Menu Plan Week of 5/10-5/16

by GettingFreedom on May 11, 2009

I hope that everyone had a great Mother’s Day! I know I did. Unfortunately we were unable to visit with my mother–but we will probably this weekend. We went to a state park not too far from here and fed the ducks/geese and just spent time together–which is really all I asked for for Mother’s Day.

We hit a major hitch with our planned meal for Friday. I no more than than placed the beans in the crockpot to make refried beans, and the seasoned hamburger meat into the little crockpot to mesh the flavors when a storm rolled through, knocking out our electricity. Little did we know at the time the full extent of said storm–but we ended up without power for almost exactly 24 hours! Thankfully we were completely unharmed and lost nothing more than an outside swing and roughly 4 big trees. There were confirmed tornadoes all around us that destroyed multiple homes, so we are incredibly blessed.

Onto this week’s menu:



  • Sunday: Grilled Pork Steaks. ($4) Pasta Salad. ($2.40)($6.40) (8 servings=.80/ea) Ice Cream from DQ. :)
