Winter Menu Ideas

Way back when, October 20th to be exact, I wrote about the need to write-up a menu rotation for myself so I would be sure to make good use of everything I have socked away. Well, I did that. I even typed it up. But, after that things get fuzzy...I remember throwing up, feeling tired...avoiding the kitchen.... oh, yes, pregnancy. So, my list remained a list and wasn't used (at all maybe?) until these past few weeks since I am finally feeling more like myself.

So, here is my list. It's really more for me than for you, unless you happen to have the same things stored-up as I do. And, starting tomorrow, I am going to share photos and recipes with you of the things on my list as I make them (If I haven't shared them with you already).
