Only ten more days to go in my "Eat from the Pantry Challenge". All I’ve picked up from the store has been four loaves of bread and six gallons of milk. In case you’re wondering, yes, I do go through about twelve gallons of milk a month. Don’t mention it to Ronnie. I’m not interested in milking a cow on top of everything else I do each day. (This would actually be a funny comment if it wasn’t so true.)
The good news is that I have finally made a big dent in my freezers, so I can go to my brother’s and pick up the meat I have stored in his freezer. We ended up keeping a cow and a half this year and on top of the extra chickens I had ordered from Emily, our freezers are overwhelmed. Not that I’m complaining. It was just good to make some room this month.
I don’t really have anything that out of the ordinary scheduled for this week, so that’s nice. Just the regular chaos. With that said, here’s this week’s menu:
Monday: Vegetable beef soup and homemade rolls
Tuesday: BBQ chicken and baked potatoes with applesauce
Wednesday: Baked potato bar and peaches
Thursday: Grilled chicken, green beans and carrots
Friday: Parmesan tilapia, baked potatoes and green beans
Saturday: Chicken and potato skillet, peaches
Sunday: Pineapple pork roast, rice and carrots
Breakfast will continue to be a rotation of eggs, oatmeal and cocoa wheats.
Lunch is leftovers, soup and sandwiches
Snacks will be carrots and dip, trail mix and apples
Treats will be chocolate chip bundt cake and no bake cookies.
And there you have it.
