I subscribe to Mary Hunt's Everyday Cheapskate newsletter and this morning's message really rang true. If you don't subscribe, you can still read the short article. I feel comforted when I look at the economy and the havoc its wreaking and remember that we have a little "money in the bank". Do you?
On to the menu...we caught a nice deal on bone in beef short ribs yesterday so those are on our menu for later this week. I love them with sauerkraut but DH isn't wild about them and absolutely refuses to eat the kraut. He'll eat the ribs broiled and barbecued, though, if they're tender.
I work tonight but most of tonight's dinner is prepared already and I'll finish making it and eat before I go. We'll have leftover boneless beef ribs, green beans, and baked potato.
The rest of the week we'll have, in no particular order:
Jewish chicken, sugar snap peas, and mixed greens
Homemade chicken pot pie with salad and steamed spinach
Scrambled eggs, homemade turkey sausage, and toast
Soup, but I'm not sure what kind yet - more than likely Beef, Barley and Vegetable with homemade whole wheat rolls
Beef short ribs, salad, and green beans
Those meals are all thrifty, easy to make and tasty and that's what we like. :)
