Digging to the Depths of our Pantry/Freezer Menu Plan

Make sure you enter my Giveaway this week for Twinkle Toes Topichkiis!

I'm hoping to spend around $25-$30 this week on groceries, so I took a gander at my pantry and freezer and this is the menu I came up with.

Since I had my Uppercase Living Party I have a ton of breakfast dishes in the freezer. I'm looking forward to pulling from my stash this week. This will be very nice because I'm hoping to jog in the mornings before my toddler wakes up. It will be nice not to have to hurry back and fix something for breakfast, maybe I can even squeeze in a shower?!?!

For lunches we'll either have leftovers or I'll brown some ground beef and add it to something yet to be decided. Last week my toddler was very unsuccessful at eating much meat despite our attempts, I hope this week goes better.


Monday-Sausage biscuit bake, skillet garlic potatoes & fruit

Tuesday-Happy Cinco De Mayo! Spicy Slow Cooker Chicken & Chorizo Stew, cornbread & spinach salad (check back on Thursday for the recipe)

Wednesday-Leftover Night (I have an AWANA award thing to get to and I'm bringing Cheerio Treats)

Thursday-Lentil Rice Casserole (in crockpot), steamed veggies from freezer & fruit

Friday-My dad's having heart surgery so my son and I will be out of town. Hubby will have leftovers.

Saturday-Back home for the River Run, ready of not this two miles is mine! Out and about for lunch but dinner we will have grilled hot dogs, macaroni salad & cooked carrots.

Sunday-Happy Mother's Day! Homemade pizza, frozen veggies, fruit and I'm taking a NAP!
