OK so I am confused. Guess I didn't know yesterday was Thursday so will post a day late. Seems it has been a busy week as usual cooking but very few pictures.
Thursday night's dinner was liver, onions, bacon and baked potato for 1. Liver $.73. 1/2 # bacon $.45. Only 1/3 was used for supper. The other 2/3 made breakfast 2 mornings for my brother.
Friday night was left over chicken cacciatori the only cost was 5 oz. of noodles.
Saturday night was fish and chips for 5. There was also carrots, cole slaw and butternut squash. It seems when I have company I over cook. There was enough fish and chips left for DB's supper Monday night and enough fish to freeze for one more meal for 2. Total cost $4.25. The Monday night was free.
Sunday night we had pork chops, boiled potatoes and gravy, and cole slaw. $2.00 and there was enough pork left over to make a TV dinner.
Tuesday night hot dogs, sauerkraut and mashed potatoes. Cost $.60. Some of the sauerkraut and mashed potatoes were put in the pork TV dinner.
Wednesday night meat loaf, mashed potatoes and carrots. Cost $2.75 but watch for that meat loaf to reappear in the coming week.
Groceries were a little steep this week as I did my monthly shopping to restock the pantry. It seems we were out of a lot of things. Also ground beef was on sale for $2.49 a pound so can never have too much of that inthe freezer it can be used in so many ways.
Total groceries $54.00

For DB's morning snack I make it into a chocolate pie with 3 squares of graham crackers made into crumbs with 1 T butter. Add one serving of pudding. This adds 1 bread and 1 fat exchange.
Cost of the entire batch of pudding $1.12. Not sure on the pie crust.
I guess better late than never but am sure most have already visited our host, The Gardener of Eden
