Another Mealplan (no fancy title...)

Last night I spent alot of time flipping through flyers, recipes, and the cupboard trying to come up with a cheap and effective meal plan to get me through the next 10 (yup, 10!) days.    After comparing flyers, I still have NO IDEA where to get the bulk of my groceries the cheapest.  No time to travel to 2 different towns, and 4 different grocery stores... decisions, decisions.

This is what we're doing until the day we leave (9:30 am takeoff... we have to leave the house uber-early!  What was I thinking?!)
  • Maple Glazed Salmon Skewers, Breaded Halibut (for the boys), Curly Fries & Broccoli Slaw(this is what we enjoyed last night.)
  • Thai Peanut Chicken Pizza (we'll be modifying it using ingredients on hand - ie. homemade peanut sauce but it's the inspiration for dinner tonight)
  • Thai Peanut Chicken Pasta Salad (this will use the remaining peanut sauce and chicken from tonight... it'll be a throw-together-and-see-how-it-works type of meal tomorrow night.)
  • Turkey Sausage, Steamed Brocoli & Carrots, Seasoned Basmati Rice
  • Ribs, Pierogies or Roasted Potatoes, Caesar Salad
  • Chicken Caesar Pitas
  • Chicken Alfredo Puffs & Garden Salad
  • Pasta & another Salad
  • Beef Kebabs, Corn on the Cob, Fresh Veggies & Italian Bread
  • Philly Cheesesteaks (or something of the sort using the leftover beef)
  • Turkey Caesar Burgers, Veggies & Dip
Side note - I dropped my dress off for alterations this morning.  They were super-busy and I had to wait... so they gave me a discount and will hem Kaleb's pants for free -woohoo. It should look absolutely gorgeous when it actually fits.  We don't want to encounter a wardrobe malfunction under the desert sun.  Fingers crossed they'll do a good job (and maybe I've found a place to alter my many jeans that are just a tad too long!)  Oooh.. and can I just say that regular bra fittings are amazing things - just saying!

You're making my mouth water. Can you make enough for leftovers and freeze them for Dad and I - then maybe I can get off the hook for cooking! Name your price... :)
