I still have 2 full packages (4 chicken breasts, 4 sirloin strips) and part of the hot dogs and over half of the stuff baked potatoes in the freezer from Omaha that I will use the following week.
Combined with what I had in the freezer (veggies, meat, flour, rice, couscous) and what I picked up at Kroger ($54) I still have $30+ to use at my local produce market for fresh fruit and salad fixings and milk. Even if I had paid the sale price for the meat I would still be at less than $200 for 3 weeks of meals for 3 adults and 1 part time adult daughter who eats at “home” 3 -4 times per week.

If you have time, what did you order from Omaha? I've never ordered from them because I thought they seemed high. I looked around their website and was just curious if you got a special for the 50% off for if it was one of their combos or...

Anyway, just curious about what you got. Maybe I can find some deals there too!

Sunday - was leftovers from Sat (Pizza & Olive Garden)
Monday - was BBQ Pork ribs, tater tots and l/o green beans
Tonight - will be Brie and Apple Barber chicken, l/o Mac & Cheese and steamed broccoli and cauliflower with peanut sauce

I am not too crazy about Omaha steaks. I found the portions to be really small and the cuts weren't the best either.

Today I made crock pot porcupine meatballs with mushroom gravy.

Tonight we had baked ham and cheese sandwiches with tomato soup and orange slices.

Last night we had crock pot country style boneless ribs. We had potato soup in sour dough bread bowls tonight. It was semi-homemade but one hundred percent delicious! My DD is entrance testing for high schools both Friday and Saturday and we might go see the President with Katy Perry on Saturday too.

We are going through a rough time right now both emotionally and financially, but my pantry is fully stocked to help us get through. I've got my favorite cooking holiday to look forward to at least, Thanksgiving is right around the corner

We have a local Omaha store. They will honor any online sales or coupons. They are expensive but when they run their 50% off sale I find good deals. When they run the big sales they normally also have door busters they mark down 80%, that is where I really load up. This time they had chicken fried steaks and shrimp marked 80% off. I cleaned them out of the shrimp and got a couple packs of the chicken fried steaks in addition to the combo.

One the things I actually like is the portion size. They sell 4 ounce steaks which is a proper portion size and they are one of the few places I can find them. We try to limit our red meat.

Still learning how to make things work with the new insanity. This week was "chemo week" so it threw all of my plans out the window. Monday my mom was at the clinic 8AM until 5PM (2 meds plus 2 fluid pushes). Tuesday and Wednesday were 9:45AM until 12:45PM or so. This means I don't really have time to get something into the crock pot Tuesday before we have to leave and I have classes Tuesday and Wednesday nights. Luckily, I have 3 weeks to try and figure that out before another round.

Tonight will be something with the chicken thighs and legs in the fridge because I have to either use them or freeze them... and I have no room in the freezer.

Then I have to look at what my list plan was and rework it some I think.

Hopefully I will have time to work on next weeks plans today!

LilyWDW - Hope all goes well with your Mom this week! Some suggestions for your busy week - maybe you can prepare some dishes ahead of time and put them in the freezer in portion sized containers so all you have to do is microwave them on the days that it are really busy and you do not have time to cook. Also, I sometimes prepare the crock pot the night before and stick it in the fridge so in the morning all I have to do is turn it on. Frozen ravioli or tortellini is really quick. Just boil some water, throw in the pasta and cook them until they float to top. Drain and add some sauce. Pair this with a bagged salad and dinner is ready faster than using the drive thru!! Take care!
