I'm so ready for spring. We are gearing up to start our seeds inside over the next couple of weeks. Planning a new fence around the garden too. (Sorry elk and deer, I'm totally winning the battle this year. You'll have to find something else to destroy.) I can't wait for all the fresh salad greens, homegrown green beans, sun warmed tomatoes. Mmmm. In the meantime, I'm digging out all the weird grains hidden in the back of my cupboards to try some new things. Last week I also happened upon a sale for whole chickens at $.79 per pound and picked up two of them. So we'll be having one of those this week.
Here's what's cooking.
Crockpot Whole Grain Breakfast Cereal with dried fruit and brown sugar
Spelt Muffins and fruit
Whole crockpot chicken, mashed potatoes & gravy, peas
Homemade Chicken Noodle Soup (with leftover chicken carcass) with Buttery Bread Machine Rolls
Taco Salad and Rocky Road Dessert (daughter is cooking tonight) from BH & G cookbook
Dinner at my Mom's but I'm bringing the rolls
Check back tomorrow to see how far I stretched my $60 budget and link up and tell the rest of us about your recent grocery shopping trip. And don't forget to wander over to see more Menu Plans here.
