Weekly Menu 9/1 – 9/7

I have found that over time it is a cost savings to plan a menu each week.  I used to go haphazardly into the grocery store and just buy whatever my ninja heart would desire.  I always ended up wasting food and months down the road finding something cool I bought but had completely forgotten about.  Plus, I shop at the commissary.  They have amazing prices but the produce and meat are not always the most fresh.  I have found planning one week at a time cuts down on the food that goes bad.  I always freeze my meat from there unless I am using it within two days.  I don’t care what the sell by date says, commissary meat goes bad really fast.  That’s government contracts for you.

This week’s menu is………..
