    the CouponDive - I am so glad you liked the bbq chicken. It's so easy it's ridiculous!

    Thanks to everyone for sharing your meal plans!

    erin - it happens to all of us at times. Life gets in the way of the most perfectly laid out meal plans. Looks like you have a great plan for this week. The shrimp and salmon sound wonderful!

    I am adding veggie meatballs to the pasta and marinara tonight. The Veggie Patch veggie meatballs are BOGO at Lowes through today for $2, so I'll throw some of those on the pasta for some added protein and flavor.

    So far this week I have been extremely lazy about hammering out my meal plan! Tonight we had Marinara Sauce (I canned it last summer) with TJs mini meatballs (really good!) on whole grain pasta. I split kaiser rolls and made garlic bread. I had a handful of fresh, raw broccoli and cauliflower with ranch with it. I have NO CLUE what is on tap for the remainder of the week!

    Last night was roasted chicken with rice and a salad with the last of the free greens I got, tomatoes, green olives, red peppers, and those little fresh mozzarella b*lls, tonight is soy sauce marinated london broil on the grill(got a huge steak at FL for like $7 yesterday), mashed potatoes, asparagus. Tomorrow will be leftover steak turned into Asian-style steak salad with leftover rice, snow peas, water chestnuts, broccoli. I have a little leftover chicken that will be turned into soup I think. Maybe a corn-chicken chowder. Poetically, I like your style of cooking and having leftovers. It is nice not to have to start from square one every night! I like the idea of your chicken alfredo and maybe will use that for our leftover chicken. If I don't use the leftover rice in the steak salad, I'll make rice pudding.

    I failed miserably at my ideal meal plan last week. Between working late and helping out a friend on Tuesday, our week turned into fast food, sushi, and a night out with the inlaws. I still stayed within our dining out budget, but back to the drawing board for this week's meal plan.

    M-Got shrimp and salmon with a Capital Seafood Market groupon yesterday, green beans $0.79/lb at Kroger last week, brown rice.
    T-Spinach Salad with grilled chicken
    W-"Ficken" Parmesan with Morningstar chicken patties, whole wheat noodles, sauce, and shredded cheese
    Th-Buffalo chicken mac n cheese
    F-Brown Rice, Korma Sauce, vegetables, salmon
    Sat-Having friends over. Making either soup or chili with lots of cheap and free snacks from prior sales and super doubling events.
    Sun-Leftover soup or chili and some grilled cheese.
