this menu is not hard and fast but I try to follow the plan because I spread apart the meat items (no same meat 2 nights in a row) Monday and Tuesday menus are usually followed because we are busy those nights so I choose easier preparation items. Sundays, I do try to do crock-pot menus since we are in church 10 am & 6 pm. and for Fridays I do try to plan items that do not include meat - not religious just how we did it growing up.Normally I don't have leftovers as we eat them for lunches and this will be even more so since I am homeschooling for awhile while DS#8 (child #)changes psych meds and hopefully becomes more stable.
I still have some things I need to pick up at the store maybe around $25 including 3 more gallons of milk to get through the month.Oh yeah and I got the wrong hot cereal so I may have to pay retail to get the right stuff since it is not economical to go back to Chico Grocery Outlet to get the right stuff and we do not eat this wrong stuff.(saved receipt for next trip to return next month)
I have to plan this month for breakfasts and lunches as we all have a week off for holiday.
