Tonight for dinner we didn't really have a very colorful meal. I didn't think about this until I was preparing plates. Pretty dull looking but it was very good.
I put frozen chicken breasts in my pressure cooker with cream of mushroom soup and slow cooked them for 2 hours. The potatoes are instant and I poured the cream of mushroom soup gravy over them. Frozen broccoli heated up and a roll.
My husband remarked tonight that the pantry is still feeding us really well. LOL It is kind of funny because before we would always look in and say we didn't have anything to eat. We are still going strong.
I added to our pantry today some items from Wic:
2 gallons of milk
1 doz eggs
2 boxes of cereal
1 lb of cheese
1 loaf of bread
1 frozen container of grape juice
I also bought:
2 lbs of Carrots on sale for $0.25 cents per pound
2 more bags of cereal
1 box of oatmeal
Spent $15 those grapes were expensive!! $6 and some change. crazy!
My older two kids and my husband eat cereal for breakfast every morning & I give the baby oatmeal and sometimes scrambled eggs and bacon.
I have not however had to buy any side dishes or meat as we still have plenty to choose from. Tomorrow will have to be something made of ground beef. Maybe homemade pizza. I think I have all of the good stuff for that!
For those of you who are participating how is your pantry challenge going?
