Menu- Jan. 21, 2012

 Welcome to Menu Plan Monday!

Projects this weekend: Whole Wheat Chocolate Chip Waffles and Strawberry Jam from using a free sample of pectin!
Frugal Tip of the Week: If at first you don't succeed try try again! Trying frugal and healthy meals on your family is a big job. For a long time, I couldn't get everyone to eat liver and be content about it, but I kept trying until I got them 'used to it'. Chicken liver can often be found for .99 per pound. It is also loaded with vitamin D and A, which makes it a great frugal choice for your family's health. For the last month, I've worked in fried liver with tater tots once a week! Liver can be hidden by chopping in your food processor and mixing with ground meats too. It freezes well in its container and thaws overnight in the refrigerator.
