Menu Plan Monday

I didn't actually make it to the grocery store this weekend. I had planned to, but it turned out to be a pretty busy weekend. My husband picked up milk and bread to get us through. I'm not sure if I will need to head out again mid-week for other stuff or no. Based on the menu I have planned, we should be good except for maybe milk.

On Saturday, I spent my afternoon cleaning out my pantry. I was inspired after entering the giveaway at $5 Dollar Dinners, where I submitted a picture of my pantry, in need of a makeover. I decided, despite not winning, that it really did need a makeover. More to come on this one.

Cleaning out my pantry actually resulted in my "creating" a new dinner - Chicken Pasta Bake - originally titled Clean out the Pantry Chicken Dinner, but after eating it, it will likely become a more routine meal, so I had to give it a nicer name. Recipe to come on this one.

At our house, the focus is on dinners. I tend to only list the main course and any standard side we have with it. We do still have vegetables and/or fruit with each of our dinners, I just don't always call them out.

Weekdays breakfast is at daycare for my daughter, the rest of us eat cold cereal, frozen waffles, oatmeal, toast or whatever strikes our fancy. Lunch we pack, usually leftovers for me.
