Monthly Meal Plan: September 2010

This month snuck up on me...again.  We're planning our annual apple picking trip to Ellijay this month.  I'm not sure if we'll get to go camping this time, so we'll just wait and see.  I'm looking forward to making more homemade applesauce, apple pies and apple cakes

Also, Dragon Con is back in Atlanta Labor Day weekend.  We are so excited!  Remember last year when I whipped up a Princess Leia costume for Haylei?  We've driven downtown the last couple of years to watch the people.  I love people-watching and Dragon Con does not disappoint.  We love to eat at the Tex Mex Restaurant called Mama Ninfa's.  It's so good and has very reasonably prices.  We might leave the kiddos with my parents this year just so we can stay out a little later, again, we'll just wait and see. 

I found a giant pork roast in the freezer from who knows when, so we're going to plan to eat this.  I'm going to try a few of Melissa D'Arabian's meals this month.  I just love her recipes.  They incorporate most, if not all, of my coupon shopping principles.  I almost always have the pantry items she mentions in the recipes and what I don't have, usually shows up on sale regularly.  We'll be focusing on coupon deals over the next few months, but we're going to be working on a tight budget of $50 a week.  I'm hoping to stockpile some frozen vegetables and pastas.  We'll be keeping an eye out for whole chicken deals, ground beef deals, whole roasts and possibly pork chops.  But really, we'll just stock up what's on sale within our budget. 

Here's the game plan for the month of September:
  1. Pancakes with Sausage
