Grocery Grab Wednesday

I did go grocery shopping yesterday, but last night was just too hectic to post to the blog.  So today you are getting Grocery Grab Wednesday - Thursday Edition!

One of the best things about having a well-stocked freezer is when I have weeks where I don't need to buy too many things.  I have enough meat in the freezer for at least a week's worth of meals, so this week I just needed some fresh fruits and veggies and cheese for pizza.  The rest of the items I bought were simply things I wanted to buy.

Here's what I bought this week:

This week we are having chicken wings with potato puffs and cut fresh veggies, tacos, homemade pizza, and breakfast (eggs, sausage and potatoes) for dinner.  I have carrots, celery, and potatoes in the fridge and pantry already, so I didn't have to buy them this week.  We try to be good about eating leftovers, so we have leftovers 1-2 nights per week and eat out about once a week.  We also have plenty of frozen meat, fruits and veggies if we need to make another dinner.

For breakfast, we usually have cereal, oatmeal, or pancakes/waffles/eggs (on the weekend).  For lunch, the kids usually have sandwiches, yogurt parfaits, homemade "Lunchables" with turkey/cheese/crackers, or occasionally Annie's Macaroni and Cheese...and we always have fruits and veggies on the side.  I usually have leftovers from dinner or a salad.
