Menu with what's on sale Oct. 21-Oct. 27

So sorry. The week has gotten away from me. What with a planting winter garden, to canning mincemeat, applesauce, beef chunks and apples for baking,, dogs, the husband. Oh, I'd better change that to: The husband, the kids, the dogs. He thinks I treat the dogs better than I do him so I'd better not slip up again.

I just wanted to mention that the blog at the end of my blog list on the left, "This week for dinner" is a great reference if you're having a hard time coming up with different menus for dinner. She not only has her menu for the week listed but encourages her readers to put down their menus in the comments section. Some are plain, some are gourmet, some are international, some are simple. It's fun to look at.

Here it is:


1-Cold cereal
2-Instant oatmeal
3-Egg/cheese biscuit, apple juice
4-cold cereal
5-Instant oatmeal
6-Pancakes, sausage links

3-Dinner sausage, sweet and sour red cabbage, frozen vegetables, french bread stick
4-Pork chops, mashed potatoes, milk gravy, frozen vegetables
5-Grilled cheese sandwich, tomato soup
7-Hot dogs, buns. I intended this to be dinner for Halloween. So there are no sides as the kiddoes will probably be so excited that they may not eat much.

Dessert possibilities:
Homemade applesauce
Apple pie or apple crisp
Cut out sour cream cookies(NOTE: buy sour cream at Fry's for $1.19 if you intend on doing this or sour some milk with vinegar if you don't want the added expense. Sour milk works just as well)
Ice cream (leftover from the floats?)
