What a blessing to have just groceried for the next eight weeks! I'm working on getting my menus for this year over to PeacefulHome.net. The first half of 2008 are over there - the second half I was too pregnant or with a newborn!
Tonight I just browned 8 lbs. of ground beef with onions. I baggied and froze it to be ready for meals over the next couple months. Such a time saver!
Most of my meals are coming from the Jeub cookbook, Love in the House. Economical and nourishing. Also I'm using Quick Cooking's 2001 Annual Recipes, and ones from The Family Homestead. Our themes are crockpot, soups, beans. We're trying to keep our costs down, but with 4-H ramping up, meals need to be quick to prepare and eat.
This week we'll be enjoying:
Monday - Cheesy Wild Rice Soup and Biscuits
Tuesday - Pasta with Cream Sauce, Fruit
Wednesday - Chicken Patty Sandwiches & Popcorn (AWANA Night)
Thursday - Spaghetti & Meatballs, Garlic Bread, Salad (Heidi's 2nd Birthday!!)
Friday - Pizza at Bible Study
Saturday - Stroganoff and Noodles, Green Beans
