Feed Me Monday

This is sort of a random post, but it's pretty much all about food, thus the title. I thought about "Stuff My Face Monday", but that seemed a little much... Let's start off with a Menu Plan!

I haven't posted my menus in awhile. I was looking forward to all kinds of soups this week, but it's supposed to be in the upper 90's so I guess I'll have to wait. I'm giving you through next Tuesday, because the following Wednesday is my store day so I have to have meals until then.

Monday: Tacos! I found a new way to season them and Ben and I have a new love.
Tuesday: BLTs... I think. I'm pretty sure I have bacon...
Wednesday: BBQ for my bro's B-day - Tri tip, veggies, bread, etc.
Thursday: Cheeseburger Pasta, bread
Friday: Homemade Pizza
Saturday: Most likely leftovers
Sunday: Out
Monday: Bean Soup, bread
Tuesday: Bean Soup Day II, bread

The holiday seasons are coming up soon (Friday is October 1st!!) and that means sales. Sales on all kinds of stuff. Baking goods and ingredients, turkeys, hams, etc., etc. This year I plan on stocking up.

We've fully funded our Christmas fund with some extra money we got, so we took our monthly Christmas fund "payment" and applied it to our grocery budget. I'll be saving some of that money for stock ups when items go on sale. I'm especially looking forward to butter and baking supplies going cheap, because I can freeze them long term. I'm also planning on stockpiling a few extra turkeys and hams as well.

If you're able to, now might be a good time to set aside some extra money for those really good deals that will be coming up!

I made another loaf of beer bread last night with 2 tsp basil, a tsp garlic powder, and about 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Mmmm. It would have been delicious to dip into a pot of fresh marinara sauce, if I'd had any. But it was good all by itself as well.

Have a great Monday!

Yum!! it all sounds so good. I think stuff my face would be a good title.
Yeah, I never knew of all of the dangers chickens experience until I had chickens. :) Life is never boring.
I am so proud of you and Ben and all of the really good choices you have made.

Sounds like a good time to do a menu post. I think I'll do one, too, except my menu is all shuffled around. (It's more of a guideline than an actual menu!)

I know what you mean about the sales. I saw a turkey breast with the bone in for $3.48, and I have wept quiet tears ever since that we didn't have the extra four bucks. I'm hoping those sorts of things keep appearing. I want to just do turkey breast this year for Thanksgiving, because a whole turkey is rather daunting.

I did just a turkey breast the first year I did a Thanksgiving dinner at home and it was sooo not enough turkey for my Turkey lovin' man. And after last year's success, I think I doomed myself to doin' a whole bird every year. ;)
