Alright, I started by taking inventory of the kitchen and the loot I got this month from Angel Foods. Then I looked at the weekly adds. Not a lot jumped out. So this was the menu I came up with:
Breakfast: assortment of cereals (got the other week for about a $1 a box), 1/2 doz donuts ($2), and 1 box of pop-tarts (wal-mart brand)
Lunch: Sandwiches, soup, left-overs, chips
Monday: Chicken & Dumplins with Collards - Collards in pantry, Margaret Holmes heat-n-serve $1 can, chicken from Angel Food box
Tuesday: Chili dogs and Mac-n-Cheese - hot dogs & Mac (angel food), chili sauce ($0.42/can), Cheese had from last week, hot dog buns (day old bread store)
Wednesday - Christmas Eve: Order in Cearaba's large party order - Chicken Marsela, Mash potatoes for 12 servings, plus the bread and oil for $100 w/o tax - right now you can get a free $20 gift card for purchasing a $100 gift card. I have 3 Caesar salad mixes & green beans.
Thursday - christmas Day - Family's house - I bring a cake and we get to take home left-overs.
Friday - Spaghetti with Texas Garlic Toast

I allot $25 for gas each week, although I am not spending it, I am letting it accumulate(I think cheap gas is not forever)
