Menu Plan Monday November 1. 2010: And Where BAAACK!

Well, most of the boxes are unpacked and I still have hair left, so things are going well around here. We are getting settled into our new home in Georgia and have been enjoying the small town feel this place seems to have. The husband and I have accomplished a lot over the last week (more so him than I, but hey, I helped). He installed a garbage disposal and a microwave range, which makes my life so much easier in the kitchen. I helped give the hedges and bushes a hair cut - boy did they need it. I had no idea it was so much work to trim hedges. My arms were shaking when I was done. I have painted a hallway (I know, is that all?), and I am about to start on the trim. It is currently a cream color and I cannot stand it. I have never seen trim that was not white before. I have not even made an effort to remove the 5 rooms of wallpaper yet. I am so dreading that. I cannot believe this stuff was ever popular in the 90's. Clearly they loved large flowers.

So, please forgive my absence lately. I have been extremely busy with the kids missing the bus, and trying to hunt down groceries without paying full price *gasp*. My stockpile is already forming in my freezer and pantry, so I am finally feeling better about that. Our menu has consisted of a lot of sandwiches over the last 3 weeks. My husband was gone for 2 of them, and the kids seemed to like the sandwiches; it was easy, so we ate them often. To be honest, they were pretty delicious. The kids favorite was sourdough bread, salami (from the dollar store), swiss, lettuce and tomato. DELISH! This week my goal is to get back on a menu plan, so we can all start eating real food again.

This week I have managed to throw a few things together, but it is so much easier when I have a menu plan to refer to. If your looking for more menu plans and ideas, check out orgjunkie.com.
