I've been *so* busy the last few days that I wasn't even planning to do MPM this week, and then I find out the my husband is checking my blog from work to see what we're having for dinner.
So I suppose I have an obligation.
What I'm working with this week:
Huge bags of organice root vegetables. Lettuce bought on sale a couple of days ago.
On to the menu. Prices are rounded to the nearest 25¢. The total price of food is counted on the day that it is cooked. Leftovers are counted as $0. On any day that no vegetable is mentioned there is a raw vegetable platter served and $2 is added to the menu cost for that day for the cost of the vegetables with dressing. There are always homemade rolls. They cost me less than 35¢ to make and last for several days.
Monday - Crockpot garlic chicken legs, brown rice, vegetable platter. $8.50
Tuesday - Huge salads with leftover chicken. $1.50
Wednesday - No dinner at church this week. It's Ash Wednesday Service. We'll have sandwiches when we get home on homemade whole wheat bread. $6.50
Thursday - Grilled sausages with turnip greens and corn/onion cornbread. $4.25
Friday - White bean/ham soup with leftover cornbread. Vegetable platter. $6.50
Total for the work week - $27.25 (Woo-hoo! Good week!)
