Menu Plan Monday: December 31, 2012   1 comment

Linking up with Menu Plan Monday at I’m an Organizing Junkie to keep me honest. πŸ™‚


(Credit where credit is due…Menu plan page found at

Since we are still on Christmas break this menu will be far more elaborate than anything else I will do…ever again. πŸ˜‰

I found that writing in our calendar of events on my planner really helped. For example, I planned to make pizza with the kids on Friday afternoon, then I realized we would only be home in shifts so that won’t work. We’ll make it on Thursday instead.

I’m trying out my new cookbookΒ (which I got for less than 1/2 price in store–it’s apparently not a breach of etiquette to mention that sort of thing on a homesteading blog :D) while I have the opportunity. Once school starts back I’ll pretty much have only time for the Crockpot.

Monday: Chicken & Rice.

Tuesday: Happy New Year! Will be making donuts and visiting the USS Iowa. Dinner: Soup & Sandwiches

Wednesday: Pesto Pork Roast

Thursday: Pizza using Bob’s Red Mill recipe, though not their flour–I’ll use their xanthan gum, though, so it’s OK, right? πŸ˜‰

Friday: Breakfast: Ham & Eggs. Dinner: Left overs & odd n ends. πŸ™‚

Saturday: Herbed Roast Beef

Sunday: Leftovers
