breakfast: (no order)

what is your plan for the week? i think about what i have in the fridge, then i look at the sales paper, then i write out a menu list. it is very time consuming, but i am getting better at it. will have to blog about the proper way to meal plan and grocery shop!

update: i spent around 100$ including beer, draino, meds, and soap. not to bad. i didn’t make the bagels, the lunches (except lentils) or the chipotle turkey(subbing chicken cause, damn, turkey is expensive) hubby was working all weekend so, this boys and i ate leftovers and such. the pork casserole is great, i did modify it some, and the breakfast quiche is great too. hubby wants me to modify that to include biscuits instead of pastry crust. the man is a carb lover, what can i say. my menu for next week will include several things from this menu…so half of my work is done for me! yay me!!
