Menu Plan Monday: Week of January 20, 2013, Pantry Challenge Week #3

One of our camping meals this past summer - I just reserved our site for this summer, so I have camping on the brain!  Here we have strawberries, grapes, and grilled zucchini, potatoes, and some very well done steak!
This is our 3rd week of our pantry challenge.  I totally didn't get to posting the shopping trip from this week but we have just enough money left to purchase some fruit next week.  Other than that, I bought basically fruit (oranges and melon), 2 gallons of milk (coupon) and 2 tubs of Smart Balance (sale w/coupons).  I ordered TP using Swagbucks or we'd have been in trouble - we have 2 rolls left right now from the package we had at the beginning of the month and no way will that get us to the end of the month!  We were so blessed to be given 2 bunches of bananas, 6 muffins, 3 dozen cookies and a half a gallon of apple juice after the Scout's Pinewood Derby on Saturday.  So we have loads of bananas and have eaten waaaay too many cookies since Saturday. 

Anyway, we have $4 and change left from our original $50 for the month.  We'll just squeak in.   We seem to do really well with $80 for the month but $50 is a tight squeeze, especially now that the children are bigger and eating more.
