Menu Plan Monday - Eating from the Pantry Part 1

Homemade Pizza, Breadsticks, Salad, and Fruit

Since I accepted Crystal and FishMama's Pantry challenge, I started my menu plan this week on January 1. Weird for me? Yes. It works anyway. :)

I did splurge and buy John crab legs for dinner last night since it was his birthday but since that comes out of our 'gifts' budget, I officially haven't spent any of my $50 monthly allotment yet. I do need to stop and buy a gallon of milk tomorrow but everything else can wait until our usual Saturday errands run.

So, here's the menus: January 1 to January 9, 2010.

January 1, Friday:
Brunch: Homemade Cinnamon Rolls, Oranges, Grapefruit and Grapes
Dinner: Snacky dinner (fruit, crackers, etc.) for the kids, Out for the parents

January 2, Saturday:
Brunch: Out for all (Bible Study)
Dinner: Macaroni and Cheese with Sliced Apples for the kids, Leftover for the parents

January 3, Sunday:
Brunch: Waffles with Strawberries and Raspberries
Dinner: Crab Legs, Baked Butternut Squash, Mango, Orange and Banana Salad
