We made our second grocery trip run this afternoon. I didn't think the sales at Hy-Vee were that great this week, but there were a few things on my list. I intended to make a trip to Price Chopper this weekend too, but I'm out of money! I also forgot to mention that I lost the list that I made, so I had to totally wing these last two trips. (See this week's other trip here.) What can I say?

I'm not feelin' a break down right now, so a picture will have to suffice! I came in at about $32.00 pre-tax. I saved about $6.00 with coupons and will receive a UPromise credit of $1.

I have meatloaf and funeral potatoes in the oven right now. I'll also be making EVEN MORE whole wheat banana bread, and our favvvvvvvvorite chili recipe (I make it with half the meat and double the beans!) for our pumpkin carving event on Tuesday night. Stay tuned for the recipes! Other than that, we'll be eating things like pancakes and french toast from the freezer, scrambled and hard boiled eggs, homemade apple/pear sauce with oatmeal, packed lunches, and quick dinners like grilled cheese if we run out of meatloaf and chili leftovers! It should be a week of good eatin'!


Edited to add that the meatloaf was HORRIBLE! Simply horrible! I think it's the first thing I have ever made that my husband would NOT eat. It was soooooooooo soggy. Way too much milk! ICK!
