Menu Monday

Ok so we are in serious countdown til the move. Less than 3 weeks and soo much still to finalize and pack. I have come to the realization that you cannot in fact pack a three level home, keep it in "show condition", and avoid moving boxes constantly. All while the garage is off limits because it holds all the goodies for the yard sale. Yeah not possible.

Anyways I have been thinking about my off hand comment about laying out a month of meals and how ridiculous that would be for me to follow.
I figured though that I could make a 2 week menu based on the food prices I happen upon on paydays. This may help me to reduce my trips to the store to twice a month if I can plan it right. So here's the list...

Buckwheat Pancakes
Blueberry Muffins (trying a gluten free mix cross you fingers)
Breakfast Rissoto (breakfast in the crock pot? Why yes I think I will!)
Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole
Yogurt and Fruit
Sorghum Muffin Recipe
Pumpkin Scones
Granola and Almond Milk (our compromise on cereal)

Leftovers, Salad

Split Pea Soup
Ham and Veggies
Bean and Kale Scramble
Eggs in a Nest
Crock Pot White Chili
Pesto Spaghetti Squash Lasagna
Sweet Potato Chili
Moroccan Lentil Soup
Honey Lentils
Broccoli Casserole
Chickpea Balls and Marinara over rice (or quinoa)
Asparagus Quiche

As you can see I fully intend to give my crock pot a workout over the next few weeks. I really see this as my only method of survival. I haven't been able to make up extra meals like I would have liked to due to budget constraints and time constraints. Fortunately I have a FAB church family and one lady there has offered to cook us a meal for our move in night so that's one less thing on my list of "to plan for's".
And although I was really scared and overwhelmed at first I *think* I may have planned the next 2 weeks gluten free! I sure hope I feel some differences. Don't forget to head on over to Org Junkie to see what's cooking elsewhere!

We are moving in three weeks too. My meal planning consists of trying to use up all the food we have stocked in the house and I am running out of inspiration! lol

I'm tellin ya the crock pot is where its at! Takes so much off my plate to know I can throw something in at lunchtime and by dinner its done! Also if you're having a hard time figuring out what to do with an ingredient head over to and click the ingredients tab. You can plug in what you have and it will suggest meals to make with it. Easy peasy!
