Meal Plan Monday {Plus Grocery Voyeur} ~ 9.12.11

So either I’m getting really good at this meal planning thing or some time next week I’m going to get bit in the ass.  Because I did my routine bi-weekly shopping over the weekend and only spent $78.16.

I do have to take a trip to Trader Joes next weekend and hopefully we will make it apple picking, but I can’t imagine spending $40 between the two.  Unless I get a shit ton of apples.  Which I kinda want to do.  But once I get them home, I won’t want to do anything with them.  And they will rot in my fridge.  So I’m going to do my best to practice restraint at the apple orchard.

This week’s Aldi trip was full of baking supplies.  Because the weather is getting cooler and I’m itching to start using my oven again.  Although, the forecast is for a high of 90 today.  So much for being done with running the a/c for the season.

The Schnucks trip was pretty standard, too.  I honestly couldn’t think of anything else that we needed.  So it’s mostly bread, produce, and cereal.

We have a lot of leftovers in the fridge, so I’m hoping to use some of that up this week and attempt to minimize my food waste.  Here’s the plan for the rest of the week:

Sunday:  Football Food (toasted ravioli, mozzarella sticks, potato skins)

Monday:  Leftovers

Tuesday:  Fried Rice

Wednesday:  Pasta

Thursday:  Open because we might make plans to meet friends

Friday:  More leftovers

Saturday:  Pot Roast with Potatoes and Carrots 

What’s on your menu for the week? 

Help me celebrate my blogiversary by entering to win a custom crocheted hat from The Mad Hatteress!  Because who wouldn’t want this fabulousness on their noggin’?
