2012 $50 Weekly Menu Plan Week #48: Welcome to Creative (premeditated) Leftover Week; We hope that you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving with your friends and families! While we shared our menu with you last week, we neglected to mention that it was also our Camping menu, as we spent several days with friends and family. As such, we ended up bringing a lot of leftovers home with us, some planned, some not so planned.
This week we purchased the following items: apples, cream cheese, potatoes, celery, lettuce, fresh broccoli, cranberries, pineapple, ham shank, milk, sliced cheese, tangelos, (real) butter, gelatin (several flavors for cooking),dates, coconut, bananas, pears, frozen berries, grapefruit and sour cream. We also discovered a tiny little market in town that offers half price produce on Mondays and scored a huge bundle of fresh beets and greens for $1. Total Spent $43.06

A few things I’d like to share: We collected a few more peppers from our plants and managed to dig 20 or so pounds of sweet potatoes from the garden. The crab meat used in this weeks menu is from blue crabs that we caught ourselves, as is the Halibut. It’s important to the budget to use what you have available!
