Menu planning saves me time and energy. But I didn't really get going with it until I started linking with orgjunkie's weekly Menu Monday post. If you want inspiration or share your own menu visit here.
What frugal cook can't resist. At $0.40/lb from Wal-Mart, it's a real bargain. We were out of Miracle Whip though, and had to settle for Mayo and Grey Poupon.
But now for this week's menu. Since heavy-duty shopping has already been done, I'll spend more time cooking. I'll need plenty of motivation. Much of our staycation was spent staying in. Which is fun, if that was the plan. Along the way, my brain started a boycott on cooking. And I hardly made anything I planned and kept avoiding the kitchen. I did roast a turkey, which may explain the hazy-lazy feeling.
Guess what we are having for breakfast? That's right, yogurt! BOGO sale at Publix plus two $1 off Qs makes these only $0.25 each!
I'm trying to get dinner super early (like 5pm) since the kids no longer nap. This means serve whatever they will eat the fastest, hence cereal. No matter how much they eat before AWANA, they are hungry when they get home that night. I'm counting on the milk in the cereal to get them all sleepy. If that doesn't work, we'll have oatmeal!
