Grocery Shopping – November 17 to November 23

This upcoming week could be interesting, but I still think we will be ok with the so-called budget … I’ve got 2 turkey breast in the freezer, Hubby wants to buy one, maybe two turkeys to fry … but said maybe he would just stick with the one if Princess b/f didn’t want a fried one to take home to family (we typically fry 4 to 6 turkeys each Thanksgiving, but this year, Hubby doesn’t have an office to take one or two in on Friday) …

I do need some potatoes, cheese and meat for a tray, eggs (deviled eggs), spinach (for spinach dip, I have the rest of the stuff in fridge/freezer/pantry). I have everything for the green beans and the kale salad already. Hubby wants to make stuffing so I need to get a few bags of stuffing, the sausage and will need more onions too. I almost think I should just go to Costco!

Hopefully we won’t need much more outside of THAT days food 😉  Sonny Boy comes home Tuesday night which means another mouth to feed for the balance of the week!

Here’s what I picked up this past week:
