What the heck happened to the prices of meat and butter, anyway? Landsakes, it’s terrifying out there! Okay, so it’s not THAT bad, but, still, butter is easily twice what it was this time last year and meat prices around here are enough to make me cringe. I could mope around about that. Or I could increase the budget significantly. Or I could leave the budget, but bust it every month. Or I could just choose to eat lower quality food.
Or, I can just put my chin up and resolve to make those ingredients stretch further in our meals. I’m going with that plan.
B–Cereal, Apples, Milk ( before 7:30AM Mass)
Brunch– Cinnamon Roll Bread, Turkey & Cheese Roll-Ups, Bananas
D–Sunday Supper at Bama & Papa’s
B–PB Toast w/ Apples, Milk
D–Turkey & Rice Burritos
B–Egg Wraps, Grapefruit
D--Peanut Noodles w/ Chicken, Broccoli, & Carrots
B–Berry Muffins, Apples, Milk
B–Berry Muffins, Eggs, Milk
D–Chicken Parm Soup, Italian Cheese Bread
B–Cereal, Apples, Milk
B–Scr. Eggs w/ Broccoli & Cheese, Baked Donuts
And that should do it! Meat is still making an appearance on our menu– it’s just getting a little help from pasta, rice, and beans.
