Menu Planning

My first attempt last week at creating a thorough menu plan worked out really well.

So, I've done it again and am set to go grocery shopping this morning. And again, I shall participate in Laura's Menu Plan Monday at the end of the week. Oh well!

Also, today is a big day of celebration when it comes to menu planning. We found a chest freezer on craigslist that we like for $75. Yahoo! Hubs is on his way to get it now. I'll finally be able to really make meals in advance. This will help so SO much! Yay!

As part of Celebrating a Year of Abundance and because I am going to have to move soon, I am trying to buy as little food as possible and eat out of my freezer and my cupboards. It's encouraging me to be that wee bit more adventurous - that night, chilli con carne with chocolate stirred in just at the very end! (Tonight, I had the leftovers - chilli is always better the next day)
