Menu Plan Monday--January 10

School is out today due to an ice storm. We are very excited for the game tonight and hopefully we'll be able to watch it! We have another short week next week for school. I need lots of things to keep the kids busy.

Leelee's idea of staying busy is baking. That's great, but not for my waistline!

Here's what's on the menu this week. I'm in the shop my pantry mode, so these are recipes for things I generally have in my pantry/freezer at all times. In general, they are VERY affordable especially since I started stockpiling.

Sunday: Hearty Beef and Vegetable Soup
Monday: Pulled Pork
Tuesday: Chicken & Dumplings
Wednesday: BBQ Pork Sandwiches
Thursday: Mexican Round Steak
Friday: Pizza (any attempt to change this leads to revolt)
Saturday: Spaghetti

And just a note to myself so I don't forget the things I MUST buy at the grocery store this week:

spaghetti sauce
mozarella cheese
Buns (tho I may make some from scratch, I'm not sure what Tuesday will bring)


  1. right now, cupcakes. I got the Martha Stewart cupcake book and she's been working her way through it. Right at this moment, though, she's making her first pie completely from scratch. I'll supervise if she asks.


Thanks and have a great day!
