Meal Plan Monday - January 17, 2011

Saturday we spent the morning bringing in the food for the next 9 weeks. It was our first big grocery with the bus, and SUE did fantastic. To unload from the Walmart portion, we formed a fire-line and had our two overflowing carts unloaded in no time!

A glimpse into what SUE looked like after ALDI, the half-way point
We have a busy week planned, but with weather coming in, I'll be hoping to be snowed in. All the while dreaming of spring. I don't even like to garden, but I've found myself pondering over seed catalogs. Maybe this is the year I discover my green thumb?!Most of our meals are coming from this great cookbook:
 365 Quick, Easy & Inexpensive Dinner Menus

This week we'll be enjoying:

Monday - Cincinnati Chili

Tuesday (Bryan night meeting) - Brown Sugar Honey Ham, Honey Glazed Sweet Potatoes, Honey Bear Carrots (more about this menu tomorrow!)
