Cheap and Cheerful Chatter: $300 Grocery Challenge -- Week Three

Another week and another less than $50 shopping trip. We still have $110 left for the month which will help us get our Halloween treats (including stuff for a class party) and possibly leave us some extra for a night of take out!

I spent $43.79 today and got ground beef, corn, lettuce, bananas, apples, two muffin mixes (huge sale on Krusteaz, plus $2 worth of coupons), eggs, yogurt, milk, pizza toppings, sour cream, bread, peanut butter (buy one, get one free), tomato sauce and diced tomatoes, pasta, pretzels, and a few other things I can't remember. (I am too lazy to get out from under my warm covers to get the receipt!)

Anyway, our dinners this week are taco salad, pasta with homemade sauce, huevos rancheros, homemade pizza, chili and cornbread, burgers/tacos/or tostadas (depending on what we feel like that night), and there will be plenty for leftovers. We've still got green beans and other frozen veggies for side dishes and several frozen sourdough baguettes.

Lots of frozen fruit for breakfast smoothies, plus plenty of cereal and yogurts and we'll make some muffins this week, too. My kids live and die for their daily peanut butter sandwich and we're all stocked up there, with pretzels, raisins, and frozen go-gurts on the side.

Cheap and Cheerful wants to know: What are you eating this week?
