    First week of November:

    -- pigs in blankets, spinach salad
    -- chicken, corn, spinach
    -- tacos, spanish rice
    -- pasta, vegetable
    -- chicken thighs, curry vegs over rice
    -- fish, sweet potato fries
    -- chicken, veg?
    Stop trying to organize all of your family’s crap. If organization worked for you, you’d have rocked it by now. It’s time to ditch stuff and de-crapify your world.

    If you're not using the stuff in your home, get rid of it. You're not going to start using it more by shoving it into a closet.

    Use it up, Wear it out,
    Make it do, Or do without. ~unknown

    Because we, the people, have the power to build a better future. KH

    I found lots of short-sale markdowns at the grocery store this week:

    brisket: $1.49/lb (6+ pounds)
    Bacon Cheddar Beef Patties ($3 for 21 oz) I bought 3 packs, 12 burgers.
    spicy Italian sausages (2 lbs for $3)


    I have the brisket roasting in the oven, and I grilled all the burgers and sausages.

    So, the menu:
    Nov 1 - burgers, chopped salad
    2 - lasagna, salad (using prev purchased ground beef)
    3 - hot brisket sandwiches, salad, crudités
    4 - fried rice, w/ peas & carrots
    5 - lentil/sausage stew
    6 - fish from freezer, rice, frozen veg
    7 - leftovers/freezer challenge

    Although I'm pulling fish out of the freezer, a bunch of the burgers, brisket, and sausage will go back in.

    Found a recipe for tuna/corn/cheese chowder. This will use up 2 frozen tuna burgers that hubby won't eat. Told him the plan and got the usual response "ewwww". Said I am making it anyway, you are welcome to eat leftovers.

    Yes exactly. Kaiserschmarrn.
    The dish actually comes from Austria. But it is also popular in southern Germany. :-)

    Menu plan went sideways last week, so some things got bumped:

    -- bbq pork shoulder, corn
    -- chicken, green bean casserole
    -- tuna rice bowl, vegs, spring rolls
    -- mac&cheese, spinach
    -- turkey, etc.
    -- leftovers
    -- chili

    I had not heard of Kaiserschmarrn before, but it sounds decadent.

    I need to get back on the meal planning band wagon. Not planning is messing with my stash management.
