Menu Plan: April 13, 2014

Frugal Chatter-
 I bought a large pack of hamburger meat on Saturday, on "sale" for $2.19 a lb. I made a BBQ Joe mix that we will have multiple times on homemade bread.
We will have spinach and lettuce, green onions, chives, and kale from the garden.
The chickens have been providing a surplus of eggs! Go chicks!
I will also make a batch of slaw that will last for multiple meals. Love getting in raw veggies!
