    Bangers and Mash and Spag & Meatballs - mmm I could really go for that!

    I also love the sound of that orange salad!

    It has been raining so much all month - bugs all over outside and creepy spiders crawling around.

    I am still finishing up the meals I planned for last week, so they will get added into this week's menu. Really low on funds (as I always am by mid month), so still trying to use only what I have except for the fresh veg & dairy.

    Meal #1: (tonight) Doctored Spaghetti Sauce using ground beef, bread machine Italian bread, side salad

    Meal#2: still have to make the Steak Bites from last week, with either Mashed Cauliflower or Carrots or both, also with a side salad

    Meal #3: something using up pork loin chops from my freezer

    Meal #4: leftovers (or soup & sandwich)

    Meal #5: pizza (will most likely be frozen or maybe a BBQ chicken version)

    Meal #6: breakfast for dinner or leftovers

    Meal #7: something using chicken or tuna

    Lunches: I am probably making some egg salad or a chickpea salad for my dd to take to school for lunch, possibly some Japanese riceballs too.

    Breakfasts: Going to make some waffles (using up leftover pancake mixes) and have those ready in the freezer to help with getting out the door for school. I have Bisquick, Red Velvet, and Gingerbread mixes to use up.

    This weekend, I will also probably bake some biscuits and make sausage gravy.

    Desserts: I hope to make a batch of orange cookies that I promised a while ago and never got made. I am still working on some jello fruit salad I made for myself.

    Hi,

    Sympathy to those suffering with heat...we've been through that but right now we have temps just in the 80s. We've actually been able to take some breaks from AC by sucking in cool morning air with the fan and then closing the windows and shades once it starts to warm up. Nothing too exciting around here in the menu department. Garden-wise the "big" news is that my 12' sunflowers are now all drooping over from the weight of their flowers. I've never grown them before and they are just fun to observe.

    Sat – Kenyan Ground Round Curry with veg and tortillas from Wed (will double curry)

    Sun – I think we are going to a concert at the downtown pavillion, so we will probably just buy something portable on the ped mall to eat after we stake out some seats.

    Mon – Baklava Salmon (Salmon With Honey, Butter, Walnuts, and Mustard) with market veg and grits

    Tue – leftover curry from Sat w/frozen veg and whatever leftover starches we have

    Wed – Creamy Garlic Chicken with veg from market and millet

    Thu – Pasta With Roasted Garlic and Cherry Tomatoes with white beans

    Fri – Unbelievable Chicken (grill) with potatoes (micro’d then finished on the grill) and some kind of veg

    --M

    the Kenyan ground curry sounds good. Can I ask why you gave it only 4 stars?

    Some great menus by all.

    HF, love BBQ pizza never thought I would be, but it is delicious.
    Pls send some of your rain. You couldn't tell by the radar, but poor little Sarasota has pretty much missed all the rain. It finally rained for about 30 minutes yesterday; and that was the first in about 3 weeks.

    And bangers and mash does sound good C - I think the only time I have them is for St. Patty's Day, and not sure why not more often.

    I'll have to go back and check out a few more recipes; a couple sounded really good.

    I think is has rained every single day for over a month. Some days ir is just a little, most of the time it has been torrential downpours. So sick of it.
