Meals with Deals

by GettingFreedom on March 21, 2011

Another weekend flew right by me!  We had another crazy weekend, but I wouldn’t trade it for the world! {I’ll share more on that later this week!} :)

I planned my menu for this week, last week, when I realized that Monday was here–and I didn’t have a plan!  Since we get paid bi-weekly, I shop and menu plan bi-weekly to keep me out of the grocery stores.  This has saved us a lot of money in return.  I occasionally will pop in our local grocer to check their mark down cooler, now that I’ve found it!  I’m still working on eating up food from the freezer.  Who knew I had that much food in there?!

Enough with that, here’s what we’re eating up this week::


  • HM Granola with HM Yogurt and dried fruit.
  • Oatmeal.
  • Scrambled Egg Whites with bacon and salsa.


  • Black Bean and Cheese Quesadillas
  • Homemade Hummus with crackers, and veggie sticks
  • Pizza Pockets
  • Taco Pockets {experiement, hope to share recipe soon!}


  • Sunday: Appetizer Bar
  • Monday: Sloppy Joes.  Corn.  Salad with Homemade Russian Dressing {$5; 6 servings}
  • Tuesday: BBQ Ribs (on sale for 99¢/#!).  Grilled Potatoes and Onions.  Baked Beans. {$6; 8 servings}
  • Wednesday: Grilled Salmon Filets. Mock Olive Garden Salad. Steamed Veggies. {$8; 5 servings}

Total Cost of Dinners: $30.25 Average Cost Per Serving: .82¢
