I thought I would share our "end of the month" menu (this week and next week) as we finish up our January food challenge...
Sunday (the 20th): Out of town
Monday (the 21st): On Your Own (coming back into town)
Tuesday (the 22nd): Chicken and dumplins, green beans, homemade sandwich bread/butter
Wednesday (the 23rd): Crescent burgers (new recipe), garlic and herb potato wedges (new recipe)
Thursday (the 24th): Panko-encrusted swai, wild rice, mini cheddar popovers (new recipe), carrots/Ranch
Friday (the 25th): Sweet and sour chicken with fried rice...always a favorite around here!
Saturday (the 26th): Shakes and Popcorn (the older kids were sad to miss that last week...)
Sunday (the 27th): Breakfast- Crescent cinnamon buns
Dinner- Roasted Ranch and Potatoes (new recipe), carrots
Monday (the 28th): Breakfast for dinner- Homemade waffles (new recipe) and bacon
Tuesday (the 29th): Beef Tips over noodles (new recipe)
Wednesday (the 30th): OYO (On Your Own)
Thursday (the 31st): Taco Pasta Bake
I am sure there will be some cinnamon swirl bread in there too...it is a regular around here!
You will notice several "new" recipes. That is because I am having to explore a bit with new recipes using ingredients I have. :)
I think I have 8 dollars for the rest of the month. Or six. I am not sure. I am going to have to buy some milk and bananas, but I THINK we are going to make it. By the skin of our teeth. The kids have complained a time or two wishing I had done just a bit more for the challenge but overall they have handled it all well. Most of the time. :)
What are you having to eat this week?
