Menu Plan Monday - September 7, 2009

We've had an unusually calm weekend which was such a blessing to enable us to really prepare for next weekend's vacation. Friday evening my family took me out for my birthday dinner. We've been trying to really reduce our dining out to save money, so it's become such a treat to have a night off cooking.

Tonight we were able to fellowship with two of our favorite families. Isn't it relaxing to spend time with other families that are on the same page? Not that we should isolate ourselves, but every now and again it's nice to be with folks that "get" us.

Monday we'll hopefully wrap up laundry and packing for the trip. Then we'll pretend to pay attention through four days of school before heading to Florida. The pantry and freezer are so empty. I'm even wondering if unplugging the upright freezer for a week would save significant energy. So here is our scrounge menu for the week:

Monday (Labor Day) - Ranch Beans, Cornbread

Tuesday - Baked French Toast, Sausage, Eggs

Wednesday (AWANA/4-H Meeting) - Hot Dogs, Chips

Thursday - BBQ Meatball Sandwiches, Oven Fries, Peaches

Friday - Chicken Broccoli Salad Wraps, Fruit

Then 9 days of no cooking!
