Menu Plan February 11th
We had a crazy week and did not even get to the bulk of our menu.... the girls went to their Mimi and Poppies house for a few days while Ric and I had an evening at our home --A couple's Valentine Party! I will be posting about it soon, so stay tuned!
My pantry and fridge are stocked with items that didn't get used and leftovers from the party. So, we will be eating up pantry style this week. No need to buy anything from the grocery store. I may not even need to buy anything for the next TWO weeks. Yep, it seems we have that much to work with. With a little creativity it can be done!
For Valentines Day: I am planning to have something "Red" to eat! I may exchange one of these recipes out for the red theme day. We may have spaghetti that day---not quite sure...I need to thumb through my pantry again. I did make some Red Velvet Cupcakes and the house is decorated from the party. So, we will enjoy as a family a red themed night on Thursday! I will light some candles too! Hope you have a "romantic" day with your special one(s)!
Remember why we love---because HE first loved us!
