Menu Plan Monday - Aug. 31

Well, I have been writing weekly menu plans for a long time now, but I haven't participated in Menu Plan Monday over at the Organizing Junkie Blog in a long, long time. So, I'm back in! Here is this week's plan. If you look closely, I think you can tell it's been overcast and rainy for a few days now (there is a lot of "comfort food" on here!)

Since I just got back from vacation and the cupboards were kind of bare, I did my planning/shopping backwards. Usually, I plan based on what I have then I shop for what I need picking up sale items for the next week and the best priced fruits and veggies to fill out the meals. This week I just filled in our usual staples, picked up some deals and reasonable priced things, then planned. (We also had some venison in the freezer, so I'm trying that out this week. There is still quite a bit frozen, so I guess I'll get to try many new recipes.)

Cheese Dogs, blueberry applesauce
Venison Stew (carrots, peppers), rice, bread
snack: yogurt, popcorn

Oatmeal Apple Muffins, Fruit Smoothies
bean, green chile and cheese burritos, watermelon.
Crock pot chicken, rice, green beans, salad, garlic bread.

Sn: yogurt pops, crackers and cheese.

Love in Christ to All!!
