Menu Plan Monday
Last week, I played the "How far can you stretch a hunk of beef?" game.
This week, I'm doing the same thing with chicken. I'll be roasting two chickens on Tuesday and then eating off of one most of the week. Most of the second chicken will be chopped up to freeze for easy prep later.
Without further adieu, here's what's cooking at Mary Ann's House this week:
B-leftover pancakes from Saturday night
L- I took an apple spinach salad and a homemade apple pie for lunch with our home fellowship.
