Weekly Menu Plan 4/14- 4/20

This post may contain affiliate links – your clicking on them helps support our family.
Thanks! You can read more about our Disclosure Policy here.

weekly menu planOne of the ways that I save money on my grocery bill each week is buying only meats that are on mark down.

I try never to spend over a few bucks for meats, unless it is something big like turkey or ham. Kroger is my favorite place to find mark downs because they usually have a good selection and the dates are usually still several days off.

When I get them home I check to see when they need to be eaten and if it doesn’t fit the schedule I will freeze it right away or cook it (things like ground hamburger) and then freeze if for a future meal.

What are some ways you save on your meat purchases?

Now on to this weeks menu plan.

Breakfast and lunch is pretty much the same around my house which is why that part of the menu never changes.

Breakfasts – consists of oatmeal, cold cereal, fruit smoothies, toast & poached eggs.

Lunches – consists of soups, peanut butter or tuna sandwiches, and dinner leftovers.

Dinners – I will try to include lots of veggies this week.

~ Monday ~

Leftovers – I needed to clear out the fridge, we have so many leftovers!

~ Tuesday ~

BBQ Pork Chops, Broccoli and Mashed Potatoes

~ Wednesday ~

Soup and Grilled Cheese Sandwiches

~ Thursday ~

Waffles, Sausage Links and Canteloup

~ Friday ~

Chicken Gnocchi Soup
(We never ended up having it last time)

~ Saturday ~

Sliders, Salad and French Fries

~ Sunday ~

Usually we have a very late lunch and just find something small for dinner. Either way I don’t plan because I like to be flexible for anything that pops up.

starbucks

Target has a couple different varieties of Starbucks Ground Coffee marked $3.49 each!!

This is the larger 20 oz bag that are regularly priced $12.99 each. The varieties that were marked down at my store included Caffe Verona Dark Blend and the Blonde Veranda Blend which is the kind I found. These were both clearly marked at my store.

If you store doesn’t have any in stock, be patient the shelf tag shows the price is valid through May 10th so you have some time.

There is also  $2/2 Starbucks Coffee coupon found in the 4/13 Smart Source coupon inserts if you have them which will bring the cost down to $2.49 each!

Tax Day Freebies and Deals 2014

This post may contain affiliate links – your clicking on them helps support our family.
Thanks! You can read more about our Disclosure Policy here.

tax dayYou can’t get out of paying your taxes, but you can get some nice goodies for doing so!

Here is a list of some of the best Tax Day Freebies and Deals 2014 available this year.

skitchOffice Depot
Free shredding

Valid: From now until April 29
Deal: It’s bad enough that you need to dish out the dough and pay your dues when the day arrives, but spending additional dollars just getting your documents in order is downright frustrating (especially when you could be spending that dosh on something a little more glamorous). To save those precious pennies and rid yourself of that pile of paperwork after the ordeal, you can shred 5-lbs. of documents for free at your local Office Depot.

mcdMcDonald’s
Free McDonald’s coffee

Valid: From now until April 13
Deal: After a late night of number-crunching in the run-up to the big day, you’ll likely need a jolt of caffeine to get you through the morning and keep you sane. McDonald’s is luckily giving away a small cup of McCafé coffee for free during breakfast hours. Plus, we hear that select outlets may even offer customers complimentary refills. Please note, this deal expires before tax day itself.

burgerHard Rock Café
Hard Rock Café Giveaway

Valid: From 5 pm to 7 pm, April 15
Deal: Whether you’re lucky enough to have a rocking set of pipes on you or not, you can entertain fellow guests at select Hard Rock café’s for a free dinner entrée when you “Sing for your Supper” — and thankfully, we see no mention of this freebie depending on your abilities. Now what could be better than dinner and a show?

 

hydromassageHydroMassage
Free HydroMassage

Valid: From April 14 to April 15
Deal: If the sample of sugar from Cinnabon doesn’t quite quell the anxiety caused by the uphill battle against those tax forms, then perhaps a gratuitous soak at HydroMassage will do the trick. The traveling jet system employed by the HydroMassage bed offers a full body massage, which will hopefully help you leave your worries at the tax office. (It is strongly encouraged that you call ahead to schedule an appointment. Note that massages may be limited to a 10 minute-routine.)

papamurphys1_fs_123108_550x366Papa Murphy’s
Pepporoni Pizza

Valid: April 15
Deal: If pizza was as cheap as this all-year round, there would be little need for us to have access to a kitchen. Luckily for our health and dignity, it’s not, and we’re very happy to indulge in the offer since it’s a once-off. You can bag-and-binge a large pepperoni pizza for just $5 and forget about rustling up dinner for the day.

2skitchGreat American Cookies
Free Chocolate Chip Cookie

Valid: April 15
Deal: No matter how full we are, we can never get enough sugar into our system, especially when we’re feeling sorry for ourselves — and there are few other days in the year when we’re feeling quite as self-pitying as Tax Returns Day. To keep your blood sugar and, more importantly, your mood at its peak, you can get another delicious treat with a free chocolate chip cookie from Great American Cookies.

1skitchBoston Market
Boston Market Deal

Valid: April 15
Deal: If you’ve been as frugal as yours truly in the last few months out of necessity, then dining out has become a rare luxury. On Tax Day however, you can eat out in style without breaking the bank and dig into two half-chicken meals with two home-style sides and cornbread for just $10.40. That’s a helluva feeding for such a low price (and we won’t tell your date that you’re a cheapskate, if you don’t).

Arby’s – FREE small curly fries on April 15th.

Sonic - Happy hour all day long, 1/2 priced drinks and slushes for all on April 15th.

Steak ‘n Shake – Purchase a $10 gift card and receive a FREE milk shake at you next visit. This deal goes through May 6th.

Regal Cinemas Save $3 off the purchase of popcorn through April 30th, with their mobile coupon.

Melting Pot - Just say “cheese me, please” and you will receive 15% off your total bill on April 15th.

Easy Breakfast Casserole Recipe

Breakfast Casserole Recipe

I have been making this very easy Breakfast Casserole recipe for the last few years for my family, and it has been a huge hit!

This is a breakfast that can cook itself in the oven while you’re getting ready for church service.

Ingredients

1 pound bacon
2 onions, chopped
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon butter
4 cups frozen hash brown potatoes, thawed
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
4 eggs
1 1/2 cups milk
1 pinch dried parsley
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese

Directions

  • Place bacon in a large skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain and set aside. Add the mushrooms and onion to the skillet; cook and stir until the onion has softened and turned translucent and the mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes.
  • Grease a 9×13-inch casserole dish with the tablespoon of butter. Place potatoes in bottom of prepared dish. Sprinkle with salt, garlic salt, and pepper. Top with crumbled bacon, then add the onions and mushrooms.
  • In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs with the milk and parsley. Pour the beaten eggs over the casserole and top with grated cheese. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour or until set.

I prepare the casserole the night before except for the eggs.  Then in the morning, while we are waiting for our coffee to finish brewing (we always make the kids wait until mom & dad have coffee in hand before opening any presents) I quickly scramble and add the eggs.

Another thing I should add is that this is one of those recipes that you can adapt to your family’s tastes.  I’m planning to switch the bacon in the recipe for ham this year.

Then I pop it into the oven and we proceed to open presents.

The breakfast casserole is just finishing up about the same time we are finishing up with the presents. I love it because I look like a super mom and it’s so easy too!  Plus it keeps for a couple days, so we can have leftovers.

I also make cinnamon rolls for the kids!

I’d love to hear what you have for breakfast on Easter morning.
