Frugal Meal Planning with a Hurricane week of October 28th

Happy Monday! Welcome to my week of chaos. Will or won't I have power this week due the Hurricane  Sandy storm. we have an electric stove and oven   I stocked up on cold cuts and bread.  I also roasted a chicken as well so we can pick on that all week long.   I didn't stock on any meat sales since I don't want to throw out meat if our freezer is out for more than a few hours. We had no power for 4 days with Hurricane Irene. and had to throw out some meat.   Once the storm passes we may grill but that probably won't be until Wednesday. Even Halloween is up in the air if we have power out and damages to our area.    

Sunday Hamburgers and butternut squash fries 

Monday Mexican Lasagna ( I can eat this cold after baked it -making early Monday morning) 

The rest of the week will be most likely sandwiches and maybe grill foods.  We had the best grilled potatoes with Irene on the grill. 

 If you love coffee, then you will love this Keurig Coffee Maker giveaway that  I am apart of! I love my Keurig  Monday is the last day to enter!!

Glad to see I'm not the only one nervous about meal planning with Sandy looming... I woke up in the middle of the night last night wondering how we will save all the food if it hits. Hopefully everyone is safe!
