Talk about hitting the jackpot: I was able to stock up on ground turkey breast and boneless skinless chicken breasts because both were at rock-bottom prices!  I also snagged a 10lb bag of potatoes for only $3 and five packages of sliced deli cheese for $1.50 each.  So, of course I went over my $24 weekly grocery budget but these deals were too good to pass up!  I got our second CSA delivery on Thursday and because it contained so many amazing things, I didn't need anything (other than lemons and mushrooms), besides the weekly basics, at the store this week.  Our current inventory reflects chicken and turkey breast I purchased today.

You can see how I plan to use up what was in our CSA box this week by checking Thursdays' post HERE.

  1. I love your meal planning posts :). For some reason I'm fascinated by other people's meal plans. Maybe it's just that I love thinking about food!
