to the top with reddi whip with sprinkles, which they thought was the best think ever.    

We sold an item on Facebook.  I think we have finally sold all the big items after clearing out half the garage.



I made a loom knit hat.  Well I made a couple ...still working on perfection. I used a 50% off coupon to buy the looms at Joanne's.




I bought strawberries at Meijer for a great deal this past week.  You can see that post here.  I've made strawberry jelly yesterday and Strawberry muffins this morning for breakfast.

Vegetable Garden Update:



The garden is still very wet.   We've had three days of some sunshine and no rain, so maybe it can be saved.  There is hope!  Both the white half runner and rattlesnake green bean seed came up, which was a big surprise to us.   We just knew all the seeds were already rotted.  There is no sign of the potato plants or beets yet.   With the fear of sinking and never getting out, I'm not able to step in the garden right now so the weeds are rampant.  



The deer have found the corn.   I just planted a few plants from the greenhouse for fun.  They took off most of the tops. They also took off the tops of half a row of green beans.

I harvested lettuce and green onions from the grow bag.  I also used some rosemary, thyme, and chives from the herb garden for cooking this past week.  





My goals for this week:


Start making crafts for the fair.

Post two book reviews (catching up)

My Grocery Shopping Deal this Week 6/22/19!







My sweetest deal this week was strawberries!  Meijer had them on sale for $1.88 for 2 quarts so I'm making a little more strawberry jam this morning.   I was lucky to get these, they have ran out everyday I've been there. 

Funny thing happened,  right beside the sale on two quarts there were just 1 quart packages 2 for $4.00.  A couple was getting some and I was so surprised.  I had to open my big mouth and ask did they know that they could get 2 quarts for less than half that price.   Now I'm not sure if they couldn't do the math or if they thought the berries that were in the quart size packages were better grade berries.  I'm choosing to think the later one.  They did end up getting the bigger size (I made sure to leave them a couple).

What good deals did you buy at the grocery store this last week?
