I will be cooking for 4 adults and one toddler for the next three weeks-I love it! I brought a ton of canned/dry goods over with me to offset the increased costs of living with my folks for the next bit and I plan to do most of our eating from the pantry.
My dad loves red meat so I have to have some of that in most meals so I am looking for deals there. Yesterday my dad and I swung by Safeway and found ground beef marked down for $1.50 for 3 lbs! $0.50/lb is amazing! So we bought two and left a dozen others for someone else (but those were marked $2.50 each for 3 lbs-still an amazing deal!)
cold cereal, pancakes, scrambled eggs with mix-ins, french toast, homemade donuts on Friday (for my birthday-anyone have a fool-proof homemade recipe?)
Monday: Roast, acorn squash, carrots in the crockpot, bread & leftover salad
Tuesday: Leftovers, soup (parents at Bible study tonight)
Wednesday: Thai Peanut noodles with leftover roast on the side for dad, frozen broccoli
Thursday: Chili and Cornbread
Friday: Red Robin for my birthday (free birthday burger-yay!)
Saturday: Meatloaf from freezer, mac n cheese, peas
Sunday: Enchiladas, green beans
