Menu Monday

It's the end of the month and we're counting our pennies due to the down payment on two sets of braces that will be going on in just a few weeks. So this weeks menu is going to be mostly comprised of what is already on hand and with a much looser plan than normal. I have a few ideas up my sleeve for meals and I'll probably grab a few basics at the store this week.

On hand I have some fruit and veggies, baking supplies, and some meat I've saved in the freezer. We have plenty of eggs too. Usually weeks like these are a fun challenge where my creativity is put to the test and I tend to come up with new family favorites as a result.

Some dinner ideas that I have are:

  • A pasta salad using leftover meat from the freezer, some veggies that need to be used up and THIS dressing.
  • These Nacho Potatoes that I think the kids are really going to like.
  • Grilled tuna and cheese sandwiches with carrot sticks
  • Mile High Biscuits and gravy
We'll see what kinds of things I can come up with this week.

Hello! I was drawn to your blog when a friend posted your homemade *oxy*clean* recipe! LOVE IT! I just dropped my hubby at the airport for a work trip this week so that makes this week "Mother Hubbard" week. Time to use up every thing in the cupboards, fridge, freezer, pantry shelves.. How long can we go without having to hit the store? Meals get really creative and odd when I am making the kids play this game with me! I enjoy the challenge and the ability to clean everything thing out! Enjoy your scrimping week!
