What has Cheap Thrills planned for this week?
We were gone for the weekend. A looong weekend “jaunt,” and I’m exhausted. Thank goodness I have some pre-made meals in the freezer, and a plan to make it all happen. Healthfully. The grocery deals I’ve been getting have certainly come in handy these last few weeks. I’ve been able to pull a few ingredients, or meals, out of the freezer to thaw overnight in the fridge, then cook/heat through in no time flat! What a Thrill!
Sunday: Ate out on the way home. The Bunk House in Valentine, Nebraska. Pretty good eats!
Monday: Turkey taco soup freezer repeats (one of the yummiest, most frugal meals I make), corn chips (.99 Aldi)
Tuesday: Tortellini (2.98), marinara (.63), Italian blend vegs ($1)
Wednesday: Manwiches (meat = 1.88/# + Manwich = .40), frozen oven-baked fries (.88), carrot sticks (ridiculously cheap!)
Thursday: Shanghai chicken meatballs, rice (.10/serving), slaw (hope to get cabbage on sale this week)
Friday: Pan-grilled pork chops (.99/#), caramelized apples (.88/#), noodles (.69/package)
Saturday: Guys at Vala’s for Scout Blitz Day, me out to a friend’s farm (bringing side dish tbd)
