Weekly Menu 1/24

Here is the weekly menu.. we'll see if this all gets tackled!
  • Turkey and Stuffing Bake
  • Quick Shrimp Scampi
  • Turkey Meatloaf
  • Chicken Stir Fry
  • Omelets
  • Deconstructed Lasagna
  • Tuna Melts
I thought I'd explain how I plan our weekly menu.  First, I look at the meat/protein that we have in the freezer/fridge.  Then I try to find at least 3 new recipes to try and throw in 2 or 3 staples that are easy to make for those hectic nights.  Then I go through the Weis and Giant ads and look for good deals on the ingredients I need for the recipes and also for good deals that are worth stocking up on.  I make an itemized list of items at each store that are worth buying.  I also make sure I have the staples on the list like bread or other things that we need for lunch or breakfast.

For anyone around here, here are the deals I'm seeing at Weis and Giant this week that I'm interested in (not my full grocery list, but close):
