Monday Menu #16

Menu Monday #16Menu Monday #16

This week is another “Just Make Do” week at our house.

A review of our checkbook when paying some surprise medical bills and medicine “encouraged” me to plan to eat from the cabinets and freezer for the rest of this week.    The only items purchased this week were 2 gallons of milk, 2 dozen eggs, oats & 2 loaves of bread totaling less than $12.00 total.   If it is on the menu this week we already have it OR we will make adjustments to it and use what is on hand.

We begin babysitting again on Wednesday but will only be feeding our charge a snack each day after school, hence the detailed snack plan on those days.
