Budget Menu for what's on sale Nov. 17-Nov. 26

Took me a long time this time. I get distracted easily and I was planning eleven days. Don't ask me why eleven. The ad this week runs until Thursday, the 26th, which is Thanksgiving day. And then I don't think that we will get an ad until Wednesday again. The following Wednesday, as in the first Wednesday in Dec. There might be some weekend specials though, to tide us over. So the total is twice as much. But there is a BIG Thanksgiving day menu and eleven days worth of food in there. Do as little or as much as you want. I think all recipes for this week are already on the left side. I am more scattered as usual as I'm writing this, so check your grocery list carefully with your final plan for your menu.

EDIT NOTE: I bought four packages of Oscar Mayer bacon at Fry's on Sat. and received two catalina print out coupons for $2 off of my next purchase at Fry's. Which I can use to purchase more bacon and freeze. makes the bacon really cheap. There was also a coupon in Albertson's ad Sunday for buy one Bar S bacon and receive two free that could be used at Fry's this week. I haven't figured out what the bacon would end up being per package with that deal. So, no excuses to go without pork fat this week.
