  • Tuesday: Kielbasa & Kidney Beans <- This recipe is SUCH a winner! I’ve made it at least 8 times. Use delicious and inexpensive turkey smoked sausage to make it even more low-calorie.


  • Wednesday: Dinner date with a friend We had to postpone our plans due to the weather. Sad face. The huz and I grabbed a couple subs from nearby Dibella’s instead. Not a bad substitute!


  • Thursday: Couscous Meatball Soup The huz and I both got home super late so we decided to go use a gift card, and combine it with a coupon for a free app, at Red Lobster instead. I had a lobster tail and lobster tacos combo. And biscuits. And salad. And half of a sweet chili shrimp appetizer. I could barely eat my entrée by the time it came out, hence I definitely ate a lobster tail as leftovers in my cubicle for lunch on Friday. No big deal.

Last week, for various reasons, I spent a TON on groceries at Meijer. I also made a supplementary stop at Whole Foods mid-week, and used that opportunity to stock up on frozen seafood. This week I planned my menu around all the proteins I have on hand in my freezer, including chicken thighs and breast, shrimp, and salmon – so I basically just needed to pick up fresh produce and a few pantry staples.

I managed to buy all of the above groceries for a mere $23.61! WIN!
