      GB101,

      When I clicked on Holiday cranberry butter it brought up Copycat Dunkin Donuts Honey Glazed instead. Thought you needed to know.

      Are you going to be doing this again next year? If not, will you be keeping this open? I found this site around July and refer to it quite often for menu and recipe ideas. I love all the work you've done!! Thank you!

      I guess I'm a little confused on these. or am I behind on reading them? this is week #52. When would I shop for the items? I'm trying to learn to use your budget and go with your ideas, but I don't have a lot on hand.

      Can you explain on how I would use your menu ideas. I love them, I'm just confused on when I would them. Thanks Ruth aka lil momma.

      Your best bet is to go back to the First few weeks of our our $50 weekly menus. The reason why week #52 is based mostly off the pantry is that throughout the year we've purchased items and filled the freezers and pantry to the point where we Have to stop grocery shopping for awhile.

      Each week it shows what we purchased, along with what was consumed (via the menus).

      Our menu plan is just that, Our Plan for Our family. What you plan for your family is going to be dependent on what you have on hand in your pantry, what sales are available at your local grocery store and what you prefer to eat. We like alot of recipes with a Mexican flare to them, many people don't. Here's a link that explains more:

      Thank you
