My Weekly Menu Plan with Valentine's Day Food Fun!

The Yellow Farmhouse Weekly Menu Plan
for February 11th thru 17th

Notes: Due to sickness and the gift of helping out friends last week’s menu plan was tweaked mightily. The good news was that with all my menu preplanning the tweaking was done with food we had on hand. We are so thankful that we had the opportunity to help out two families with food this week.
Food wasted last week: 2 more clementines- these things seem to be going south fast. The taste was kind of off this last box we bought so we haven’t been eating them as fast as before… perhaps I should just make juice. Good thing they’re compostable. Approximately 2 cups of slow cooker oatmeal went into the trash. It made way too much for us girls (Little Mr. doesn’t like it) and after three days of it we were done too. It was okay but not mouth watering. This is the 2nd time I’ve tried a recipe for overnight crockpot oatmeal, I may just give up.
