This Week's Menu (8/19/13)

I'm trying to use what's in my fridge/freezer/pantry this week.  I made a produce run at Trader Joes earlier this week and spent just under $20.  I'm going to try to make it through the week without spending any grocery money so I can put this week's grocery budget into our savings to pay for the new baby (arriving in October)!

Here's what we will be having for our dinners:

1.  Stuffed Bell Peppers (using the pre-made stuffing I have in my freezer and fresh bell peppers)

2.  Lentil tacos (also in my freezer) with homemade tortilla shells

3.  Crock Pot- Smokey Chicken & Black Bean Soup (from the freezer)

4.  Pulled Pork Sandwiches (from the freezer) on homemade ciabatta rolls

5.  Dinner with our church

6.  Something easy-maybe sandwiches-as we'll be driving during dinner time and then at a meeting

7.  Salad and leftovers night

Yay for freezer cooking!

Breakfasts will be the usual...oatmeal with chopped fruit or dried cranberries or raisins most mornings, with a baked peanut butter oatmeal on one morning.  I do actually plan to use my bread machine to make cinnamon rolls one morning as a special treat.

Lunches will mostly be sandwiches (pb&j, pb& honey, grilled cheese, turkey & cheese), homemade mac and cheese, salads, and fruits and veggies.

Snacks are fruit or veggies for one snack, and homemade granola bars for the other (morning & afternoon).

All the smoke in the air from the fire is tricking me into thinking it's fall (it's just dark outside).  I have fall candles burning, and am thinking it's time to start making some homemade syrups for making lattes.  I LOVE fall!
