I'm still trying to stick with a pantry challenge to some extent this last week of the month ... Hubby is out of town Tuesday to late Friday evening ... and so long as I stay on track and DO NOT
::Must stay focused::
Ok ... here's what we are looking to eat this week!
Sunday - it's chilly here (um, sorry, low of 52 this morning, high of 70 this afternoon) so Hubby wants to do some grillin ... burgers (3 pounds from freezer) and chicken thighs (bone in, 4 pounds from freezer) ... will also serve fries (freezer) and some sauteed shrooms and peppers and onions (that I had cooked earlier in the day for easier meal prep for lunches through out the week) ... the kaiser rolls in the pantry are getting a little hard but Hubby will juice them up with an oil and herb-y mixture and toast them on the grill. Serving 6
Monday - I'm thinking it's leftovers as there looks to be a lot of food Sunday ... feeding 4
Tuesday - fingers crossed the Boy isn't home tonight ;-) Thai Style Shrimp Salad ... shrimp in the freezer, will shred some red cabbage (fridge) along with green cabbage (fridge), carrots (fridge) ... avocado and mango are also in the fridge ... bag of radishes in the fridge too ... I have this covered! But then again, I keep looking at the Island Shrimp recipe and think maybe I want that instead ... but I do have cabbage I need to be eating so it doesn't go bad ... oh, the decisions!
Wednesday - Evil Jungle Steak Salad - will use the sliced beef from freezer (Costco) ... salad stuff in the fridge and dressing ingredients from the pantry/fridge. I'm excited about this! ;-) Feeding 5
Thursday - I'm looking to take an easy way out this evening ... so here's to meatballs, baby ... meatballs in the freezer (Costco) and jarred marinara sauce (pantry). IF the kids want, they can make some pasta (pantry) to go along and maybe, some garlic rolls (rolls in freezer, garlic in fridge) ... I should have some salad stuff still leftover too. Then I'm also thinking of making some of these Sweet and Spicy Meatballs too ... Feeding 5
Friday - Hubby home! Yeah! Chopped Steaks with Mushroom Gravy (beef from freezer, balance of ingredients from pantry - will use canned shrooms) ...
Saturday - Hubby's Choice ... I'm sure we will be entertaining so probably something along the lines of chicken breast on the grill (plenty of chicken breast after the Costco trip earlier this month) ... feeding 8 to 10 most likely ...
