Menu for 5/14 - 5/28

Two weeks is going by way to fast! There has to be a way to slow time down. My kids wish I could fast forward just a bit. They are so ready for school to get out.

So it is that time again...Menu time! It's a bit of a teaser of what is to come. I am way ahead on my blog. Almost two weeks! I just cook way too much. HINT HINT to the hubby! No, I like to cook. Some days more than others. Hearing my brats tell me that dinner smells good is enough to keep me in the kitchen.

Making a menu is key if you want to cut down your grocery bill. We eat out very rarely. Taking the family out to dinner is a cool hundred bucks. Pizza in the restaurant is at least fifty bucks. Having it delivered is cheaper. Making homemade is the cheapest! The Grocery clerk was amazed at how much I spend on groceries but when I asked her how many times she eats out in one week, her reply was two to three times a week! I guarantee I spend less each month on food even with the high priced items I cook. Another plus is knowing that each items is healthier when made at home and I can ensure my kitchen is clean. How many times have you pulled a hair out of a dish while eating out? Gross!

If you are interested in seeing my previous menus, then here are the last two!
