We're running out of food supplies. Can't wait to get some money this week. I might be doing a week of Hillbilly Housewives meals. Gotta make what is left stretch at least a week. Meat is running on slim pickings in the freezer. Last night we ate pasta with sauce and cheese with garlic bread. No meat in it. Tonight it's bbq pork sandwiches and baked beans. Well my mother bought us the roasted pork. That was from the parish festival up the block from us. They do pork,lamb and chicken. I had a bag of hamburger buns in the freezer I pulled out to thaw. Got baked beans going in the crock. Making a mess of calico beans from Hillbilly Housewives. But minus the cooked ground beef. Need that last tube of hamburger meat for some other meal this week. So my menus are up in the air all week.

Everything this week is from what we have in the freezer/pantry/fridge:

Not really a plan here because different people will be gone for several days at a time. So the plan is to use up leftovers (both in fridge & freezer), grilled cheese, frozen pizza, hot dogs, eat out once for 24ds b-day, kids can always go to Gramma's. :-)

12ds left yesterday for Scout camp thru Sat.; dh will join him Wed. night. I leave Thurs. morning for CA thru Sun. That leaves 13ds and 19ds here at home. They're pretty good at fending for themselves.
