I have salmon, chicken and venison in the freezer- I have tuna, onions, celery dressings and peanut butter in the pantry, eggs, cheeses and leftover roast beef from Wednesday. I need to get a few shrimp. To this I added:
1 Dole pineapple in juice (1.65)
1 Kikkoman soy sauce (4.59)
2 cans of Herdez Verde sauce (1.59 ea)
a box of Swanson broth (3.19)
a bag of Fresh Express cole slaw (2.49)
a bag of store brand frozen peas (1.76)
a bag of store brand frozen corn (1.76)
a box of Fresh Express Organic salad (4.49)
1 cauliflower (4.96)
.66 lb mushrooms (3.24)
1 iceberg (1.99)
3 colored peppers (11.96)
1 romaine (2.29)
a box of cherry tomatoes (5.99)
1 cucumber (2.49)
3 carrots (1.16)
1 sweet potato (2.05)
1 zucchini (.84)
with tax it's 63.08
I would have gotten the regular medium hot house tomatoes and no peppers had I been the one shopping but it is what it is.
With this I am making:
Dinners: Chicken tacos, veggie kabobs & shrimp kabobs (separate), fried rice (loads of veggies, eggs and a bit of chicken), peanut chicken lettuce wraps, fish & sweet potato (with salad) and Buffalo wings with a salad and celery sticks.
Lunches will be leftovers for the most part, but I will use some of the Buffalo chicken for a wrap, the roast will go on a couple of salads over the weekend and leftover kabobs will go on an Asian slaw. I'm going to make some vegetable soup as well so I have some hot, fast food in the event I can't cook for some reason.
Breakfast will be scrambled eggs with a sauteed vegetable, a tuna melt on sliced tomatoes (planned on cutting the little things in half and sticking under the broiler), and a frittata.
I should still have food leftover stuff that I can turn into something or have for breakfast. The fresh stuff was a bit higher this week than I'd wanted- again, if I were shopping, I'd have shopped for what was on sale.
Next week when the hub is home, I'll have to fill in with things like potatoes, pasta and rice to fill him up- if he went LC our bill would double. I'll also go for some ground beef, and chicken thighs for him.
This is going to be difficult!
