Menu Plan, August 6-12

I am really looking forward to this week. For the first time in quite a while, it looks like (for now, at least), I only have one day I'll need to go into town for something. I'm hoping this will make for a productive week, after a few weeks of just feeling super busy. I want to get back into our normal routine and I have a huge mountain of laundry calling my name. I'm hoping the kids and I will be able to tackle that this afternoon.

I also wanted to mention a great deal to y'all. Through midnight tonight, Tropical Traditions is offering free shipping with the code 682212. This is a great opportunity to try out some of their excellent products without paying shipping costs. Their Organic Palm Oil Shortening (which I love) is on sale for $23.59 for a gallon, and their 2.2lb bag of Coconut Flour (which I have fallen in love with--especially now that Ben is gluten-free) is on sale for $9.99.

But, anyway, here is our menu for this week. I'm hoping to continue freezing some things here and there as well--it adds so little prep. time, and I think it will end up saving me a lot of time (and stress!) on busy days.

Breakfast~Oatmeal pancakes (served with butter and real syrup), fruit
Dinner~Simple Beef Gravy over Millet Biscuits, salad, fruit

Dinner~BBQ Meatballs (from the freezer), mashed potatoes, salad

Breakfast~Hashbrowns, scrambled eggs
Dinner~Crockpot stroganoff over gluten-free pasta, glazed carrots, salad

Breakfast~Baked Oatmeal
Dinner~Creamy Cauliflower Soup (with turkey bacon), coconut flour cheddar biscuits, salad

Breakfast~Leftover Baked Oatmeal
Dinner~Homemade pizza, salad

Breakfast~Breakfast casserole, Sweet Brown Oatmeal Bread (from the freezer), Fruit
Dinner~ Crockpot BBQ Beef Short Ribs, salad, scalloped potatoes

Breakfast~Leftovers from Saturday morning
Dinner~Family dinner at the farm
