Menu Plan Monday 1/4/10
With the start of the new year, I have made it a goal to get back to menu planning and coupon shopping. I am also participating in Eat From The Pantry Challenge with Crystal at Money Saving Mom. Yesterday, my husband and I did a complete inventory of our pantry and freezers. Last night I made a list of about 30 meals using what I have on hand, with just a few items to purchase through the month. I will just need a few ingredients and some fresh fruits and vegetables.
Here is what I have planned for the first week of the pantry challenge:
Breakfasts: cereal (I have 18 boxes on hand!), milk, granola bars, bagels, toaster strudels, grapefruit, OJ
Lunches: leftovers, PB&J sandwiches, lean cuisines
Pancakes, sausage or bacon, homemade applesauce and juice
Chicken Pasta Primavera, homemade bread, salad
Dirty Rice, biscuits, fruit
Homemade tomato soup, grilled cheese sandwiches
Hotdogs, home fries, fruit
Salisbury steak, gravy, rice, peas
Be sure to check back later this week when I post my entire freezer/pantry inventory.
