Weekly Grocery Trip

My little one saw the $0.99 Strawberries from Aldi's and polished off a whole pint before dinner! Good thing I bought 3 total!

We have some friends coming to spend 3 days with us, so I got the approval from the hubbie to spend more than $40 on groceries this week. I ended up spending $74 total.

Some great deals I found were the strawberries from Aldi, the mangos were $0.79 from Aldi, the Fiber One yogurt from IGA in my previous post was a steal, and the bananas were $0.45/lb. at Aldi.

Also we hooked up 4 boxes of Frosted Mini Wheats from Schnucks because they were $2/box and I had a $1 off coupon, making them $1/box! To sweeten the deal - if you bought 4 boxes you'd get a $2 off your next grocery order! So I got 4 boxes for $0.50 each!!

Our meals planned for this week are:

Cereal, Waffles, Scrambled Eggs, Toast, and more cereal

Ham, Pepperoni, Cheese Sandwiches
Tortellini Soup
Fish Sticks
Grilled Cheese
Mac and Cheese (boxed)

Pork Tenderloin
Egg Casserole
Green Bean Casserole
Sloppy Joes

Pork n Beans
Pasta Salad
Corn on the Cob

Oatmeal Rasin Cookies
Super Power Muffins

super power muffins:

1 cup brown sugar (I don’t pack it!)
¼ to ½ cup peanut butter
1 banana
*optional ½ cup of apple sauce or carrot puree
1 egg
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
*optional ¼ cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all dry ingredients well and set aside. Blend everything else and then sift in dry ingredients. Spray muffin tray. Bake for 15-18 min. Makes 12 - double for 24.
