Menu Plan Monday 8/24-8/30


**Another week is upon us so that means it is time for another menu plan! This is just a plan and it could change on the cook’s whim!

Last week’s menus went off without too much trouble! I think I had one day where things didn’t go fully as planned but we ate and my freezer is getting VERY bare! That’s okay less food to lose if something happens while we are on vacation at the end of the week. I hope that everyone was able to hop over to Happy to be at Home last week to see my menu in action! The concert last Sunday was great. The garage sale this past weekend went well but I didn’t sell as much as I expected. The Metro Car Cruise according to the news was a success, we stayed home this year BUT we could still hear the revving of engines about 2 miles away!

This week’s grocery shopping was a light week! I spent less than $30 for everything I needed to make it thru till Wednesday when I’ll go to get a few things for our vacation!! Hubby and I (along with the munchkins) are planning on a little vacation over the Labor Day weekend so this week’s menu is a short, and sweet! I am not going to be cooking too much as we have several things in the fridge that need to get eaten as well before we leave.

Lunches listed are for the kids and me. Usually with our lunches I serve carrot sticks, and some kind of fruit along with juice or water to drink. Hubby usually takes dinner leftovers each day along with several items for snacks.
