(last week's Bountiful Basket)
Hello there! I apologize for the lack of posts last week, but it seems that a family full of sickies and a computer keyboard that went died seemed to get the better of me. However, things are looking up. The family is on the mend, and a new keyboard has been purchased and installed. The upside of being stuck at home with the invalids, is that I only spent $6.72 milk this week. My grand total spent on groceries for the month was $484.37. That puts me $84.37 over budget, but the larder is stocked and next month I should be able to stay within my $400.00 budget.
With this week's menu I will be using up some meat out of the freezer that need's to be used. I will also be using up the rest of last week's Bountiful Basket. We will be eating:
Chicken Noodle Soup (I am tossing some wilty looking spinach in the soup to use it up)
BBQ Chicken Sandwiches
Mashed Sweet Potatoes
Venison Steak with Gravy
Home Canned Pears
I seem to have an abundance of cabbage ( I got two heads in my basket last week). So, my favorite Bloggy Friends, I need your ideas! What are your favorite ways to use up cabbage?
