Menu Plan: Monday Prep to Save the Week


More activities join the pack this week! Church school for two kids, I’m teaching a class (to prepare for First Holy Eucharist– SO excited about that!), chorus, plus a curriculum night, and a new bible study. It is a busy, busy season, but it’s fun. We’ve got another couple weeks before cello and orchestra join the mix, so I’m appreciating the gradual “ease-in.”


I did a ton of prep on Monday morning for this week’s menu plan and I’m trying not to shop very much. I snagged a gallon of milk, a pound of butter, coffee, and some eggs (total: $11.50) on the way home from last night’s curriculum night and I’m really hoping to make that work, at least until the end of the week.


Here’s the plan!!

    So what are “French-y” drumsticks? My friend has been doing drumstick meals too. I’m thinking this could be a cost cutter.

    • I fear this “recipe” might be a disappointment, Heather. I basically put a package of drumsticks in the slow cooker and cover them with some French dressing, onion flakes, and tarragon. That’s it. They turn out juicy, tender, and a little sweet and herbal. The skin itself is MUSH, so if you have skin-eaters, it’s not a good method. But, for everyone else, it’s easy and effective!
