**I'll do a breakdown each day with specifics about where the recipe was found and Weight Watchers points and stuff.**
My shopping list was for most of the things to make all of these dinners plus whatever we were running low on around the house. My point? I spent only $101 at Kroger! I was super excited about that because I got most everything I need and only need to go back for a handful of things. :) Which is good because I have a slightly smaller food budget for this 2-week period.
Before we left, I checked on a few stores' sites to compare flyers and make sure I could get the best deal on things I needed. I'm glad I did because the chicken was on sale for $1.99/lb, usually $3.50/lb. Also, yellow & zucchini squash was on sale for $.99/lb, as were fresh green beans. And I got milk on manager's special for $2.49/gallon and it's still good thru 4/12 (and it was only the 3rd when I got it). And I had 2 coupons for things that were already on sale too. So all-in-all, it was a good shopping trip.
Let's get eating!
