Monday Menu #13

This week did not require a large shopping trip since we are eating from the cabinets and freezer and only purchasing dairy, produce and bread as needed.   We are having guests for lunch each day during band camp and did increase our lunch plan to accommodate a larger lunch crowd but we still not change our over all menu.   We haven’t even needed to purchase drinks after the great drink haul I grabbed at Save A Lot

This is month has been set aside to devote to preparing your home for the upcoming school year.   If you do not have school aged children you can devote it to getting your office, craft room or other area “under control”.   We have also set aside every 7 days for Weekly Maintenance and Outside Maintenance since most homes have some sort of yard or outdoor space that needs regular maintenance.

Menu Monday #9 (& Weekly Shopping Trip)

Menu Monday Week #9

Menu Monday #9

This week’s menu and shopping were easy since we moved most of last week’s meals back a few days due to hospital/doctor visits.  As you can see the homemade chicken soup was added to this week’s list.  That would be because I had thawed my “soup bucket” and needed to consume it soon.

As a matter of fact it is in the crock pot as I type this.

Below you will find our planned menu as well as our main shopping trips.
