  • Well this week is a so-so week unless something happens...tonight it's frozen pizza, watermelon, and cake (DD's birthday), tomorrow we have some "sausage" patties (I think it's brat meat in patty form) that we'll grill, and have on buns with who knows what veggie & either more watermelon or pineapple, and other meals will include a pasta/veggie/hamburger/cream soup hotdish, spaghetti, and probably some chicken & potatoes.

  • Family pack of ground beef is a staple for us. We divide it into 1 lb. packages and get four meals out of it. I use it for chili, goulash, Spanish rice, etc. We usually have spaghetti once a week. Lately we've been buying a frozen pizza on Fridays due to busy schedules.
