Menu Planning Logo

Ok…I guess I’ll TRY to get back into real menu planning this week! I was inspired by Crystal over at Money Saving Mom as she did a Eating from the Pantry challenge. Honestly, last week we would have starved if I had tried that, but I did some frugal shopping this week and after Wednesday I don’t plan on doing any kind of shopping for 2 weeks (this will be the first week this spring that I can make it to the farmers market for some fresh fruit & veggies). Ok…that’s a stretch…going without Milk isn’t an option here, so there will be at least one trip to pick up milk. Other than that, I plan on eating what we have on hand and saving the grocery budget. At least…this is my plan 😉
