Menu Plan Monday - Week of November 30, 2014

So it was a high temperature of +2F with a wind chill of  -23F.  I'm dreaming of summer and my flowers today!

It's the 1st of December, and I'm already sick of winter. Is that bad?   I think it's because it went from being really nice to super cold just overnight - quite literally - and it was such a shock.  I guess it's a good thing we have so much soup in the freezer to eat up!  I'm also grateful for hot coffee and oatmeal first thing in the morning.  Aren't we blessed to have such good, warm food and a warm house as well?  I sure do think so!  I listen to my parents telling of having to get up and light the stove to warm the house in temperatures colder than this and I am so grateful that I don't have to do that!

After topping off our stockpile this weekend, we are still eating well.  I have $32 for the rest of the month and I am pretty sure we can do it.  We're already low on fruit for the week but we have fruit in the freezer if need be as well as canned pears and mandarin oranges, even if they're not favorites.

We have a pretty quiet week this week and we're all happy for that since next week is really busy and it continues that way through Christmas and New Year's. Such is the life in the church this time of year!  Throw in the end of semester and company and it just is really busy.  Any way, here's what we're eating this week:
