It’s not only a new week, but it’s definitely a Monday. But, the good news is that I’m getting a chance to have a baking day and get a few breakfast foods made up to go in the freezer for the kids to grab in the mornings. I’ve not gotten a chance to do this in a while and my poor freezer shows it. But, I’ve also got to get a menu plan going again. It’s really hurting the budget not having a plan in place. The other key will be to keep everyone well so I don’t have to change it around! LOL
I’m also going to be planning lots of soups and stews over the next several weeks – (1) because we love soups and stews, especially in cold weather and (2) to help keep food costs down. Soups and stews are a good way to stretch your food and your budget and keep costs down, plus you’re able to feed more people just by adding a few extra veggies (and sometimes just a tad more liquid).
We should have leftovers 3 of those nights, so I may end up dropping the spaghetti. We’ll see how the week goes!
