Eating from the Pantry

I’m linking up today to Menu Plan Monday over at Organizing Junkie. Normally, I’d also be linking up to Start Successful on Sunday over at Felicia’s Red Door Life, but Felicia’s on vacation right now. I’m loving SSOS so much that I’m just gonna keep on with it for the consistency and accountability!



Scripture that I cling to at this point in my life
Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

Memories From the Camera:
4 years ago this summer, I finished school and the family all came out for graduation and a family trip to the Grand Canyon.


Ready for graduation, pink fuzzy slippers and all!
Molly (or is that Polly?) really wanted to come along.


The kids were so excited to see Dr. Seuss and the Cat in the Hat!

Menu Plan for the Week
I sort of feel like I’ve been working for months to clean out my pantry.  I guess I have, since it’s July and I’ve been working on this since May. Don’t get me wrong, I really have used up a lot of food!  But I’ve also bought a lot of food.  And I’ve still got a lot to use up.  So my menu this week is using only items that I already have in my fridge and need to use up!  I’m gonna be totally flexible and just list ideas for each meal, rather than actually planning it out day to day.

baked oatmeal (E, X2)
overnight oats (E, X3)
ham and eggs (S, X2)

salad with tuna or salmon (FP, X2)
chicken tacos (S, E, or FP, X2)
deutsche kuche bread with lean turkey (E, X2)
vegetable soup (FP)
kai si ming (S)

fooled ya pizza (S)
chicken curry (S)
crabby patties (S)
alfredo chicken and broccoli (S)
fried salmon (S)
bean salad (E)
fried rice (E)

special agent brownies (S)
cheesecake (S)
boiled eggs (S)
yogurt w/ berries (FP)
ricotta creme (FP)
