Menu Plan Monday - Week of September 12


Wow, it's another whole week today.  Sheesh, I think the time flies faster as I get older (or something like that anyway!).  I did a 'freeze cooking' grocery run this weekend and then a trip to the farmer's market to round out what I needed.  I got a great deal on flour - 99 cents for a bag with coupon (limit 1) and then $1.50 for the next.  So I got my 2 bags of flour for about $2.50!  Hurray!  That means I have enough for all my freezer cooking this week.

Since time is at a premium for me, I built my freezer cooking into this menu plan.  Here it is:
