Join us this week as we play another round of “Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner?” Each night will be a surprise as to how many appetites sit around the CT dinner table.
It’s another weird dinner week, but hopefully things will get back to normal really soon. One out of town, a couple out of pocket, and yours truly still out of her element. Added guests here and there, added activities, and added confusion. But hey! It’s all good. These menus are easily expandable or contractable (or get saved as lunch leftovers, anyway).
Here’s what’s on our dinner menus this week:
Sunday: Lasagne (noodles $1, sauce .54, beef $1, cheeses $2 total, egg .08), salad (.50), FREE Rotella breadsticks from an outing. About $5.10, with lunch leftovers.
Monday: Lloyd’s bbq (1.79 x 2) on buns (.35), cole slaw (.35), oven steak fries (.30). About $4.60.
Tuesday: (Extra appetites for certain.) Crock Pot beef roast (~$7 beef, ~$1 seasonings), potatoes (.50), carrots (.99). About $9.50; leftovers not included in this cost.
Wednesday: Fish sticks (2.50), mac and cheese (.40), green beans (.28). About $3.20.
Thursday: Pot luck out: cookies (what else? ~$2.50), meatballs (1.75). About $4.25
Friday: Baked fish ($1.79/# = $2.50), rice (.40), broccoli (.48). About $3.40.
Saturday: Leftover veg in quiche (~2.25 including cheese), salads (.40), leftover FREE breadsticks. About $2.75.
These dinners for the five of us will cost about $32.80, including the 2.99/# pot roast splurge. The cost of beef is totally outrageous! I’m so glad I still have some packages of that .99/# lean ground beef deal I stumbled upon. The roast leftovers will go into the freezer for a quick meal probably next week.
