Wow, I can’t believe it’s November already. I know I say that every month, but man..the days sometimes drag, but the weeks and months fly. It’s crazy!
I have to admit, I’m already getting pretty darn excited for the holidays. My kids both have winter birthdays, so I’ve been doing birthday shopping as well as Christmas planning. I usually start doing holiday shopping in July-August, so that I can spend a little each month instead of one big expensive month. It also gives me plenty of time to look for deals.
Between working full-time, raising a special needs child, being the local Cub Scout leader, gymnastics, baseball, and swimming lessons for my 2 kiddos, and holiday shopping, I’ve been busy. Grocery-wise, I have noticed that I’m letting a lot of foods go to waste. The last 2 weeks I haven’t been great about using up all the produce I’ve purchased before it goes bad, and my goal this week is to change that. I’ll have to dedicate time and thought into it, but it’s definitely worth it. Here’s hoping I can do better!
The menu plan for this week:
Monday: Potato Fry with chicken
Tuesday: Breakfast for dinner (fruit smoothies, gf pancakes, hashbrowns)
Wednesday: Hubby is cooking
Thursday: Crockpot Taco Soup
Friday: Leftover night
Saturday: Out to eat
Sunday: Crockpot Pork Ribs, potatoes and carrots
