I am joining in the Summertime Pantry Challenge hosted by Jessica. Last week I got busy and didn't get around to putting out our menu. You should know that it's only my 17 year-old son and me, so our food can be stretched pretty far. Another thing you should know is that I am on Weight Watchers, so sometimes I *do* fix 2 meals, one for me and one for him, or a variation for each.
I had plenty of meat, rice, potatoes, and veggies on hand, but I am not staving off grocery shopping entirely. I shop at Publix, and they have certain deals that come around every 4-6 weeks. I had some too-good-to-pass-up coupons that matched some deals this week, so I *did* stock up. You can see those here.
So, last week we ate these items from the freezer: flounder, chicken, Boca crumbles in spaghetti (which son did not know), steamed veggie bags, and for son's lunches and snacks: hot dogs and lunchmeat. From the pantry we had: packaged rice, jarred spaghetti sauce, and potatoes made a variety of ways.
This week's menu:
Monday: Breakfast: cereal and blueberries for me/son does not eat breakfast in the summer
Lunch: hot dogs or lunchmeat for the son/canned chicken to make chicken salad and Ritz
Dinner: chicken in the crockpot with Lipton onion soup mix
Tuesday: Breakfast: same for me
Lunch: fruit smoothie made with frozen strawberries, pineapple, and blueberries with Greek yogurt
in the fridge
Dinner: spaghetti with jarred sauce in pantry
Wednesday: Breakfast: none for me....liquid diet today in preparation for outpatient surgery Thursday
Lunch: son: hot dogs or lunch meat
Dinner: son: fish and chips
Thursday: Breakfast: none due to outpatient surgery
Lunch: out somewhere
Dinner: hamburgers and homemade fries
Friday: Breakfast: cereal and blue berries for me
Lunch: hot dogs or lunchmeat for son/chicken salad and crackers for me
Dinner: chicken, rice or potaotes, veggie
That's as far as I've gotten for the week; I will re-assess later and plan the weekend.
