Week Two of the Pantry Challenge...

Last week was relatively successful with our pantry challenge, though I did buy a few items we could live without.  We've done a pretty good job of sticking to the menu with little complaint from my guys.  You can see what we're actually eating every day right here.

On a personal note, this past week marked the one year anniversary of my youngest brother's death.  I miss him all the time, and my boys constantly do things that remind me of him.  It was tough.  Please...take time to tell the people you love that you care, while they're here.

This week:
lunch: London Broil in the crockpot, rice & gravy, corn on the cob (leftover from last week) and green beans, followed by FishMama's chocolate zucchini cake.  Yum!
snack before church: pretzels baked in the oven (some sweet, some salty)
dinner: sandwiches after church in our Fellowship Hall

lunch: frozen pizza, bought last week for 2.99 each
dinner: big chef salads, and leftover beef from Sunday, if anyone wants it

lunch: sandwiches on homemade bread, chips
dinner: tacos, Pioneer Woman's Mexican Rice, homemade refried beans

lunch: leftover pizza 
dinner: breakfast for dinner

lunch: sandwiches & chips
dinner: Nachos made w/leftovers from taco night, perhaps homemade salsa if we have enough tomatoes

lunch: I may be at a workshop, in which case everyone will be on their own
dinner: hamburgers on the grill

lunch: TBA - probably random leftovers from the week!
dinner: TBA

I know I will have to get more eggs and cheese from the grocery store.  Hoping I'll be successful in limiting it to just those two items!!!

the menu marvels at Menu Plan Monday!
