Ok, another week of eating from the pantry. Last week we had a lot of leftovers so one evening we feasted on leftovers. Another night, Shawn had a late meeting, so the kids and I just foraged for food instead of me cooking something. So, there's a couple meals this week that are rolling over from last week. Here's our menu for the week:
bacon and eggs
banana nut muffins
eggs and cinnamon toast
cheese quesadillas and fruit
grilled cheese and fruit
Leftover Fettucine Alfredo from our freezer, spinach salad
Roasted chicken, herbed rice, steamed broccoli with lemon butter sauce
Stovetop Beef Stew, bread
Chicken stir-fry, rice, pineapple
Barbecued Beef Liver (cross your fingers on this one!), mashed potatoes, green beans
Meal with family
You know that you're getting desperate for ideas when you start breaking out the liver recipes. I know this is supposed to be extremely healthy for you, but I'm really uncertain whether I'll be able to get Shawn and the kids to eat the liver. I tried to find the recipe that I thought would be most appealing to them. We'll see how it goes!
I did spend a little more last week on groceries. Our total came to $46.71. This included 6 pounds of bacon, 4 pounds of butter, oats, a green pepper, 2 jalapeno peppers, organic apples, onions, cilantro, 3 avocados, 2 limes, garlic, bananas, tomatoes, and potatoes. So, since December 23rd (3-1/2 weeks) we've spent $95.98 on food. Considering most of that total was produce and dairy, I don't feel too bad about it.
