Bringing the best of the web to you.

Menu Plan Monday 3/19/12

This week I’m continuing to prepare meals using items from the freezer and pantry. I’ve invested a lot of money into my stockpile of food, and it’s time to cash it out to put some money now into savings for a new home.

I have prepped the cut veggies for the week, enough for lunches and snacks, plus prepped the ones for side dishes and fajitas. I can use the cut veggies as I go through the week, dicing carrot sticks and celery for the salads as I need them. Cabbage was super cheap this week thanks to the St. Patty’s day sales, so I will be peppering it though the meal plan, in salads and in the pork recipe that I’m planning on trying this week.

You may notice the weekly menu plan is in a new format. I’m trying to streamline the process by making a printable one for my fridge, and a web friendly one for this site. I have also planned in the prep work that I will need to do throughout the week. This area will be used to assure that I can assemble my meals as quickly as possible. The days are getting longer, and I want to be able to spend as much time as possible out in the sunshine with my family. The spring has been beautiful so far, enjoy it!
