This coming week we are going really low budget for frugal meal plan 8. We are tackling THE FREEZER and THE CABINETS and THE REFRIGERATOR. I just did a major inventory and clean up of the deep freeze and now that I know what is in there and how old some things had gotten way down in the recesses of that thing (*ahem*, wasn’t it 2012 just yesterday?), we decided it is time for a total rehaul of our food stockpile. Yes, I’m eye’ing that bag of barley on the top shelf.

Know what this means? This menu plan will mostly be meal ideas with recipes coming throughout the week as we make them.
