Since we did a Thanksgiving post on Thursday, I need to record my success or failure on eating well and eating from the freezer, pantry and root cellar. I am a little embarrassed that some of these meals will be seen by others. I was busy and just too tired to cook some nights.
I stated out the week by replenishing my Salad Dressing in the Refrig
Thursday Night we had Beef Burgundy over egg noodles $4.00
Friday night was dinner for 4. Roast pork left over from a party in September that was frozen, Bordalaise Sauce, Buttered Beets and fired canned potatoes. Beets and carrots were from garden. No real cost as meat had been accounted for before
Saturday night Garlic and Basil meat sauce over shells, green salad with Italian dressing and fresh made bread. Meat was $.75, Shells $.50, salad $.60 and bread $.20.
Sunday Corned Beef with cabbage, carrots and potatoes. Only cost was Corned Beef which was $6.50 but there are left overs.
Monday homemade TV dinners from previous left overs No cost
Tuesday and here is where it gets bad. I actually bought a loaf of bread. $1.99 ouch. Homemade soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches. Soup was practically free and cheese was a manager special at $.99 for 12 oz. of sliced American Cheese.
Wednesday was a repeat of Tuesday.
All and all not a bad week. There were no managers specials this week except milk again for $1.99 for a gallon which I passed on. Did get a pound of bacon on sale for $3.50 which is great for here.
