Menu Monday

The house is fairly quiet once again, and I am even managing to get on to the blog. Yippee!!!

As usual my menus are subject to switching around, which will more than likely happen a great deal the next week or so. I find it very hard to either cook enough or I cook too much when Kurt and Kris are home. When both are home...whoa, do I go to town.

Monday

Leftover appetizers (so many of them from the family get together). They need gone from my freezer, so we will be having a mixture of sausage rolls, spring rolls, samosas, mozzarella sticks, cheese and crackers, and whatever else needs out of there.

Tuesday

My birthday, so hopefully ordering in or heading out for dinner.

Wednesday

Leftover Stew and perhaps some dumplings.

Thursday

Either a clean out the fridge night or leftover turkey soup.

Friday

Salmon cakes, rice and peas and carrots.

Saturday

Porkchops, leftover rice, and corn.

Sunday

Roast Ham, mashed potatoes, and green beans.

I will not be shopping for food this week (well perhaps some milk and cream) so hopefully will be well under budget for this month. Trying to see where we can cut and where we need to add to the budget. Could be fun next year as fixed expenses are rising but what we bring in is staying the same. This could take some creative reworking of the budget.

Everybody have a wonderful day.

God bless.
