Menu Plan

Menu Plan: November 1-7

Another busy week here with school and church activities. I planned out some yummy frugal meals that include minimal processed items. The processed things will be tortillas, pasta and peanut butter. And of course our weekly meal of Aldi’s Take & Bake pizzas! 🙂 I found a lot of great frugal whole food recipes online, so I will be trying out several this week. Breakfasts are pretty simple, sticking mostly to eggs and oatmeal with one day of homemade cinnamon rolls tossed in! And since the weather is forecasted to be much warmer than the usual November weather, I haven’t moved to doing many soups yet. I will be using the crockpot several times, though, which is always enjoyable. Ha!
