Is it really November already? Then again, I should have guessed since the stores were putting out Christmas stuff before the dust had settled on Halloween...
We stuck with the menu plan last week, mostly because any extra shopping was out of the question. It's weeks like these when you see the real value of stockpiling - my total spending on groceries was about $23 for TWO WEEKS, because we had nearly everything we needed.
This week we have a little more breathing room, but I'm still trying to thin out the freezer stash so I can defrost the darn thing! Our fridge also decided to announce its slow and impending death, so our landlord will be replacing it this month but in the meantime I have to try keeping as little as possible in there. That means smaller meals and stuff that can go in the basement freezer in single-serve portions.
Here's our table for the week, don't forget to visit I'm an Organizing Junkie for tons of menus and recipe ideas!
monday - Corndogs (Freebie from Schwann's!), veggies ($0.80 for 4 servings)
tuesday - Hamburgers, tater tots, veggies ($2.95 for 4 servings)
wednesday - Bee Rocks, mixed veggie ($5.80 for 4 servings plus 8 for the freezer)
thursday - Pizza Roll Ups, fresh veggies and ranch dip ($6.20 for 4 servings plus 4 portions in the freezer)

saturday - Black Bean Quesadillas, sliced avocado ($4.70 for 4 servings)
