I skipped menu-planning last week because we had something every single night of the week. Seriously. And then, we spent the weekend at my in-laws' house for our Christmas with them. This week will be kind of crazy too, but I need a little organizational release to help me keep my sanity during this busy time!
On the couponing front, I made my last official trip to the grocery store this year before all of those 12/31/09 coupons expire! Publix had some great deals this week. I got $204.74 worth of groceries for $100.26 (plus tax). That is a savings of 52%. On a side note, I normally do not spend that much money per week at the grocery store. On this trip, I bought groceries for our meals this week, including Christmas breakfast and dinner, and did some major stockpiling since I had not done this since the week before Thanksgiving.
Monday: turkey pot pie
Tuesday: leftover rotisserie chicken, broccoli casserole, rolls
Wednesday: chicken puffs, mixed veggies
Thursday: Christmas Eve at my sister's house ... I have to figure out some kind of appetizer to take. Any suggestions?
Friday -- Christmas breakfast: egg/sausage casserole, cinnamon roll muffins, fruit
Friday -- Christmas dinner: chicken Alfredo, salad, garlic bread, cheesecake
Weekend: more family Christmas stuff so no cooking for me!
