Please Note: I post my weekly menu to encourage menu planning and to give meal ideas, not as a nutritional standard. You should feed your family based on your priorities and values. You may not be able to replicate this exact menu for $125 because sales vary by region and you will have different items on hand, but you can save money just by using a menu. 🙂)

I shopped at Harris Teeter for super doubles this week and cleaned out our freezer!
We are having:
– Hot roast beef on sourdough (I got really cheap) with fries
– Spaghetti w/meatballs, and garlic bread (free bread and meatballs)
– Eggs, hashbrowns, biscuits, fruit
– Chicken, rice, corn
– Chili and cornbread or soup and grilled cheese
Thanks for sharing your menu Tabitha. I am always interested to see what other people are eating. 🙂
Baked oatmeal is fantastic! I can’t eat hot oatmeal due to the texture I just can’t get over. The baked one is wonderful though and a big pan of it lasts me all week!
Do you freeze or refrigerate the leftovers?
I usually just refrigerate it since it’s just me and the hubby. We just cut squares off of it and a few seconds in the microwave to heat it up. I haven’t made two batches at once but I suspect it *should* freeze okay.

The oatmeal looks amazing! I wish I hadn’t just gone shopping, I would have added it to the list!
Oh no–maybe next week. 🙂
