From the Grocery List to the Dinner Table

After I make note of what's on sale at Super One, I decide what meals to make. This week I planned to make:
Pork roast ($1.89/lb.) made in the crock pot with sauerkraut, baked potatoes and cooked carrots
Chicken Enchiladas with shredded chicken from the freezer. I bought tortillas at $0.99 each, shredded cheddar cheese and a can of cream of chicken soup. I had salsa already in the pantry.
Chili made with hamburger from the freezer, beans in the pantry, and corn from the freezer. We had corn muffins with the chili, made from ingredients in the pantry--I use the recipe on the corn meal container.
Parmesan drumsticks made with chicken from the freezer, Bear Creek pasta side (new product was on sale for $2.49, used $1 coupon making it $1.49), and a vegetable blend from the freezer.
Chicken dinner made with ingredients from the freezer and pantry.
Minestrone soup made with pantry ingredients, with Tuscan bread my husband got from Great Harvest
Frozen pizza with wings (2/$5 for the wings)
Not for this week, but I bought a turkey breast for $0.89/lb. to put in the freezer for Sunday dinner sometime in the future.
