Well, another week down on the *eat from your pantry* challenge! Whoo hoo! I've been doing pretty well. Last week I only spent about $20 on some essentials like milk and eggs. My pantry is starting to look a little bare and so is my fridge. This week I spent a tad bit more because...
...my hubby threw another challenge at me. He wants to try at least a version of the Daniel fast, focusing on mainly eating vegetables and fruits for about 10 days or so. Sooo, I am now looking for delicious recipes that are strictly veggies with simple seasonings. What I would like to happen is that I find some great healthy dishes that we all like and that I can incorporate into our menus permanently. I usually try to do one meatless meal a week, but I would like to do more.
So if you have any that you'd like to share, please pass them on!
Today I went to the store and stocked up on tons of fresh veggies. I'm not feeling too bad about what I spent, since it was pretty much all on fresh produce. And I'm very excited about trying some new recipes!
Last week's menus were about 2 for 6, so we are rerunning at least one of those this week. Probably the meatless one...lol
Monday: Pinto Beans, Spinach and Cornbread
Tuesday: Baked Fish, Veggie-Stuffed Baked Potatoes and sauteed zucchini
Wednesday: Greek Caponata
Thursday: Broccoli, Butternut Squash and Roasted Carrots
Friday: Honey-Orange Glazed Ham Steaks, Acorn Squash Wedges and pureed cauliflower
I also have lots of special salads planned for lunches this week and I am also making hummus for the first time to have with some yummy pita chips that I made recently. I should have some new recipes to share with you soon!
