Menu Plan - Pantry Challenge Week 35

Can you believe that we finished our last sweet potato item that I had made from that massive stash of sweet potatoes earlier this year?!  We went out with a bang too.  It was a Sweet Potato & Cranberry Casserole with an Oat Crumble on top.  It was really good and not very sweet.  An all-around thumbs up and that doesn't happen all that much with sweet potatoes.

We're still digging through the deep freeze and finding all sorts of stuff I didn't know I had, much less know that I had four of them!  Surely I'm not alone know who you are...

My inside freezer is now full of breakfasts for my peeps and I am going to attempt something I've never done before, make ahead lunches.  I have been inspired by Amanda over at Saving Myself Silly and her PB&J Biscuit Sandwiches.  They are on the list for Thursday's cooking extravaganza.

Diva started school last week which makes this week the first full, seriously getting back into a routine week.  Aaaaahhhh....routine.  Ne'er was a more beautiful word spoken...

That means not only our daily routine but also my weekly routine of Thursday being my cooking day and Friday my cleaning day.  Oh how I have missed those designated days; they bring me great comfort...although, they would bring me even greater comfort with a Gel Pro mat *hint hint Engineer*.  ;)

Here's what we will be eating this week:

Sunday - Blueberry Pancakes
Monday - Eggplant Casserole, Pasta Salad, and Mango Cole Slaw
Tuesday - Hot dogs, Salad, chips & Guacamole
Wednesday - Venison Roast wrapped in bacon, Ratatouille, and Creamy Leeks
Thursday - Leftovers
Friday - Date Night
Saturday - Leftovers

This is part of Menu Plan Monday.


  1. I, um, might have cooked a corned beef that I found in the bottom of the freezer last week. . . fortunately I'd vacuum sealed it, since it had been there a LONG time! (Still good as new, though!)

    1. I have been playing with my Momma's FoodSaver jar attachment all week. I am LOVING the vacuum sealing process!
