Not So Wordless Wednesday: Amazing Wool

Homegrown Fresh Herbs {Menu Plan Monday}

I finally used our home grown oregano and basil in homemade spaghetti sauce enhanced with a basic white sauce that serves as a substitute for cream of "whatever" soup! Here are some pictures of the herbs from pot to sauce :).

This weeks menu plan: (Busy day today so not too much detail on the menu plan.)

We finally bought some chicken! (Did I mention that since I began to use More With Less cookbook, I've only had to buy meat TWICE?? I need to check, but I'm pretty sure it's been AT LEAST two months!)

I hate dealing with raw chicken, and again, thanks to More With Less Cookbook, I have even more ways I can use already cooked, chopped chicken!

Monday: Leftovers
Tuesday: Chicken Crescent Rolls
Wednesday: Creamed Chicken over Rice
Thursday: Chicken Curry
Saturday: Vietnam Rice (with leftover chicken and leftover rice)
Sunday: Lentil Barley Stew
