Monday Menu

Hello everyone!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend.  Mountain Man and I didn't do a whole lot this weekend.  Went to the grocery store on Sunday and bought our monthly supply of groceries - I didn't have to buy much meat.  After my inventory of the two freezers I realized that I had more than enough for us for the month.  I did need to buy some hamburgers (I buy the ones already patted out - okay, I admit it - I'm lazy) and I bought a pork roast and a whole chicken to cook in the crock pot.  I love to do this and then debone the chicken and freeze the cooked meat to use later.  The pork roast will make a GREAT batch of bar-b-que.  Other than the regular staples the trip was pretty uneventful.

Well, that isn't exactly true - we did buy some plastic dinnerware to put in the camper that Mountain Man has been wanting, and we bought a new float for the swimming pool.  Mine got a hole in the footrest, so they had them at Wal Mart for about twenty dollars less than I paid last year at Pinch A Penny.  Then Mountain Man needed a new bathing suit - does this ever happen to you?  You go into Wal Mart to buy groceries and end up with all this stuff that wasn't on the grocery list???  Unless I just put my foot down we always end up with stuff not on the list - but, I have to say, even buying the "extras"
we spend less at Wal Mart than at the "regular" grocery stores like Publix or Winn Dixie.  While I love Publix we don't do our "big" shopping there - I will go in during the month and pick up milk, OJ, bread, or eggs (okay, okay, maybe some doughnuts or Carmel nut rolls) but that's it - Honest Injun!

I'm way off topic today!  So, did you stay with your plan last week?  We did - until Thursday.  Wednesday night my laptop died - and that is my lifeline.  Yes, we have a PC but I can sit in "my" chair, watch TV, blog or check and read my 'bloggy' friends blogs with my laptop.  So, Thursday after work Mountain Man and I had to take my computer into Sebring to see if we could get it back working.  Turned out not to be a big deal - the power cord had burned up and the battery had not been charging when I had it plugged in.  Fifty dollars later we had a new power cord and my lap top is back in my lap.  But, now we were in Sebring and Mountain Man was hungry - so it was a stop at Sonny's Real Pit Bar-B-Que for dinner.  We pretty much stayed with the plan other than that.

So, what's on tape for this week?  So glad you asked!

  1. Your meals for the week sound delicious! And, I'm super envious that you can plan it out that way ... I need to do that myself! And, thank you for your sweet note about my parents' sunroom redo!

  2. thanks Becca - I actually plan for the month, but just post a week at a time. I do better when I do a month at a time instead of weekly.
