Menu with what's on sale for the week of Feb. 24-Mar. 2

Some smokin deals this week on oranges at Sprouts, chuck roast at Safeway and peanut butter at Albertson's. I was going to have an inspiring paragraph heading into the budget menus but I am finding the past two Sundays, my head and mind are fried by the time I sit down to type this up. Maybe it will get better but I doubt it. I do my best and clearest thinking in the shower, and the keyboard might get too wet if I tried that.


1-Eggs, bacon, hash browns, orange juice. Save some bacon for the Pasta Primavera
3-Yogurt, toast
4-Oatmeal, orange juice
5-Yogurt, toast
6-Oatmeal, orange juice
7-Yogurt, toast

2-PB&J sandwich, orange
3-Tuna sandwich, apple, pudding cup
4-PB&J sandwich, carrots, strawberries
5-Bologna sandwich, orange
6-PB&J sandwich, apple
7-Hot dog, orange

1-Chicken Caesar Salad sandwich. So I'm could halve a french bread loaf, put grilled or fried chicken breasts or strips of chicken on the bread, some caesar dressing and shreds or leaves of iceberg on top, put the other bread half on top and then slice into sandwiches. And I saw this on a blog or site somewhere but now I can't remember where.

2-Cheddar corn chowder (Jane Maynard version), french bread. See I didn't allow for the celery in the grocery budget

3-Beef Pot Roast, carrots, Rice A Roni

4-Pork chops, baked potato with sour cream, green beans (canned)

5-Pasta Primavera, salad. Sautee diced bacon first and let cook, then add some diced onion, chopped fresh asparagus, mushrooms, add cooked pasta and cream, and herbs and powdered garlic to taste, cook until thickened slightly.


7-Ground beef/cheese quesadillas
