The Food is Planned

I went grocery shopping at Safeway today & got some really good deals. I am really happy. I saved over 50% on my grocery bill!
I have the bread for next week freshly baked on the kitchen counter. It is Crescent Dragonwagon's Rabbit Hill Inn Oatmeal Molasses Bread- From her Soup & Bread book (excellent).
-Tomorrow for our main meal, we'll have the Red Snapper that was on sale today.
We will simply saute the fillets in olive oil, salt & peppered & then add a bit of white wine, diced tomatoes, chopped rosemary & capers. We'll eat some asparagus on the side.
Monday - Pea Soup with Caraway Adelle, Oatmeal Bread & Salad.
This is also a Crescent Dragonwagon recipe. I have not tried it yet. So, if it is good, I'll type it out for you guys!
Tuesday - Milk Braised Pork, Polenta & Salad - this pork is slow cooked with milk, sage & lemon peel. That's about it... But, it is tasty!
Wednesday - Jamaican Tacos, homemade tortillas & sauteed Chayote
Thursday - Tandoori Chicken, Rice & sauteed winter greens
Friday - Spiced Pork w/ Celery Root & Lentils (cooking up the rest of the pork tenderloin)

Sounds yummy! Especially the tandoori chicken!
I started shopping at Safeway for a lot of stuff recently...I cannot believe how much I've been getting ripped off by Andronico's (what did I expect, right?). Especially stuff like cold cereal (we never eat it for breakfast but it's the snack of choice around here), rice milk, organic chicken, much more reasonable!
Now I just need to follow your lead and start planning a weekly menu. Come to think of it...I think I'll do that now.

So cute that you posted your food menu for the week. I'll be over tomorrow for dinner.

I saw this blog that the lady hosts a Meal Plan Monday for people to link to and get ideas for what to have for dinner. This is fun to see what you're doing!

Meal Plan Monday is a good idea!
