Menu Plan Monday - Week of January 23rd, 2011

A not very good photo of John's birthday dinner earlier this month.


Well, nothing like being AWOL last week!  The kids had really bad head colds and lucky John had a sinus infection!  I spent a lot of time blowing noses, washing bedding, and massaging sore temples!  Uff! It was quite the week.

Anyway, somehow I managed to avoid the bugs and we're back to 'normal' this week.   We're still doing the pantry challenge and I didn't buy any groceries this last week do to having to take care of everyone.  I did go buy milk and eggs on Sunday since we were almost out of both (one egg doesn't go very far!) and bought a little bit of fruit since we only had grapefruit, which the kids won't eat.  I have about 4 dollars ($1 and three in change) plus my $5 gift card for groceries this coming Saturday.

I just realized we're eating an awful lot of peanut butter this week - might need to change that out to pumpkin butter. Yum!  We'll see how that goes!  If I get too tired of eating Peanut Butter I might just have to dig out that jar....
