This Week's Menu Plan

Another week, another menu!  I'm trying to use what is in my stockpile to keep costs down.  I have a ton of Ragu, so I think I'll use that in a few meals.

Sunday: *Bake granola bars
Monday: *(B) Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal using fresh pumpkin puree (my whole family LOVES this recipe!)
*(D) Spaghetti with meat sauce, asperagus, garlic bread
*Bake Pumpkin Scones 
Tuesday: *(B) Pumpkin Scones
*(D) Chicken Stir Fry
Wednesday: *(B) Oatmeal or cereal
*(D) Lasagna (make a double batch and freeze one for later)
*Bake pumpkin bread muffins
Thursday:  *(B) Pumpkin Scones
*We eat dinner at youth group on Thursdays
Friday : * (B) This is Nevada Day, so there is no school (and no work for me!)  Maybe we'll do some homemade biscuits and eggs
*(D) Crockpot Chicken Tortilla Soup (thinking I will modify this recipe a bit)

We eat a lot of oatmeal in our house. I buy organic rolled oats at winco for less that $1 a pound.  We add a little brown sugar and then things like dried cranberries, bananas, strawberries, or blueberries.  It's cheap and tastes way better than store bought packets (healthier too!).  Baked oatmeals usually have a bit more sugar in them, so we eat it as a special treat for breakfast.  You can eat it plain or with a bit of milk poured over it (any milk variation is good...we drink almond milk at our house, so we use that).
