Menu Plan Monday: August 1-5

     I mentioned in my Meatfree Monday post that I overlooked planning and making a meat free dish last week. This week I was so proud of myself for planning two meat free dishes, so I could be one ahead if this should happen again...and it probably will...but with all my good intentions, one dish has already been put on hold. The first on the list was for a quinoa, corn, and black bean dish. I had never had quinoa before, but I've heard it's really tasty and very healthy. I was even getting a little excited about it...until I got the store. It was $10.69 for a one pound bag! That obviously does not fit into our small grocery budget, especially with the price of everything going up. I think I will still be able to use the recipe, but substitute brown rice for the quinoa.
