Menu Plan Monday - Week of January 8, 2012


Mmmm - Salmon!  I love fish - most seafood actually - and salmon is one of those things that we try to have on  hand at all times because it's good for us - all those omega 3's - and we just love it (all 4 of us!).   We are fortunate enough to have a neighbor who telecommutes to Alaska for work, and she supplies us with fresh salmon a couple of times a year.  I also have a cousin who lives there and sends us freezer-packed salmon when her freezer gets too full.  Yes, I am totally spoiled!

We're working on eating from the pantry this month and a $50 for the month grocery budget.  Not too shabby this last week - I spent $17 and change on milk, fruit, chicken noodle soup, diced tomatoes and salad greens.  The fruit should last us into next week and the salad might too, but I will need to buy more milk.  The chicken noodle soup and tomatoes are for the pantry, so it should last us a while.   There's a couple of good things on quite a sale this week, so we'll see how far I can stretch the budget this week. I'm hoping to keep it to about $10 - including 2 gallons of milk.
