I finally get to watch a Husker football game this season!  We don’t have cable and this week’s game is finally on a channel that we get.  I’m even happy that it starts later – that means that I can watch after we put the kids to bed!  Better get my grocery shopping done – using Nicole’ list of what’s on sale this week, of course.

Main Dishes 

  • Baked Potato Soup – Milk is on sale!  Potatoes are on sale.  I got bacon and cheese in the freezer.  Time for soup!
  • Egg Salad Sandwiches – There are some good sales on eggs this week and egg salad is easy!  There’s lots of variations, so use your favorite or try the one that I have linked here.
  • Spaghetti & Meatballs – Ground beef is at a stock up price!  Make a huge batch of meatballs and have spaghetti.  Or meatballs subs.  Or meatball pizza.
  • French Onion Burgers – Use some of that ground beef for these burgers!  Even when it’s cold outside and you don’t want to grill, you can have burgers!  I make these in a skillet on the stove.
  • Grilled Pork Chops – this is the only way that I make pork chops.  Given the amount of pork chops in our deep freeze, we need to eat this more often – we love it and it’s easy!

Looking for a yummy way to eat apples?  Try this dip – it’s become a favorite in our house.  And it couldn’t be easier.  Slice up some apples – any kind will do and combine these 3 ingredients and you have a great snack.  This week, we’ve eaten it cold.  And warmed up.  Both are great.


Cream Cheese Apple Dip


  • 8 oz package of Cream Cheese, softened
  • 3/4 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla
  • Optional: caramel sauce or toffee chips


  1. Mix it all together.
  2. Eat with apples.
  3. Seriously, it’s that easy!
