So here is a shot at our menu for this week, using up what we already have:
Monday: Sticky chicken, green beans
Tuesday: Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, peas
Wednesday: Spaghetti, salad
Thursday: Chili, cornbread
Friday: Leftovers or dinner out
Saturday: Buffalo chicken soup
Sunday: Homemade pizza
Breakfast is always either oatmeal, cold cereal or eggs. Lunch is usually leftovers. I pack the boys leftovers or peanut butter and jelly for their school lunches. Hubby is on the road so don't have to worry about him. I eat whatever is convenient and (hopefully) healthy....it isn't always pretty though!!
The Sticky Chicken and Buffalo Chicken Soup are from Sparkpeople recipes that I found today. I can't wait to try them...they sound absolutely delish!! I'll report back how it turns out.
Sticking to the plan, I should only need milk and bread from the store this week, plus I'll grab any BOGOs that make sense for us and some other loss leaders. I haven't checked them out yet so have no idea what they are.
How about you? Do you try to plan your meals around your pantry?
