And ... Week 13 of Hubby's unemployment ...
The grocery shopping last week was pretty minimal, and actually, all of it was on the Sunday before Labor Day for the BBQ/pool party ... I'm glad that I didn't need to run in and pick anything up ... we all know how that goes ... 1 item ends up being 5 to 10 and $30 to $50 in minutes.
So ... there will be a trip to Costco this week, most likely ... a few things to pick up, lemons, limes, romaine lettuce and maybe ground beef and chicken breasts ... and a few other things :-)
I cleaned ONE shelf out in the pantry ... what we call the "bread shelf" which houses the bread, buns, chips, crackers and other miscellaneous starchy, crap foods ... because neither of us really eat a lot of bread, the stuff was starting to get a little funky so I tossed it ... also found a bag of open cereal that Sonny Boy left here, open crackers that were stale, a few random open bags of chips with crumbs that got tossed too ... The shelf is now looking pretty bare ... and of course, Hubby requested a sandwich for lunch ... Sorry dude, not happening!
Hoping to inventory at least ONE freezer this week since work is slowed down a bit ... thankfully!
Here's whats planned for chow this week, using what we have:
Sunday - leftover PF Changs (Saturday date night)
Monday - Crock pot Salisbury Steaks with ranchy carrots (new recipe to try) (ground beef in freezer, carrots in fridge, will use canned shrooms and all spices in pantry)
Tuesday - Chicken Caesar Pasta Salad (chicken in freezer, lettuce will be bought at store, dressing and cheese in freezer - may skip the pasta as we don't have any and I really don't want to buy any)
Wednesday - Tacos (taco salad for me) (ground beef in freezer, seasoning in pantry, salsa and fixins are in fridge already)
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Pan Seared Ribeyes with blue cheese and mushroom sauce (need to post that recipe!) (Ribeyes in freezer, will need to pick up blue cheese and fresh mushrooms at store)
Saturday - Hubby's choice ...
As always, we may have friends over either Friday or Saturday night so those menu choices are never firm ...
