Menu Plan and Stocking Up

Menu Plan 
Our plans changed for Thanksgiving so it looks we will be home and I will be cooking Thanksgiving Dinner for our family of 5.  Here is our Menu Plan for the rest of the week.

Monday: Grilled Cheese Sandwiches
Tuesday: Ham n Beans
Wednesday: Spaghetti / Garlic Bread
Thursday: Turkey Day
Friday: ??
Saturday ??
Sunday: Leftovers

Since we were supposed to be gone this weekend we thought we would go ahead but  do something fun for the kids. We are throwing around a couple ideas of places to go for Friday/Saturday/Sunday so our weekend plans are up in the air.

Stocking UP
Our local Grocery store has had decent sales going on the past couple of weeks. One week was all the baking supplies. I stocked up on Flour, Sugar, Chocolate Chips, butter. etc. This week and last week it was all the items for Thanksgiving dinner. I stocked up on several more items canned vegetables, pickles, olives.
My husband thought I was a little crazy but I know everything will get used up before it goes bad.  Some of the deals were just to good to pass up. I know the point of the sale is to get customers in the store so they will be buy something else but for the most part I stuck to the sale items. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas I know everything will get used.
I had set aside some of our budget money for this stock up. I knew it was coming as the store does it every year.
