Menu Monday--Eat from the Pantry Week 1

For the first week of the Eat from the Pantry challenge, I didn't have to think very hard. There was an abundance to choose from and recipes just seemed to flow. I wonder how long that will last?

My menu for this week actually started last Friday with the New Year.

Friday: Brats; Homemade Fries; Green Salad (purchased buns)
Saturday: Steaks; Corn on the Cob
Sunday: Olive-Stuffed Pork Loin, Chicken flavored Rice, Zucchini
Monday: Sausage with Sauerkraut; Applesauce (purchased applesauce)
Tuesday: Tortellini Soup; Garlic Bread
Wednesday: Venison Meatballs w/ Egg Noodles; Green Beans
Thursday: Smoked Ham and Eggs; Bananas; Orange Juice
Friday: Scallop Pad Thai (purchased bean sprouts, cilantro and limes)

Very few item purchased for our menu, but needed several dairy items, fresh fruit for lunches and there was a really good sale on apple juice (with two toddlers we go through a lot). Grand total at the grocery store this week---$27.17


  1. That Pad Thai sounds good! And it's great to see another person from St. Louis on here! Good luck on the "New You" too!!

  2. How do you spend only $27 at the grocery store?! I spend that on just alcohol.

  3. ...and QPSK isn't kidding abou that. :|

    Also spend that much on fresh produce...we eat a lot vegetables and fruit in our house...

  4. Welcome to MPM! The banner looks so nice on your page :)
