What has Cheap Thrills planned for this week?
Our week starts out nice and “normal,” then kicks into hyper mode. Friday two of my guys go camping, but #1 has the Homecoming Game. Saturday, Oktoberfest at the German American Society, and possibly going to the Homecoming Dance. I’ve planned meals using recent sale prices and unexpected deals; some have been socked away in the freezer. Here’s what I’ve got this week, but anything can happen:
Sunday: Class picnic: Picnic Chicken (.91 for 3# Smart Chicken) for us, corn salad dish (FREE Our Fam corn) to share
Monday: Fast dinner/Meeting Dash: Banquet chicken tenders (3.25), Alexia fries for the guys (.78), slaw (cabbage for pennies, slaw dressing for cheaper)
Tuesday: Banquet cheesy burger patties ($1), diced potatoes for the guys (1.33), carrots (.88/2#, so .30)
Wednesday: Crock lasagne with spinach (lasagne noodles <$1, sauce .78, spinach .88, cheese .67), salads (1.1.6) with tomato from the garden and dressing (always less than .90/bottle)
Thursday: Teriyaki ginger chicken (.98/#, made on Chicken Cooking Day), brown rice for the guys (.10/serving), vegs tbd
Friday: Dinner on the go for two who like the spicy: Chipotle chicken drums ($1 for 3# Smart Chicken marinated in a flavor packet from another meal), chipotle ranch Suddenly Salad (.74), Star Bars (.16 each)
Saturday: Dinner at G.A.S. — oh, what a Thrill! Brat no bun, homemade sauerkraut, oh, man!
