Menus with what's on sale Oct. 7- Oct. 13

So. Yesterday afternoon I sit down to write out some of the recipes that I wanted to and to perhaps work on the Budget Menu after that and I get this urgent message from my son as I let the message machine pop on instead of answering the phone. Can I just ask you this? How does someone forget to bring a speedo (Ew.) to a swim meet? So I drop everything and run and find it (on the bedroom floor, big surprise, but by then I was just so happy to have found it fast), pick it up with only my forefinger and thumb without having to look at it too much and put it in a bag, throw the after swim meet pizza party cookies into a cooler so they won't turn into molten lava, then throw the cooler into the car and race to the pool to give him his swimsuit before the swim meet started. I used to be so smug about this sort of thing. People who had children who would forget to bring their swimsuit to a swim practice or a swim meet. Not any more.

Here it is for the week


Feel free to shave off what you can. I was a little limited as the Albertson's deal I had to buy in increments of 6. Also, especially with Albertsons, using coupons I bet that you can clip at least $5 off of this total, if not more.

1-Breakfast tacos (chorizo, eggs, tortilla)
2-Cold cereal, milk, Sunny Delite
3-Blueberry muffins, pear slices
4-Eggs, toast, Sunny Delite
5-Cold cereal, milk
6-Pancakes see for recipe
7-Cold cereal, milk, orange rolls

1-Tuna sandwich, chex mix, banana
2-PB&J sandwich, apple (hopefully you have jelly already)
3-Tuna sandwich, chex mix
4-PB&J sandwich, cantaloupe chunks
5-Tuna sandwich, apple
6-Mac & cheese
7-Dinner leftovers

1-Pig in Blanket, carrot sticks, cantaloupe chunks see,1726,149161-232195,00html If you'd rather do a chili dog, there is an interesting recipe and video of how to make it at the left side, under Tyler Florence. You'll need to add hot dog buns and another pound or two of ground London Broil to the list if you do.

2-Chicken and dumplings, romaine and tomato salad see see for a homemade salad dressing with ingredients you may already have

3-Shrimp scampi and pasta, frozen vegetable, see The shrimp in the bag are already cooked so you'll just need to soak them in cold water, drain, then toss in the sauce lightly. Otherwise they will get tough like erasers.

4-Bacon Quiche, romaine and tomato salad, french bread see See left side for recipe for pie crust.

5-Chicken enchiladas, frozen vegetable. Use a can of enchilada sauce, chicken quarters meat, cheese, flour tortillas.

6-Ground beef gravy over mashed potatoes, steamed broccoli. Brown ground london broil, season to taste with garlic powder or salt, salt and pepper if desired, add can of cr. of mushroom soup, can of water, or almost a can of water and stir until smooth and heat through. You can add some worcestershire sauce if you have it. Put on mashed potatoes.

7-Pizza, frozen vegetable

Possible dessert ideas this week could be snickerdoodles. Apple pie if you buy more apples and apple pie enchiladas if you buy more apples or apple pie filling and more flour tortillas.

Apple Pie Enchiladas
Submitted to the couponsense message board recipe folder by Erika M.
I just think that this is a nifty idea!

1 (21 oz) can apple pie filling
6 (6 inch) flour tortillas
ground cinnamon
1/2 C. granulated sugar
1/2 C. packed brown sugar
1/2 C. water
1/3 C. butter or margarine
whipped cream or vanilla ice cream
1. spoon fruit filling evenly down the center of each tortilla, and sprinkle with cinnamon. roll up each tortilla, and place seam side down in baking dish.
2. Combine both sugars, water, and butter in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, reduce heat, and simmer, stirring constantly for 3 minutes. Pour sauce over enchiladas and let stand for 30 minutes.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve warm with whipped cream and/or ice cream. Can drizzle excess sauce over ice cream. Makes 6 servings.

This menu has been a booger to figure out. And if it seems high, it is, but there are some high end ingredients in here. Just hope that it's all here.
