Our $85 grocery trip + what's for eats this week!

Typically, we only shop at our local Walmart. But in some instances, we also shop at VG's. This week was one in which an item we needed was only at VG's, and we also picked up a specialty item that cannot be found in a typical grocery store.

Here's what we bought from Walmart:
  • Bananas
  • Celery
  • Lettuce
  • Tomato
  • Yellow onions
  • Potatoes
  • Gallon of organic milk
  • Frozen peas
  • Ground beef (5 lbs)
  • Garlic bread
  • Penne noodles (2)
  • Sour cream
  • Monterey Jack cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Mushrooms
  • Ketchup
  • Flour
  • 12 cans of Coke
  • Canned refried beans
  • Mild enchilada sauce
  • Organic food pouches for Bug (4)
  • Dish soap
We spent $69 there. At VG's, we bought a bag of stuffing bread for Thanksgiving. The cost was $3. 

And our last stop was at the Hickory Farms kiosk inside a mall. There, we bought two original cheese balls to use on Thanksgiving and Christmas. The cost was $13.

Here is our menu plan for the week:

Mushroom rigatoni bake
Pasta with garlic bread
Mum's chili with bread
Chicken enchilada rice casserole
Creamy chicken pot pie soup with bread
