    Nice Menu C - and congrats on getting everything completed last week. I'm still doing a lot of pantry cleaning too. I spent $100 yesterday restocking. I still have some odd items I don't use often, but I had to restock some basics, evoo, balsamic, honey, coffee, some pasta, etc. It adds up quick. But I have been doing lots of cleaning out the freezer and pantry rather than buying a lot. And continuing to make soup every week, which really helps out during the week. And then I can freeze some for nights when I don't have time, or just want something quick. I love having a few containers in the freezer.

    Hi, I did well with making things last week, too. I need to get out to the store immediately because they are predicting snow so it may become a mob scene! Sadly, we have used the last of the venison a hunter friend gave us. It was definitely the best venison we've ever had -- I don't know if it was a particulary good animal who only ate the finest landscaping, or skilfully taken, or well prepared, or what, but it was excellent. But there are a few other things in the freezer that need to be used. I guess it's the chilly weather we're expecting, but this week has a lot of warming meals.

    Sat – Pumpkin Posole (although I think I will not use the pumpkin and use a mole sauce instead) with tortillas

    Sun – Black-Eyed Peas With Mustard Greens and Rice - never too late for new year's!

    Mon – Saag Chicken over millet

    Tue – Grilled Salmon With Lime Butter Sauce (might just broil) with broccoli or other veg and grits

    Wed – leftovers from Sat

    Thu – Wild Mushroom Stroganoff, but I will actually add some beef from the freezer. Over egg noodles.

    Fri – leftover noodles with clams or anything else to be used up

    The cats will be having chow - maybe with salad: I dropped a piece of lettuce while making salad yesterday and Marcel (cat) ate it right up! I guess it's not that different from when they eat grass outside. icon_smile.gif

    My cats, 2 or the 3 love cooked spinach. Maybe it reminds them of when they puke up too much grass that they ate rotfl.gif But they seriously do like it. Strange critters!!

    MMMM Hawaiian turkey burger....love it!
    When making a turkey burger, do you season them more than you would a beef burger? Do you add more moisture?

    I've decided to join in on the freezer cleaning this week! It definitely needs to be done. We have a ton of food in the freezer and pantry, and the checkbook could use a rest. So, here's our menu this week. . .

    Sunday: Tacos, refried beans, homecanned pineapple

    Monday: Parmesan chicken, mashed potatoes, frozen sweet corn from the summer

    Tuesday: BBQ pork sandwiches,

    Wednesday: leftover night!

    Thursday: I think we'll give Steak Sandwiches - Pioneer Woman a try. Not sure how it will be received with the boys, but we'll try to sell it!

    Friday and Saturday: It'll just be me and our 2 youngest boys, so easy dinners they enjoy. Maybe homemade pizzas, maybe breakfast, maybe a picnic dinner in the livingroom - it'll be fun!

    Have a great week everyone! icon_cool.gif
