    Leftover pork roast, baked potato (in toaster oven so I don't heat up the house), pork n beans, and a salad.

    Thinking I want tacos one night and crockpot spaghetti another night. Friday I want some Golden Corral meat takeout and will come home and make salad and veggies. Not sure the rest of the week.

    Tonight is disguised leftovers :) I've saved in separate freezer bags meal remnants of garden veggies, beans and fruit while attending sick family for over a week (not a 'leftover' eater). The crockpot's working magic to have vegetable soup ready for a late-ish supper. To the veggies and beans, I added a package of Birds Eye Italian Style Protein Blend (from home freezer stash) and canned diced tomatoes (pantry stash). I'll make peasant butter to accompany the last package of microwave warmed Stonefire Na'an bread (a free w/coupon prior week's special from HT). I'm catching up on blog posts and in a moment will dash my frugal feet to HT for the deal on peaches (along with SavingStar rebate) to make garnished fruit medley smoothies with the peaches and frozen leftover fruit.
    The rest of the week will come together as I hastily clip some coupons to catch Super Doubles. Thank you so very, very much, Faye - and Smart Shoppers - for the wonderful lists of deals and tips!!!

    Lindabates, yay for Friday! Lol.

    Tonight's menu features roasted whole chicken, asparagus, and rice. I picked up a nice fat chicken yesterday at FL $0.99/lb every day price. Leftover chicken salad later this week

    Tonight we are having teriyaki tofu, zucchini, mushrooms and onions, veggie egg rolls. We are also babysitting some adorable little girls today so my oldest and the 4 year old will be making brownies with a cream cheese frosting this afternoon. You can guess what we are having for dessert. :-)
