Bi Weekly Menu

I am a pretty deliberate shopper, so every pay day I go through the house, inventory the major food items and plan the menu accordingly. It is then off to the local discount grocer to see what I can get before I have to give in and go to the "real grocery store" with coupons. Here is the menu for the next 2 weeks:

April 12th: Steaks, mashed potatoes, freezer corn (steaks from my sister in law ***free)

April 13th : Home made pizza, veggie tray and dip

April 14th: Grilled Pineapple Orange Chicken, Vegetarian baked beans and salad

April 15th: Tuna Melts, Spinach and Artichoke dip and Fries for the guys

April 16th: Lasagna (make a double batch and put one in the freezer)

April 17th: Hot Dogs, kraut, macaroni salad and chips

April 18th: Leftover Night

April 19th: Shredded Chicken Zucchini Stew over rice (all from the freezer)

April 20th: Perogies, Grilled Asparagus and Onions

April 21st: Slow Cooker Beef Roast with Balsalmic Onions, Baked potatoes and a Veggie

April 22nd: Chicken Fajitas, Chips and Salsa

April 23rd: Chicken BBQ dinner from my son's school

April 24th: Grilled chicken salad and 30 minute buns

April 25th: BBQ sandwiches, chips, pickles and cheese

Dessert for the next 2 weeks: apple enchiladas, chocolate cake with pb icinig, vanilla pudding, ice cream and cornflake brownies (all of which I already have the supplies for!)

Well there you have it, that is what we will be eating! Have any good recipes to share? Most of mine come from the wonderful posts at

Big News!

Well I guess it isn't big news to everyone, but for a mom who has waited 19 months to hear it, hearing Micah say Mamma today was such a blessing. His little voice is almost edible to me, I knwo that sounds strange, but hearing that one word was so sweet. He said it a few times today and meant it, it was not random baby ramblings, but a sure direct statement from him to me, and I love it. This comes the day after he qualified for speech help through Early Intervention, so it made it even sweeter. Thank you Lord!
