  • Menu Plan Monday: Continuing the Pantry Challenge

    I did pretty well last week with the pantry challenge, although there were some lunch obligations so instead of eating leftovers for lunch, we had them for dinner the next night. So I didn’t get through my whole meal plan, which is fine. I’m just shifting last Wednesday’s meal to this week:

    Monday – Grilled pizza using artisan bread dough, salad

    Tuesday – Summer Couscous Salad with Shrimp

    Wednesday – Roasted chicken, garlic sauce, sauteed green beans

    Thursday – Mexican “pie” (layers of tortillas, refried beans and cheese); avocado and mango salsa; salad

    Friday – Breakfast (waffles, bacon, eggs)

    Saturday – uncertain

    Sunday – Dinner out
