Menu with what's on sale for the week of Mar. 17-Mar.23

It's been a bad tupperware week for me. I had been missing a few of my square tupperware that I send sandwiches to school in so that they don't get squished. They were either in the freezer with some leftover in them or in the vast wasteland that is my son's room. So I began sending in other shapes and sizes of tupperware to school. We started to find lids and their bottoms one at a time and then in multiples out in the backyard with assorted plastic baggie destruction. The dog thinks that refrigerator dishes are the new chewy toy. When my son gets home from school he lets them spill out of his backpack and onto the floor of his room. She then sneaks into his room when the opportunity comes and takes one. Viola, instant puppy party.

It doesn't seem like an awesome, screamin, smokin hot grocery deal week this week. That said, it may be that the stores are gearing up for Easter sales in a week or two. And with what is on sale, it didn't take me long to come to budget on the menu. First try. There are one or two things that are priced really good this week.
