Weekly Menu ~ November 17, 2008


Hmmm.  I ignored part of last week’s menu—especially the baking portions.  We had an enormously busy week (according to our typically quiet standards):  gymnastics on Monday, my all-day library training on Tuesday, tae-kwon-do also on Tuesday, book club on Thursday, science fair on Friday, DH’s hunting on the weekend, etc.  So much for the myth of the unsocialized homeschooler!

Anyway, some of last week’s menu has been carried over to this week.  Please forgive the boring-ness.  And this week will be overtaken by cooking at least 50 meals ahead using fresh venison.  Our freezer should be fully stocked by the end of the week.
