Week 13 Grocery List -- with Prices!

Ingredients for Week 13 Dinners
I will be purchasing:
1 head garlic ($.39)
1 bunch green onions ($.50)
1 head lettuce ($.98)
baby carrots (1 lb $1.59)
1-2 cucumbers ($.50)
broccoli- you could use any green vegetable ($1.19)
2 limes ($.89)
cilantro ($.33)
ginger ($.39)
fruit (mango $.59)
lime juice (I completely forgot this! I'll estimate $2.00 until I have a chance to go back)
1 bag tortilla chips ($.88)
8 oz mozzarella and/or Swiss cheese ($1.50)
sour cream ($.78)
milk (1 gallon $1.97)
eggs (I went ahead and got extra - 18 eggs for $1.99)
optional: 1 loaf French bread ($1.59)
optional: 1 tomato

In total, I spent $18.06 on this week's dinners.
Here is the approximate breakdown:
Chicken Nachos, Green Salad, Corn $1.99
Beef Stroganoff, Carrots, Peas $2.37
Shannon's Chicken Enchiladas, Green Salad, Corn $3.48
Salmon Patties, Garlic Bread, Broccoli $2.69
Cheesy Egg Pie, Hashbrowns, Fruit $4.82
Thai Chicken Satay, Rice, Cucumbers, Broccoli $2.65

I will be using from my pantry:
1 loaf cheddar cheese
1 lb ground beef
6 chicken breasts
2 (5 to 7 oz) cans boneless, skinless salmon
Simply Potatoes refrigerated Southwestern style hashbrowns (I also saw a new brand of refrigerated hashbrowns on sale this week for $.69. They don't make Southwestern style, so you'd have to add some spices to get the heat in the salmon patties.)
1 (15 oz) can green enchilada sauce (I'll use 2 (10 oz) cans)
1 (10 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
flour tortillas
1 bag egg noodles
saltine crackers, breadcrumbs, etc
frozen corn
frozen peas
1 packet Lipton onion soup mix
tartar sauce
Worchester sauce
rice vinegar
peanut butter
soy sauce
sesame oil
brown sugar
chili powder
garlic powder
minced onion
seasoned salt
dry mustard

I will stock up on these deals:
4 more Don Julio tortilla chips ($.88 each = $3.52)
5 (24 oz) jars Pace salsa ($1.88 each = $9.40)
1 more Western Family sour cream for next week ($.78)
3 (16 oz) Chachies refrigerated salsa ($.99 each = $2.97)
12 pack Frigo string cheese ($2.59 plus I had a $.40/1 coupon)
2 lbs ground beef to freeze ($3.38)
2 Western Family light cream cheese ($.99 each = $1.98)

Just as a public service announcement, I thought I'd share that Reams is having an amazing sale on boneless, skinless chicken breasts. They are advertising frozen 10 lb boxes for only $13.90 (that's $1.39/lb!). It looks like this is a while-supplies-last, limit-1-per-customer kind of deal. I had to take Grandpa to Costco the other day, so I picked up a frozen 10 lb bag for $19.90 since we were running low on chicken breasts. Otherwise, I would be sure to go pick up some chicken!
