Menu Plan 11/15-11/21

Last week’s menu plans went well!  I actually was able to do everything I planned to do!  We are also still dealing with sickness/flu in the house so it was good having a plan to work with this past week.  Hopefully, everyone(including me!) will be fully recovered soon so that I can start on getting some holiday baking/cooking done!

This week’s meals are clean out the freezer and pantry meals.  We are working at getting a loan in place for us to get a new furnace and air conditioner due to our broken furnace hence no heat! So I am working at seeing how far the items that we have left in the freezer and pantry can stretch this week. Hubby would be pleased if I could make it to at least Wednesday preferably Thursday before I did any kind of grocery shopping just so if we need to put a down payment on the work we can do it.  If meals start looking like a mix and match that is because we are using up the odds and ends.

For this week’s lunches that are for the kids and me!  Unless we are having leftovers, our lunches are served with apple slices or carrot sticks along with fruit juice or water.  Hubby usually takes a dinner leftover along with various snacks for his work lunch so I don’t take the time to plan his lunches.

There was no shopping trip this past week!  I have only been in the store long enough to pick up milk and some hash browns for Sunday morning breakfast.  Since this is actually payday week, hopefully I will make it to the store by the end of the week!  I need to do a big shop, including my monthly Sam’s Club run!

I haven't been by in a long while. I was going through some old posts on my blog and your name popped up.

Hope you're feeling better soon.

Love your snack basket idea.
