2 Week Menu Plan

It was still pretty easy to come up with 2 weeks worth of meals this time. I can't believe the Pantry Challenge hasn't been too tough yet. Maybe if I limited myself even further with the grocery budget I'd have to dig a little deeper creatively . . .

Dinners for 2 weeks:

Mac 'n' Cheese Pie - pasta from pantry, milk for sauce from freezer
Skillet Squash Pasta - freezer meal & DH teaching
Dinner at church
BBQ Ribs & French Fries - freezer fries & meat, pantry bbq sauce
Men's Meat night - Pork tenderloin (kids & I taking side dish to another dinner)
Soft Tacos - freezer meat, pantry salsa
Fettucini Alfredo with chicken - freeezer chicken, pantry pasta & sauce
Artichoke Heart Pasta - Making for meal swap
Pot Roast - meat from freezer
Burritos - beans from pantry
Baked Potato Soup - milk & bacon from freezer, potatoes from pantry
Pasta & Red Sauce - pasta from pantry, sauce from freezer & pantry
Turkey dinner

I'm also getting an influx of freezer meals halfway through this meal plan! It doesn't seem significant, but I can see the contents of my freezer & pantry slowly and surely diminishing. Another few weeks and it might really start to show!

DH's birthday was last week and he requested brownies with chocolate frosting for his treat. I had a brownie mix, but my frosting seems to have disappeared (none of the kids fessed up, but I'm SURE I had some). Hm. So I made frosting from scratch. It was a bit of a challenge to find a recipe that didn't call for cocoa powder (I have none), but I did have some unsweetened Ghiradelli baking chocolate and that did the trick. It was super yummy.
