Ready to shop this week’s best sales?  I’m loving all the baking supplies on sale.  I’m fully stocked up now on flour and sugar – bring on the treats!  And, once again, I’m also working on clearing out the freezer –way too much food in there!  The joys and pains of a deep freezer!

Here are some menu suggestions:
Main Dishes

  • Beef & Veggie Stir Fry – This is the only stir fry that I make just because we love it.  I reduce the amount of steak that I use and increase the veggies, but I love it.  You will do!
  • Chicken Pot Pie – What a wonderful meal for cold weather!  Warm your bellies and your kitchens.  Pie crusts are on sale and this is a great use for them.
  • Roasted Chicken – Make a chicken. Or two!  Use some for a meal and use any leftovers for future meals.
  • Sausage Breakfast Casserole – Did you pick up some of the breakfast on sale?  Have breakfast for dinner with this casserole.
  • Slow Cooker Chicken & Wild Rice Soup – Great time for soup – try this one!

Got M&Ms?  Got chocolate chips?  Make these cookie bars!  It’s essentially a chocolate chip or M&M cookie in bar form.  Perfect for topping with ice cream!
