Menu Plan Monday: Menu for Week of 8/31/15

Well, starting this week you're going to see kind of a different format for the menu plan.  I'm going to be doing more pantry dependent meals to help get us through the month without hopefully spending too much on groceries.  So, be prepared because I'm going to make "ingredient notes" to myself in some of the menu items and some of items might seem kind of weird to YOU, but I have them in the pantry right now, thus why you're seeing them.

So, without further ado, here's this week's menu.

Menu for Week of 8/31/15
