Menu Plan and more...

We first have to start out with a big "ROLL TIDE!!" Sarah Kate had a blast on Sat. going to Lala and Jeremiah's to watch football and play with a new friend! We got quite creative for fun things for the girls to do to be entertained, including building a tunnel and house with the dining room chairs and blankets! This weekend we are taking Sarah Kate to the great city of Tuscaloosa to tailgate! Now on to the menu:

So this week's menu plan:

Monday: We had leftover White Chicken Chili

Tues: Mimi took us to get some good ole Charley bbq

Wed.: Breakfast night: scrambled eggs, some turkey bacon, hashbrowns, biscuits and gravy, and maybe some fresh fruit thrown in too :)

Thurs.: Soup, not sure the real name of this soup, but one of my lovely friends shared this recipe with me and we love it at our house! (Recipe at the bottom of the post)--Thanks Laura!

Fri: White Pizza with Chicken and Alfredo sauce

Sat: We are headed to the great city of Tuscaloosa to tailgate and cheer on the tide!

Laura's Soup:
1 Large Onion
Smoked Sausage 2 lbs.
1 Tbsp. Worchestershire
1 1/2 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 cup honey
1 can rotel
1 can lima beans, drained
1 can kidney beans
1 can garbanzo beans

brown onion and sausage with olive oil. Dump everything else in and cook on low 2-4 hours in crockpot.
**I don't measure, this recipe is great because 1. it tastes amazing and 2. it is easy and 3. it is cheap!
**I always alter this recipe each time I make it depending on what we already have here at the house: sometimes we leave out the onion or only use 1 lb. of meat, and sometimes we change the beans depending on what we have here. It always turns out great though!

I headed to do grocery shopping yesterday while SK was at MDO and had a big stack of coupons armed and ready! Totals from Publix: Spent $39 and some change, saved $65 and some change!
