Menu Plan Monday 4/26/10

Yesterday, my husband and I did an inventory of our pantry and freezer. I found 23 boxes of cereal, 6 cans of tomatoes, 3 bottles of ketchup, 2 bottles of vegetable oil, 6 boxes of oatmeal and lots more. Needless to say, I need to try and use up some of what I have stockpiled. (Let's not even get into the non-food stockpile--11 bottles of laundry soap!)

I got on allrecipes.com and started searching recipes by ingredient and came up with some menus for this week. I really love being able to find recipes by just typing in what I have on hand. Try it some time!

Breakfasts
cereal with milk
granola bars
instant oatmeal
bagels with cream cheese
toaster strudels
raisin toast
fruit

Lunches
Progresso soups
PB and J sandwiches
Egg salad sandwiches
carrot sticks
fruit
yogurt

Dinners

Braised Balsamic Chicken, rice, steamed veggie
Pizza, salad
Apricot Chicken, sugar snap peas, salad, biscuits
Chipped beef with gravy over toast, steamed veggie
Spaghetti sauce, noodles, salad, homemade bread
Pancakes, Canadian bacon, fruit
Tangy chicken fajitas

AllRecipes is my go-to website any time I have to cook something...it makes things so much easier (and tastier!)

Thanks for your comment on HoT! I love that funky chair too. I found the same one online here.
But here is a totally different one that I'm madly in love with too! Perfect for a turquoise room!

Yeah - we just did a pantry assessment too. I did the Eat from the Pantry challenge back in Jan and have had a severe relapse into my old ways!
