Menu Plan Monday - Mar 8 - 14


It snowed here last night. I love snow. But I am sick of winter. Can spring please, please, please hurry up? I'm tired of being cold. I'm tired of being stuck inside. I'm tired of my chickens being up to their ankles in mud!

Sunny skies, warm breezes, the smell of flowers and fresh cut grass. These are the things I long for. I know that it is just a few weeks away - but I want it NOW!

This week on Frugal Feasting I'm going to be talking about Soup and Bread. We have a soup and bread meal at least once a week. Soup is (usually) so cheap and filling and good for you. Add a homemade bread of some kind and there you have it - comfort food for cheap! I'll post some recipes for bread and soup and talk about why having soup and bread once a week is such an easy way to watch your wallet.

I'm doing some baking today with the intention of having some leftovers for snacks. Yeah, we'll see how that works. Seems like whenever I bake with the intention of leftovers, the family is famished and eats it all up. Maybe if I hide it?

Breakfasts:
  • Oatmeal muffins with blackberries
  • homemade oatmeal
  • cereal (great sale at Safeway!)
  • toast with jam or cinnamon sugar
  • leftover waffles from lunch today
Lunches:
  • leftovers
  • pasta salad with veggies and feta cheese
  • whatever else we come up with
Dinners:
That's all for me, I'm going to go back to lamenting my lack of spring. Guess what? It's supposed to snow again tonight. ARRRGGHH!! Make it stop!!

I didn't get to several of my planned menu items last week either. I am at a complete loss for this week as well! My kids' input: scrambled eggs and noodles.

Hey, don't feel bad for not making everything on your menu last week. Same thing happened at my house. I'm hoping this week is smoother sailing.

We do a soup night once a week during the winter. Once the weather hits about 55 - 60 degrees for the high, hubby says no more. We're almost there.

Found your site from orgjunkie's love all the recipes for beans. We get dry beans all the time and I'm trying to use them in recipes more. Your recipes look great!

I was sick this past week and most of my menu went out the window too! We have a weekly soup/salad or soup/sandwich night. I think this saves us tons of money and I just love soup!

:) great blog

Sounds yummy - I love soup when it's cold out, and since spring is (hopefully) almost here, I need to focus on soup this week too.
