We are trying to use up the irrational amount of food that we have stockpiled in the pantry and freezer during the month of January. I have been reading blogs where the family has decided that they are absolutely not going to go to the grocery store. We already have, we ran out of bananas. But, I think we are going to be able to cut back on the grocery bill a lot this month. Below is this week’s meal plan that utilizes food on hand.
Sunday 1/5 – Trader Joe’s Tofu turkey (this is REALLY good) and root vegetables
Monday 1/6 – Broccoli quiche and chicken breakfast sausage
Tuesday 1/7 – Crockpot chicken chili with tortilla chips
Wednesday 1/8 – Homemade cream of tomato soup and grilled cheese
Thursday 1/9 – Orzo risotto with sun dried tomatoes, broccoli and artichoke hearts
Friday 1/10 – Cod and cauliflower tots
Saturday 1/11 – OUT! We have been invited to a potluck and all I am responsible for is dessert. I will be bringing brownies and ice cream.
Breakfasts will be oatmeal, eggs, cereal bars or smoothies. Lunches are usually leftovers from previous dinners. Snacks are usually fruit, nuts, crackers, etc.
