Menu with what's on sale for the week of July 6-July 12

Another week. And yet again a lot of sales this week, most stores having their own version of the buy 10, or buy 8 themed sales. Made making the budget menu this week a tad tricky but I think that I tweaked it enough that it works. At least I hope that I didn't leave a major ingredient out. You had better check it twice or you just may end up some night making Pasta Primavera without the pasta. HA!

Trying to get "sonny boy" ready for the Missionary Training Center in a week and a half, YIKES, and then Honduras, so I am a bit frazzled. Trying to keep up life as we know it and get in everything I want to do before his two years away and am getting a wee bit anxious. I'll be fine.

I went a little over $80 again this week. You can shave off what you'd like to. Some can't be in keeping with the "8 item deal" or "10 item deal". I did originally have the Albertson's deal and went waaaaaaaayyyyyy over budget, but there are some good items at Albertson's that you may not want to miss out on this week. You could save money by not having tacos and not buying taco shells but having taco salad again this week.


I hate it when I keep pushing the shift button waiting for it to "enter" or space down.
