Weekly Menu 3/29 - 4/3

Sorry for not posting the meal plan last week. You'll find out why on Wednesday. (it's nothing bad)

I can't believe that it's almost April. That means my 1st 29th birthday ;) is quickly approaching and I really have made no plans for it. I have a blogger friend who celebrates her birthday for multiple days and I keep saying that I'm going to do this one year, but then it sneaks right up on me before I've had a chance to plan out what in the world I'd like to do. All I've decided for this year is that I'd like to go to Pairings Bistro for dinner.

I was super productive yesterday. Tom had to get up at 5 for work and I got up not long later, spend an hour on the treadmill at the fitness center, came back and cleaned the entire apartment, showered and went grocery shopping at 2 stores and was home by 11 am. A lot of my Facebook friends have been sharing the deals they are getting with coupons while going to Shop Rite. My friend Shannon and I decided to check out just what everyone is bragging about...

...and we realized we're no where near extreme couponers. So I think the first thing you need to do is only buy the stuff you have coupons for, not the stuff they have on sale that you could use but don't really need. Going off that theory, I would have spent around $13 for 4 Febreeze car things, a Colgate 360 toothbrush, 3 cans of albacore tuna, 4 boxes of Kleenex, a bag of frozen mixed veggies and a bag of soft pretzel bites. Which is pretty good. Except I picked up other stuff because I have a grocery store problem.

I also have  Food Bank problem. As in, if I see people standing outside of the grocery store asking for food bank donations, I somehow end up spending between $20 and $50 for them because apparently I think it is solely my responsibility to feed the hungry. Which really isn't a bad thing, but when you're trying to keep a cheaper grocery budget it surely blows it out of the water.

Anyway, the meals for this week are as follows,

Saturday - pork and shiitake pot stickers, steamed veggies

Sunday - dijon pork roast, baked sweet potatoes, roasted asparagus

Monday - turkey burgers, parsnip fries, roasted asparagus

Tuesday - steamed shrimp, sauteed zucchini and squash 

Wednesday - chicken noodle soup 

Thursday - either a frittata if I have a lot of left over veggies, or eggs & turkey bacon 

Breakfast for this week will be sweet potato turkey hash and lunches will be chicken & onion pitas with cucumber-orange salad 

I'm spending this weekend making up some recipes for Easter so check back soon to see what those will be! And next Tuesday I'm sharing 20+ recipes to make for Easter.
