Menu Plan Monday

Good Morning, and welcome to another Menu Plan Monday! We have so much in the freezer right now and I really need to get some things used up. Hunting season is just about upon us and I really need to clear some things out to make room for more venison. With this in mind this is our menu plan this week....

MONDAY- Stuffed green peppers*, cheesy potatoes, apple crisp

TUESDAY- Meat loaf, baked potatoes, corn (oops, I was supposed to have this last Friday but didn't)

WEDNESDAY- Vegetable soup, grilled cheese, fruit

THURSDAY- Blueberry pancakes, sausage

FRIDAY- Cabbage stew with pork steak, homemade bread

SATURDAY- We are going to the apple fest! We are pigging out on whatever!

SUNDAY- On our own!
