|Homemade turkey soup with broth from the turkey carcass|
Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend! I'm a bit late this week on my menu plans.
Our grocery bill for November is higher than I had hoped - I spent a total of $494.94. In defense of my spending, some of that food is yet to be eaten: another lovely turkey in the freezer, string cheese, Wasa crackers, protein powder for my breakfast smoothies... My husband survived November without spending any money on lunches! The boys sometimes had homemade lunches to take to school, but more often had hot lunch. We kept to my goal of $40 on school lunches.
Here is the menu plan for the week:
Monday: Sunday leftovers (mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet potatoes, stuffing, green beans, salad, pumpkin pie)
Tuesday: homemade turkey and vegetable soup with broth from the turkey carcass, cornbread muffins
Wednesday: salami sandwiches on baguette, blackberries, chips, cranberry chocolate oatmeal cookies
Thursday: beef fajitas
Friday: homemade pizza
Saturday: Mom's minestrone soup
We're keeping it pretty simple this week. What are you eating at your house?
