Grocery shopping.. ouch!

We went grocery shopping this morning, the first time in awhile. We've been eating what we have on hand and only going for milk and bread and fresh vegetables. Wow, it hurt to see the prices! We spent $89.23 and got:

3 bags of frozen vegetables
1 pound baby carrots
3 bananas
2 containers of Wholly Guacamole (buy 1 get 1 free)
1 package of pico de gallo
1 pound of turkey pastrami
3 beef roasts
2 packages of beef brats
1 pound ground beef
1 pound ground turkey
1 package turkey franks
5 turkey pot pies (the man person likes these for lunch when I'm at work)
1/2 gallon of milk
1 small package of sharp cheddar cheese
1 package of Lavash bread
1 loaf of whole wheat bread
1 large container of coffee creamer
2 containers of the man person's instant decaf (had a coupon for $1 off one)
2 cans chili with no beans (for chili dogs)
2 gallons of distilled water for drinking
4 rolls of toilet paper
2 12 packs of diet soda

At any rate, the prices were a little unsettling but we shouldn't need to do 'big shopping' again for at least three weeks. I almost fear what the prices will be then!

One of the roasts is going to be in the pressure cooker later today so that changes the menu for the rest of this week. We still have some of the browned carne picada to eat and will have that tomorrow night but tonight we'll feast on beef roast, gravy, red potatoes, onions, and baby carrots with a nice tossed salad on the side. We'll have leftovers so I'll turn those into something else, more than likely a lower carb pot pie made with Lavash bread.

I'm looking for more ideas to use the leftover roast so if you have any, please share them with me.
