    Monday January 26th :

    • Dinner: Bacon Spinach Veggie Quiche (I'm following a low carb meal plan right now so we'll be using ramekins to make individual serving sizes. For the kids, they'll have the pie crust base, for the adults who have been working out, the crust will be omitted!)

    Tuesday January 27th:

    Sunday February 1st: SUPERBOWL SUNDAY, GO PATRIOTS!!!

    Various Snacks & Desserts:

    Drinks Available:
    * Iced Tea (Unsweetened or Sweet Tea)
    * Coffee
    * Hot Chocolate/Cocoa

    Less Likely to be used, but still available:
    * Copycat Gatorade
    * CopyCat Arizona Green Tea
    * Lemonade
    * Iced Coffee Drinks
    * Almond Milk


    FYI: The cranberries mentioned in this weeks menu plan were purchased on sale in December at aldi for .25 per bag. They were on sale and although I was fairly well "cranberried" out, I tossed the bags into the freezer for later use. Unfortunately, I didn't take the time to vacuum seal them, which is why I'm scrambling now to use them in a few recipes.

    Although we're watching our sugar and carb intake, having just a touch of something sweet with dinner makes it easier to stick with our resolutions.

    The jalapenos mentioned in this weeks menu were grown in our garden last year and frozen until needed.

    Brief Recap of January 2015

      Hi, I am new to your site and finding it very informative. I however really liked the first week of the year where things were in a list form and prices beside it. I am sure that the prices are not as great in Nevada....but it is helpful to see.

      Also, I am only seeing menus until May....Am I missing something?
