I’m finally getting back into the grove of making a menu plan. I’ve just been going with the flow and cooking out of the freezer but there are some things I want to use up and I need to make sure I have enough leftovers for lunches for Jeff.
I did a ton of baking today. I made chocolate chip cookie bars and some sandwich bread. I have an extra loaf’s worth of dough so I can make another loaf later in the week if we need it. It’s in the freezer.
I got a great deal on flour this week. A while back I had called Betty Crocker to complain about the new Suddenly Salad recipe. I got a coupon for up to $6 off any Betty Crocker product so I took that coupon to BJ’s. They sell a two pack of 10lb bags of flour for $8.49. Deduct my coupon and I just got 20lbs of flour for 2.49. I was just thrilled. I see lots of baking in our future.
I’m not really sure if this is the order things are going to stay in for the week, but this is the plan for now. Remember with menu planning, you don’t have to eat things on the nights you plan to make them unless you are planning for leftovers for lunches.
