Menu Plan: November 9

I hope y'all had a blessed weekend. We had a relaxing weekend and got some much needed work done around the house. This week appears to be a relatively calm week (Scary... When it starts to look like that something always happens!).

A side note: I went to our local Natural food store this week and requested information on kefir grains and vegetable rennet... I was blown away. I thought a lot of women were becoming informed and interested in nutrition and whole foods, but apparently around where I live, that is NOT the case. I quote the lady at the store "Honey, you're the only one that comes in here looking for all this stuff. I think you might be the only one into all this health nonsense." Oh my is all I could think. Therefore I am making it a mission of mine to share more of my whole foods experience, hoping those around my home read my blog and will want to join me.

Also, I am preceeding with No Spend November. There will not be as many posts this week due to the fact that last week exhausted me. If you are looking for a No Spend Post everyday this week, it won't be there. However, I will be discussing in a few posts this week about how I save money decorating my home.

Here's our menu plan for the week:

Applesauce bread, oatmeal
Potato Soup, Sandwiches (Potato soup recipe later this week)
Chili Bar, Hotdogs (for Small group)

Sweet potato Muffins, grapes
Sandwiches, Mac and Cheese
Cubed Steak, mashed potatoes, peas

Banana Bread, grapes
leftover Chili
Garlic Chicken Pasta


Johnny Cakes
Meatloaf, baked potatoes, peas

Biscuits with jelly
Baked Split Chicken breasts, corn, green beans

Sausage gravy, biscuits
Chicken Salad, grapes, bananas

Does anyone know whatever happened to Saturday Stirrings? I really miss that.

I was met with a similar response when I asked the gal at our food co-op if she knew of where I could get some kefir grains. She directed me to an overpriced starter kit that had multiple packets of freeze dried starter in it. I declined since I didn't know if that was the same thing. Everything I've read since would indicate it's not, but that leaves me back at square one not knowing where to get some grains.
