Menu Plan Monday & Pantry Challenge Wrap Up

I've been diligently eating out of the freezer and pantry since December 1st. We DID end up getting take-out over the weekend, but no grocery shopping trips. We have an extra refrigerator in the garage that was full of food from a big Thanksgiving shopping trip and an upright freezer that I had filled with freezer meals, frozen veggies and such. Plus, we drink mostly Soy Milk and had a case already, along with a five dozen eggs, etc. I spent $0.00 for dinners for the past two weeks!! Right now, there are just three of us at home but two of our grown-up kids were home over the past two weekends. Phew! I'm still in the use-it-up mode so this week's menu is mostly from the freezer but I will definitely need to shop for some sides and fresh salad fixings.

Monday – Asian Flank Steak (Chill MAMAs meal), Broccoli, Rice
Tuesday – Three Cheese Enchiladas (made last month
Wednesday – Corned Beef Hash (from Sunday’s dinner)
Thursday – Herb Crusted Pork Chops (Chill MAMAs meal I didn’t get to last week)
Friday – Homemade Pepperoni Pizza, Salad
Saturday – Chicken and Dumplings
Sunday – use it up!

Head on over to OrgJunkie for more menu planning ideas! And, if you're reading this post, please leave a comment - they make me smile. Thanks!!!!
