Menu Plan Monday ~ April 16th

I’m so excited that we’re starting to get a bunch of tomatoes on our plants and I’m hoping that we have a couple of big ones ready for our tacos tomorrow night, unfortunately that probably means I need to stop picking and eating them real fast as soon as they start to ripen.  We’re still working on clearing out our freezer so it’s getting a little harder to come up with creative meal plans for the week, but I have to admit that it’s been wonderful for the budget!  Pretty soon there will only be chicken and blueberries left in the freezer so I figure I’ll worry about re-stocking when we get to that point 😉

Menu Plan Monday ~ April 2nd

Tonight I have to go to a meeting in town so I've planned something easy for hubby to feed the kids.  We've been working on eating only what we have in the freezer and pantry for the past few months and now the selection is getting pretty limited, but I'm thrilled to have been able to plan out the menu for the whole month based on what we have on hand.  I don't think we're going to be able to do it again next month, but then I'm really surprised that we've made it this long since we started with the pantry challenge in January!

Menu Plan Monday ~ March 26th

This week is spring break for the kids and we’re planning a bunch of gardening projects, activities and a day trip to visit the USS Alabama at Battleship Memorial Park so I’ve lined up some easy meals for the week from items that we already have available in the freezer.  I’m looking forward to hanging out with the kids and getting to sleep in a little this week, but I’m also pretty sure I’ll be ready for school again by the end of the week 😉

Menu Plan Monday ~ March 19th

I'm super excited about getting our garden started with all this beautiful weather we've been having!  The kids helped us plant several different types of tomato seeds (Early Girl, Better Boy, Cherry and Beefsteak) and they're just thrilled that they're coming up now.  I'm going to have to sneak in there quick and get them pruned when the kids aren't looking just to avoid any drama 😉  I know this looks like a lot of plants but they won't all make it and the kids can eat their weight in tomatoes, plus we love having extra to give away.  How have you been enjoying this early spring weather?

Menu Plan Monday ~ March 12th

Only two of the tomato seeds that we planted with the kids a couple weeks ago have come up – we’re not sure if maybe they got planted too deep or if there was some issue with the soil we used from the farm next door.  We love fresh tomatoes so we’ve planted some more seeds this weekend hoping we’ll have better luck.  Usually we buy seedlings from the store but we were hoping that starting our own seeds would give us more plants this year and help save a few bucks at the same time.  I’ll let you know how this batch turns out!

Menu Plan Monday ~ March 4th

We’re participating in the Mom2Mom consignment sale and this is going to be a very busy week so I’m thrilled to have a whole bunch of homemade meals in the freezer ready to go!  We’ve been working on eating from our own freezer and stockpile since January and we still have so much stuff left in the freezer that we’re hoping to make it through April without having to make any more large meat purchases.  Of course the menu might get pretty boring before the end of April, but we’re super excited to be keeping our budget down by “shopping” our own freezer and pantry!

Menu Plan Monday ~ February 27th

I just got home last night from the Blissdom conference and I’m still exhausted so I’m thrilled to have been able to plan out the menu for the whole month in advance based on our freezer inventory.  What a relief to have home cooked meals ready to go in the freezer and not have to worry about figuring out “what’s for supper?”  This may be a record – February is almost over and I’m still following through on my “get more organized” resolution!

I’ll be heading out on Thursday morning for the Blissdom Conference in Nashville and won’t return until Sunday evening so I’ve planned some super easy meals for hubby to feed the kids while I’m gone.  I’m hoping that the house is still intact and no one is starving to death by the time I get home!

Menu Plan Monday ~ February 13th

According to an email that I got from Sprout Robot, it’s time to start planting tomato seeds this week in my area so I’m on a mission today to go buy some.  Although you can upgrade your account for a fee, I use the free service and really dig it.  You just put in your zip code so the Sprout Robot can figure out what grows in your area, then you check boxes of things you want to plant and they email you when it’s time with directions.  I’m using the last of our frozen green beans from last year’s garden for this One Skillet Chicken Dinner and I’m excited about getting a tiny little start on a new garden this week.
