Menu Plan, er, Tuesday - Week of March 6, 2011

The Pumpkin Spice Bundt Cake I made for Thanksgiving! (Before adding the powdered sugar topping.)
I just thought this looked yummy tonight...

We made a big 'stock up' run this weekend and spent $65 for a whole bunch of stuff.  We also received a large cooler full of meat - venison and bear - from my cousin who bagged two bucks and a very, very (~600lbs) large bear this year.  I'm grateful that we received some 'extras' with that - it makes it easier to 'stretch' things with fabulous gifts like that.  Don't worry, my cousin gives most of his meat to his son - who has a very low income and 4 children to feed, so we get the leftovers after he helps them and himself!  I should be easily able to stick to my budget of $15 for this next week with all the 'stuff' we have in the house presently. 

With all that, what are we eating this week?
