Menu Plan Monday (March 14, 2011)

With Ellie getting sick last week & none of us sleeping well, I didn't follow last week's menu plan very closely. I can't even remember what we ended up eating - a lot of quick meals, and pasta with meat sauce from the freezer. So, this week has a few repeats. I'm going to try to plan breakfasts and lunches this week, and see how that works out. Usually our breakfasts consist of toast and fruit, but I thought I'd try a bit of variety this week. I try to keep breakfasts and lunches pretty simple, so that I'm not spending all day in the kitchen. The grocery challenge is still going all right. I'm making an effort to use up some things in our fridge this week, so that's the basis for my plan.

Cheese biscuits-sounds yummy.
I have a home management binder too. I'm not super organized, usually, so this has been great for me.
Have a blessed week. :)

Ginger cookies get a big yes from me. I am very impressed with your detailed planning.
