I am late getting this done for this week, and I just realized I never posted last week's menu. I have been distracted by other things, but I have done the menu. Last week was a wreck, but this week seems to be looking better. Also, being a couple of days into the menu I have discovered a new recipe that I really liked (AJ liked it, too so it is going into regular rotation) - the lemon basil pork chops.
Last week was also a learning week. I was hoping to be able to switch from shopping at Publix to shopping at Aldi. I really like Aldi, but I don't think it is going to work for me right now. It takes an hour each way to get there, and it means that I spend all day for grocery shopping. Also, they don't have everything that we need. I HATE having to hit two different grocery stores in the same week. I tend to spend way more money when I have to go to two different stores, and that happened last week. I think Publix has won out as my store of choice for now; it is close (about 10 minutes if I go to the nicer of the two stores that are by my house), I spent half this week that I spent last week (I stocked up on a couple of things - cereal, milk, and almond milk since they were all on sale), and they have the produce and weird canned items that I need.

How have your last couple of weeks been? Have you ever had the battle to figure out where to shop? What lead you to that decision? As always, I am linking up to Org Junkie's Meal Plan Monday.
