Starting off the new year with another menu plan

Happy New Year!

Yesterday I spent about two hours getting my menu plan together. I had food on hand from the past two months that I'd picked up and hadn't used and I had hoped to not have to buy any groceries due to some financial shortages this month, but I will have to buy 20 lb. potatoes and just a few other things, some carrots and lettuce, probably another 50 lb. bag of flour, more milk, and eggs. It should cost around $50 - $60 for all those. I spent 15 minutes taking inventory of my freezers, pantry, and fridge, then I went to and entered the items. It came up with over 70 recipes that I had all the ingredients for! I picked many of those, added a few faves that I know I have the things for, and printed off the new recipes. Not hard at all!

Breakfasts: eggs, quiche, oatmeal, waffles, pancakes, fruit smoothies made with frozen fruit and homemade yogurt.

Lunches: sandwiches, leftovers, homemade pasta with garlic & cheese, fruit

I don't have the days planned out yet, but here are my 31 dinner meals!

  • Hawaiian chicken over rice, green beans (had this 1/1)
  • Spaghetti, homemade garlic bread, vegetable salad
  • roast chicken, winter squash, corn
