I'm proud to say that today is the first time in years I've planned a menu.
The way it's planned, I'll only have to cook three nights and then we'll have leftovers for three nights, tweaking the meal only a little bit, like having mashed potatoes with the leftovers instead of noodles.
Two of the recipes are crock pot recipes. I've never cooked any of these things before, so this should be interesting.
The trick now is to get everything for my menu at the lowest cost possible.
