Menu Plan Monday - Week of May 30th


I feel like summer is a run-away train at the moment! I am revamping a lot of things in my life right now, and how we prepare for our meals is one of them.

We've quit buying meat, except for seafood, from our local grocery stores and started buying locally grown and processed. This jacked the price way up, so we're cutting back on meat consumptions in general. I'm also looking at how to handle teaching evening classes this fall. John is perfectly capable of cooking (in fact, he did the cooking the first 9 1/2 years of our marriage!) but his plate is even more full than mine right now and I want to make things as simple as possible.

So, starting in August, we're actually going to experiment with freezer cooking. I hate just the thought of it, since I'm all about fresh now, but we'll see what we can do!

Anyway, this week we're eating pretty much like we have been:

Sunday, May 30:
Breakfast: Cheerios with Bananas
Lunch: Leftovers
Dinner: Baked Eggs, Oatmeal Muffins, Bacon and Fruit Salad
