Hubby is out Monday and gets back late Thursday, so the majority of the week will be just me and the Animal. Notice, I made it singular? Because Princess is working some pretty long hours lately ... sooo. Here we are, just 2 peas in a pod. NOT.
Pantry Challenge is still underway and even though I've made THREE trips to the store, nothing is added to the pantry so that's a good thing!
Sunday - Homemade pizza (pepperoni, sausage, mushrooms, cheese all in stock). Made one Margherita and one pepperoni. This was the WORSE pizza dough I've ever made. Uggg. I think the 1/4 cup oil was TOO much. Also cooked up about 6 lbs of chicken wings from the freezer. Used the grill. A little smoky. Some things are great smoked, others, not so much. The wings fell into the latter in my opinion.
Monday - Tacos. Last bag of taco meat from freezer. Probably going to split cheddar and pepper jack cheese as I'm just about out of cheddar. No sour cream ... how am I going to do this! :) Lettuce, tomatoes, some onion, taco shells are all in stock thankfully.
Tuesday - Baked tater bar. If it's just me and Sonny Boy, then it won't be a potato bar so to speak :) All the fixing are in fridge and pantry. Oh. Wait. I don't have sour cream. And I'm going to have to dig for MORE cheddar cheese, surely there is some in the freezer somewhere?? This whole idea could just be tossed out the windows and I could just opt for something simple, like .... ?
Wednesday - Grilled cheese and tomato soup with chips. The boys have a gig this evening which I'd like to go watch. I'm hoping to pick up a kickbutt camcorder too so I can record it. I'm excited for them as it's close to home AND it's a big deal. IF I can get home early enough that day, I'd like to make them all something, burgers, whatnot just to feed them :) Everything is in pantry, fridge and freezer. I do NOT have buns if I opt for burgers, would just stop at the bread store.
Thursday - Chicken Cesar Pasta Salad ... will be able to keep for Hubby too. Chicken in freezer, pasta from pantry, salad fixins would be ... Costco of course!
Friday - Looking at brats and kraut. I've got that Kirkland Ale and NO ONE will touch the Indian Pale stuff (it's H. E. A. V. Y.) so I think that would be a good beer to cook the brats in. Brats are in freezer, canned kraut (may have to hide that from Hubby) :)
Saturday - Steaks and taters. Steaks are in freezer, taters in pantry. Unless of course we go boating. Then it would be take out pizza. Just because we'd be exhausted from both the heat, sun and activities. Plus it runs late most of the time. AND let's see if I break down and buy a Costco size sour cream??
So how is YOUR Pantry Challenge going?
Linking up with Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday ... keeping me accountable!
