We have a lot of great food in our pantry right now. Some of it is canned or frozen from our garden, some things are great deals I got couponing, and some things came from the co-op. In an effort to spend more time at home (and less time out shopping), we are planning menus with a pantry focus, supplemented by fresh fruits and vegetables we picked up at the ethnic markets a few days ago.
We got all this for about $14.50. It should last us a couple weeks.
Steel Cut Oats with Fruits, Nuts and Milk
Pancakes with Applesauce and Milk
Whole Grain Muffins with Frozen Fruit Smoothies
Pumpkin Custard and Cinnamon Toast with Juice
Boxed Cereal, Fruit and Milk (some will repeat)
I 'shopped' in the pantry and freezer this week!
Leftovers from previous days most of the time - one day I want to have Sardines and Crackers with Sliced Cucumbers and Fresh Fruit (craving!).
We'll probably have PBJ and Veggie Sticks one day too!
All Bran Muffins with added orange zest and dry cranberries.
Fresh or Dried Fruits with Dry Cereal (trail mix!)
Crackers and Cheese
Home-Popped Popcorn and Juice
I baked these Sunday, when I made muffins, chex mix, etc. Yum!
