Last week I was off in my thinking by a week – we didn’t have the family conference on Saturday.  It is this Saturday instead.  I was wondering why I couldn’t remember what was on the menu.  That is because there wasn’t anything on there.  🙂  I pulled a few frozen soups/chilis out of the freezer, ones that only had a serving or two to them.  I added in some rice and toast and voila, lunch was served.
The freezer is looking more void, must still has food in it.  A lot of the pre-made meals and left over soups are used up, or will be by the end of this week.  In getting items out for this week I was able to rearrange the freezer and found some items tucked into the door or under larger bags.  These will be added to next mont’s menu.  (I’ve started making it out and have almost 15 meals, 10 of which a significant part is in the freezer or fridge.
I know that I will have to start filling the freezer again in May.  A freezer cooking day is already planned, to help restock our muffin supply.  I also already bought one of the meats for a meal and am keeping my eyes open for sales.  As it is, most of the meals I already have starts for will occur at the beginning of the month so I can have a few extra weeks to look for sales.
How does your menu look for this week?  Anything new or exciting?

Also check out Confessions of a Homeschooler’s April’s Monthly Meal Plan.  If this is a new concept to you, take some time to think it over.  Imagine only having to sit down once a month to menu plan, rather than 4 or 5 times.  It worked for me, perhaps it will do the same for you.

In case you didn’t know, the button below describes me to a “T”.  Sad, but true.  It doesn’t take a lot to make me happy.
