This Week's Menu




  Sooo…  I’m back.. from a rough few days..  that flu bug was something else!  Had me down for the count for a couple of days and honestly I can’t remember the last time I felt so sick.  But I’m now on the other side of it and grateful to be feeling like my old self again and to get back to the business of my home.  So much falls apart when a mom gets sick.  First and foremost my cupboards are looking a bit bare, so top on my to-do list for today is grocery shopping.  I have some new meals on my menu this week and a couple freezer cooking ideas to share with you over the next few days among other plans.  For now I will leave you with my menu for the week….

Tuesday
Meatballs & gravy over mashed potatoes, salad

Thursday
BBQ beef (crockpot freezer meal) over noodles, salad

  1. So glad to know you are feeling better. I've heard the flu is quite aggressive this year in the US.

    Do you have a dollar amount you try to stick to for your family food budget? Is so would you mind sharing it to give me a idea what this menu might cost for a family ? Thx, Stef

    1. Hi Stef.. Well.. I use to spend about $600 a month for food, but the cost of food has gone up so much it is scary! I'm spending about $800/850 now a month for 7 of us.. I feed 2 boys, ages 14 and 18 (that KNOW HOW to EAT!! LOL), 3 daughters ages 20,21, and 16, and Tobin and me.. We pretty much never eat out (it's a very rare occasion when we do) and we don't eat fast food.. I pack Tobin's lunch every day for work so he does not eat out either..
