Menu Plan, er, Tuesday - Week of March 3, 2013

Butternut Squash Soup, French Bread, and Grapefruit
Good heavens - I think time just got away from me.  I certainly didn't mean to take over a week - and almost two! - off from posting.  Thanks for sticking with me here!

Grocery budget has been good and today John and the kiddos went to Sam's while I taught Jazzercise. They are in the same area and it was a great way to combine trips. We had a snow day here in the Twin Cities - at least some of us did - and the kids were excited to get out of house for a while.  We had left the snow pants and boots at school yesterday so they couldn't play outside today. We bought fish and TP with the money we had saved up from previous shopping trips (including the past 2 weeks) and spent part of our grocery budget for this week as well on a case of mandarin oranges and some pretzels for the children to take as a snack to school. Good all the way around!

So here's out menu for this week:

We have lots of evening things this week - honestly I'm getting a little tired of the run-run-run we seem to have this Lent.  At least it makes dinner planning easy, right?
