Menu Plan Monday - Week of October 17


Another week come and gone.  Where does that time go?  It seems like things are just speeding up around here.  Anyway, we're back and we do need to eat! 

After several weeks of stocking the pantry - spending roughly $60/week - we have stuffed shelves and a freezer that can't fit anything more!  The kids and John had to eat a half-empty box of ice cream Saturday when I got home with groceries to fit something in. They didn't even complain about it! :)

My goal over the next few weeks is to eat some of this out - and certainly no more freezer cooking for a while!  We have plenty in there!

The kids are at their baby sitter's on Thursday and Friday, since it is MEA weekend here in Minnesota and they don't have school. So, they don't get a sack lunch on those days.  Also, they have pizza for hot lunch on Wednesday (remember those days?), so no lunch then either!

Here's what we're eating this week:
