Planning ahead: April menus


More important than ever that I continue to menu plan:

-upcoming surgery means that we need easy prep meals, but need to also draw from supplies on hand
-monies not spent on groceries (we are continuing with $200/mo)are allocated towards the expenses of the upcoming move, paying off medical debt
-the impending move also means that I plan (at least for now) to sell my freezer; it needs to be emptied

Here are my April menus:

1-dinner for 2: fzn small Shepardess pie; green salad
2-tuna salad sandwiches
3-marinated w/ teriyaki, baked chicken thighs (fzn);  rice, fzn wax/gr bean blend
