Menu Plan - Pantry Challenge Week 33

You want to know something interesting about doing a pantry/freezer challenge?  I've learned that it really is better to do one or the the other.

Every time I start in on the freezer, more canned items get added to the pantry and every time I switch it up and start taking stuff out of the pantry, the more items get made then put into the freezer for later.  It is a never-ending cycle!

Sure, we eat some of it, but by me trying to get ahead, I end up with more than I started with.  I feel like the widow woman in the Old Testament with her vessel of oil that never ran dry - blessed.

This is the last week before school starts so I have to get back into a routine.  

I think I can...I think I can.....

Here's what we will be eating this week:

Sunday - Leftovers
Monday - Sweet Potato Chili and Jalapeno Cornbread (this has been on our menu plan all summer but has yet to be taken out of the freezer and eaten - today my friends, is the day)
Tuesday - Tomato & Spinach Quiche and Salad
Wednesday - Black Beans w/Pico de Gallo, Sour Cream, & Cheese and Leftover Cornbread
Thursday - Steak, Cream of Carrots, and Broccoli
Friday - Date Night
Saturday - Leftovers

This is part of Menu Plan Monday.


  1. I'm stopping by for a visit from Organizing Junkie today.
    It's another 107 degree day in Las Vegas. Man! Am I looking forward to cooler temps. Unfortunately, we don't usually start cooling down till late September or October.
    Your menu for the week sounds delicious!

    1. Thanks for stopping by! Man oh man, 107F! Whew! Glad it's not quite that hot here. :)
