Menu Plan Monday - Week of May 19, 2013

Baked Fish, Rice, Zucchini, and Fruit - Yum!
Wow, I really didn't meant to drop off the radar like that.  Can I blame the flu, the end of the semester, company, and general busy-ness happening all at once?   Ugh.  It never rains but it pours, I guess, and at least I'm not my cousin, who has had 2 surgeries in her immediate family plus 3 others in her extended family in the last week alone.  Yikes!

We're still eating well and working on cleaning out those freezers.   We only did a little shopping this past week - ketchup was on sale at Menard's of all places so we got two bottles for 88cents each and we went to Sam's Club to get toilet paper and bought mango salsa, strawberries, pears, salmon and mixed greens too.  That was about it for shopping this week!

We have lots of fruit left from the last few weeks - apples, blueberries, and a pineapple; as well as half a gallon of milk, cheese, and a few random vegetables floating around the fridge.  Combine that with the meat in the freezer and the dry goods in the cupboard, we are well set!   We received word this week that our CSA will start delivering in about a month - God willing and weather permitting, of course - and we are excited about that!

We have several evening things this week and John is working both Monday and Tuesday evenings so we have to scramble, eat and get to where we need to go.  Thankfully, my semester at work is DONE (WHOO HOO!) and I just have to work on prepping for fall and my schoolwork (just, hah!).  While it does mean a decrease in commitments, the actual workload doesn't change much other than becoming more flexible so I have a little more time to bake and such. I like that.  We get to spend part of Saturday with my in-laws - I'm so excited about that! - and we'll bring some food with too.  The kids asked to bake cookies so we're doing that twice this week - so we have enough to take over to Grammie and PopPop's  house as well as some to eat here at home.
