Menu Plan Monday

Whew! I am glad this will be the last menu plan of September! This was my second time planning out a two week menu plan, rather than a once a week plan. Because of the extra week in September, I really had to search for ways to stretch my budget. Unfortunately, I went over by a bit, but we sold some books on amazon to make up for the difference. Next month I plan on adding a rotation of crock-pot meals, soups and stews to my menu plan to welcome in the fall.

Here's what will be cooking in my kitchen the next two weeks:

I can't wait to see your crock pot recipes! Fall is my favorite time of the year to cook, all the foods are so comforting. Oh, and I have your mac & cheese on the menu for next week! I can't wait!

Great idea ~ selling books on Amazon. I'll have to look into that.
We're so tired of eating chicken so I was looking forward to MPM today. There's lots of inspiration from the participants.
I'm also looking for ways to save since my husband is underemployed and I'm unemployed.
