Here we are, another week in to the Pantry Challenge and another week for Menu Planning.
I skipped last week, only because we had so many leftovers that we just heated up whatever we wanted when we wanted. It was sort of nice to have a life of ease … but I missed the guidance that appears to keep me focused!
So, all intentions are to use up the Pantry and Freezer stuff … and looks like I can do this easily enough…
Sunday – boating day and had a few friends over so it was the red sauce with pasta and garlic bread and turkey meatballs (recipe coming) … pretty tasty and ALL from the pantry … no special trip to the store! I also used up some tomatoes and made a quick tray of tomatoes, mozzarella and fresh basil drizzled with balsamic vinegar and olive oil.
Monday – GYM – turkey wraps (all in fridge)
Tuesday – GYM – Chicken Cesar Salad (chicken in freezer, salad stuff in fridge, dressing in pantry)
Wednesday – Sausage and peppers on the grill (not sure yet if I will use bread or not, IF I can get to bread store I will, if not, will use tortilla shells). Sausage is in freezer, may use peppers from freezer too since they will need to be non-crunchy.
Thursday – GYM – Leftovers, fend for yourself (soup, salad, sandwiches, whatever!)
Friday – Homemade pizza (tons of mozzarella cheese in freezer, sausage, pepperoni too. all other items from the pantry)
Saturday – Steaks (freezer) and potatoes (pantry)
I am hoping to only get to the store for milk, bread, bagels and lettuce this week. Keeping my fingers crossed that it’s all I need. Sonny Boy would really like some Carnation but we’ll see … I’ve got a $3 off $30 coupon for Publix so maybe I can use that to get me to the $30 required.
Linking up with Menu Plan Monday’s! Hop on over there to check out 100’s of others!
