Another week, another menu. I’m doing my best to eat out of the pantry this month, as I’m trying to take advantage of the case lot sales and food storage deals available during the month of September. The menu this week will be based on that.
Freezer waffles (I’m SO glad I made a big batch of these!)
Steel Cut Oatmeal with Apples
Peanut butter and grape jam sandwiches
Carrots, Apple slices, Broccoli, Grapes, Apples
Pretzels, Granola Bars, or Crackers
Lettuce Salad with Beans, Fish, or Chicken
Monday – Tacos night (Turkey taco meat, lettuce, garden salsa, homemade refried beans, etc)
Tuesday – Paleo Fish Fingers, Lettuce Salad
Wednesday – Chicken and Rice Soup
Thursday – Leftover night
Friday – Quinoa and Bell Pepper Salad, Steak
Saturday – Neighborhood Party – we’ll eat whatever is there.
Sunday – To be Determined
And now, time to see how I did on my goals for last week:
- Can and preserve grape juice (we harvested 47 lbs of grapes last night) – DONE!
- Can and preserve grape jelly – DONE!
- Can and preserve peaches (my mom harvested and shared 50 lbs of peaches) – DONE!
- Can and preserve more salsa – DONE!
- Finish up The Identical Giveaway – DONE!
- Plan and carry out Activity Days – DONE!
I can’t believe it; I got EVERYTHING on the list done! My husband also canned and preserved 6 pints of spaghetti sauce. Makes me feel motivated to try and accomplish some more awesome stuff this week:
Can and preserve peach syrup (yep, my mom’s last and final tree’s peaches were given to me over the weekend!)
Create a menu plan for the rest of September, based on what we have in the pantry.
Take Buddy Boy in for some dental work.
Go into work early 4x this week (making up for the time I’ll be gone at the dentist)
Declutter and clean out bedroom dressers.
Have a great week!
