Menu Plan Monday for January 12th

Hey look!  I'm back!

Sorry for dropping off the face of the Earth.  December was crazy busy and then I had ongoing internet problems.  I could only use my phone to get online. 

So now that I'm back, how 'bout a little menu planning?  You know, being January, I always do the Eat from the Pantry challenge.  This is the second week I'm doing this.  Basically, I try to eat from what I have in the freezer, pantry and cellar to spend as little as possible this month.  I usually just have to stop by the store for milk or bread. 

Here's what we're having this week:

Monday:  Cheeseburgers, loaded baked potato fries, and salad
Tuesday:  Soup beans and cornbread
Wednesday:  Chicken tacos (from the freezer), refried beans (from soup beans), peaches
Thursday:  Kielbasa and potatoes, baked apples
Friday:  Pizza night
Saturday:  Best meatloaf ever, mashed potatoes and green beans
Sunday:  Cracker Barrel Broccoli Cheddar Chicken, carrots.

And since it's pantry challenge time, here's the rest of our food plan:.

Breakfast:  Rotation of oatmeal, coco wheats, waffles and eggs
Lunch:  Leftovers, PB&J, soup, sloppy joes
Snacks:  Carrots or celery and dip, yogurt, apples, oranges, kiwi, grapes, trail mix.
Treats:  Banana bread, Pudding chip cookies

That's it. 

So, what's good at your place?

I'm linking up with orgjunkie.com today.  Hop on over for more great menu planning ideas.
