I'm still trying to shop from the pantry as much as I can to make meals more interesting and less monotonous as there are days we swear we're going to start sprouting feathers eating so much chicken. I have very small amounts of beef I pick up from time to time when I can find it cheap, so I'm really working hard on recipes to make those little amounts of meat go as far as I can.
So, here's this week's menu using things like a few thin sliced round steaks I found at the store that are starting to get freezer burned used in tonight's dinner.
Menu Plan for Week of 8/10/15
Monday: Crock Pot Beef Stroganoff (pantry friendly ingredients), salad
Tuesday: Chicken Pesto Pasta (use dried pesto mix from pantry), fruit cocktail
Wednesday: Pork Chops, rice, cheesy mixed veggies
Thursday: Brined orange chicken, leftover rice, green beans
Friday: Pancakes (make extra for school breakfasts later and freeze them) with blueberry syrup (from pantry), bacon, eggs.
Saturday: Black olive and ham Pizza (use ham from freezer for topping)
Sunday: Baked chicken, stuffing, mashed potatoes
Desserts: Orange Fluff Jello (use items in pantry), S'mores (microwave).
Baking: Make branch bread (didn't make this last week), white bread, cookies for school lunches (Tuesday: Baking Day).
