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!
