Menu Plan Monday


I've made my menu which is my first step to sticking to my budget. You'll notice that I have sausage on the menu again.... no it's not two weeks in a row....although it could be with all the sausage I have in the freezer! Nope last Saturday I forgot to thaw the sausage, and so when it came time for dinner, and I went to get it, I realized my mistake. No problem though, I had bought Steak-um's on sale very cheap so they were stocked in the freezer as well. Dh loves these, and we never ever have them. So, we had those for dinner. It was actually a big hit with our kids too, so I'll look for more on sale in the future. They make a great back up when my original meal plan backfires!

The second thing is I always leave off Sunday's, because the day has past already, and I run my menu Sunday thru Saturday. We were to have friends come over after church yesterday, so I made a big vat of Chili to serve. We got the call that morning that 3 of their 4 children were sick, so we have a lot of chili leftover. While we would have loved to have fellowshipped with them....I now have some great chili to use as leftovers this week. So I'll stop rambling and post the menu. lol!
