(Saved 78%.)

This was a great quick trip. I needed a few staples (like milk, eggs, flour, sugar) and I picked up a few things to stock my pantry & freezer with (Rotel, Hunt's, cream cheese, kraft singles) since they were on sale. If you can work in the stock-up items into your regular shopping trips, it becomes virtually painless to keep your pantry stocked because you never have to pay full price!

So what am I cooking this week for dinner?

Wednesday - BBQ Chicken Quesadillas (just needed cream cheese today)
Thursday - Chili & Rice
Friday - Eat out, using a Living Social gift card (that hubby begged me to buy)
Saturday - Leftovers (we've got some great butternut squash soup left that I made with my Bountiful Baskets squash this week!)
Sunday - Superbowl Party - stay tuned
Monday - Egg McMuffins (hubby's request - still need english muffins)

We're keeping it low-key this week. I love trying new recipes, but we're keeping it simple so we can focus on the party on Sunday. Fun!

do you know if cream cheese freezes? I freeze all kinds of other cheese but never tried cream cheese. What do you think?

I freeze cream cheese all the time. It freezes great if you are planning to use it in cooking. If you're planning to use it to spread on bagels or toast, I think it changes the texture just a touch.
