"Yes, we did produce a near-perfect republic. But will they keep it? Or will they, in the enjoyment of plenty, lose the memory of freedom? Material abundance without character is the path of destruction"-Thomas Jefferson

Menu Plan Monday (on Sunday!)

For more great menu plans, check out orgjunkie.com!

This week is going to be all about eating from the pantry and freezer. I don't have a vehicle this week (as our second car is being repaired..AGAIN! Um, yes, time to get a new one I think!!!) so no grocery trips for us! Wish us luck using what we have!

Monday: (Prepare a meal for friend that just had a baby: Chicken pot pie and oatmeal cookies) for us: LEFTOVERS!
Tuesday: Butternut squash soup and french bread (homemade!)
Wednesday: Mini BBQ meatloaves (prepare enough extra for the freezer!), mashed potatoes and vegetable NOTE: I don't use stuffing in my recipe..my husband detests it, so instead I use oatmeal. Much more nutritious!
Thursday: Leftovers
Friday: Homemade pizza
Saturday: Sandwiches or leftovers
Sunday: Roast with potatoes, carrots, onions and rolls

Breakfasts: Cereal, cream of wheat or bacon and eggs
Lunches: Leftovers--from this week's dinners or from the freezer, chicken salad, fruit and vegetables
Snacks: Fruit or frozen fruit cocktail loaf, muffins, goldfish

Frozen Fruit Cocktail Loaf:
8 oz of cream cheese
1 16oz can of fruit cocktail

Beat cream cheese til smooth. Drain fruit and mix into cream cheese. Pour into pan. Freeze. Use a warm knife to cut off portions for serving!
