Menu Plan: September 30 - October 6
The cabbage man was at the farmers' market. Who is the cabbage man? He is a man I look for each year. He shows up at the middle or end of September and he only sells cabbages. He knows his cabbages. He sells his "small" ones for $1.00. His small ones are rather large. His large ones are $1.50. They are at least 15 pounds each. Last year, I bought two and turned one into sauerkraut. This year, I bought three and I'm turning two into sauerkraut. So, we have some cabbage in our meals this week, as well.
Sunday was the Feast of St. Jerome, Jerome's patron. Because it was Sunday, we diverted our celebration to Monday. We did our lion cupcakes again and talked about this great Doctor of the Church.
Again, things are kind of getting away from me here, so the menu is a bit late. You'll notice that our costs are a little higher this week. Still within our budget, but we're eating more treats. Our average per person, per dinner is $1.37.
