Weekly Menu Plan–January 27-February 2nd

by GettingFreedom on January 28, 2013

It’s been awhile since I’ve had a written menu plan.  Seems as if I’ve gotten myself into the habit of creating one mentally and calling it good.  While it’s been somewhat effective, I think that a written menu plan had more benefit–especially on those crazy busy days where my brain just doesn’t want to function.  Tell me I’m not alone here!

Here’s to hoping that I’m able to stick with posting and writing my menu plans again!

  • Ham Steaks and Eggs

Weekly Menu Plan {Oct. 7th-Oct 13th}

by GettingFreedom on October 8, 2012

This month is proving to be a really emotional and hard month.  I really should have expected it heading in, but as usual I tried to forget the reality.

We’re auctioning off my parents’ estate on the 20th.  Everything my dad ever worked for and built will be sold to the highest bidder.  It’ll all go back to the bank.  I’m hoping to be able to squeak out a post further explaining everything and to give my hard won advice.  But we’ll see how my emotions go.

Here’s our menu plan for this week.  Fall is here with it’s cooler temps and I’m loving it!

  • Breakfast Burritos
  • Oatmeal
  • Biscuits and Gravy
