Menu Plan Monday: January 3rd
I've declared this month to be *Pantry Clean Out Month*. I participated in a similar challenge last January (there may be one this year in blogland, but I haven't seen one) and I think it should definitely be an annual thing for me~maybe semi-annual! It's amazing how things pile up in the pantry and the freezer that I forget about. So my meal planning will be based on using up what I already have. I always do a pantry check each week before meal planning, but this month I want to hardly buy any groceries at all~just the essentials like milk, eggs, bread...
So here we go:
Monday: Beef Veggie Soup (using various leftovers from this past week and freezer) and buttermilk cornbread
Tuesday: Baked Salmon, Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli
Wednesday: Baked Potatoes
Thursday: Potato and Ham Bake
Friday: Tuna Cornbread Cakes with Potato Cakes (using leftover mashed potatoes from Tuesday)
Saturday: Hamburger Stromboli
