My 201st Post and Pantry Week

Can you believe I've had 200 things to say. I'll be the first to admit that most of them are not Pulitzer Prize material. It's still fun to look back though and see my thoughts over the past two plus years.

Seems to be common theme this week. It's PANTRY WEEK. What is Pantry Week you ask? Well, Pantry week is an attempt to be good stewards of the food we've already purchased and an attempt to limit new grocery spending. The food is usually quite creative and sometimes tasty. Tonight I created a new dish (loosely based on Carole's Chicken Spaghetti recipe) and it's baking as we speak.

Pantry Chicken Spaghetti

Cream of Chicken Soup
Cream of Mushroom Soup
Cream of Tomato Soup
Cream Cheese
Velvetta Cheese
Chicken Broth
Garlic Posder
Wortchesire Sauce
White Wine

Cook chicken in broth and white wine, add mushrooms, parsley. In another bowl stir together soups and cheeses. A dash of Garlic Powder and Worthcesire Sauce. Mix with cooked spaghetti.... bake in oven. :)!

Not low fat or low in calorie but used up a ton of ingredients that would have gone bad and tastes Yummy. Notice I didn't list measurements.... The idea is to make it like a sauce so use your best judgment and taste along the way! :)!

Tomorrow Night- TACO's....
Saturday Night Roasted Chicken, Asparagus, Mashed Potatoes
Sunday- Pork Chops, baked potatoes, green beans
Monday - Chicken Tenders, Homemade Fries, Corn, Fruit Salad
Tuesday- Pork Chops Grilled, Mashed Potatoes, Green Beans
Wednesday- Spaghetti
Thursday- GROCERY STORE :)!

Lunches will be leftovers or sandwiches. Breakfasts will be cereal until it's gone, waffles, pancakes and eggs.

Wish my family luck. Can't wait to see an empty Refrig and Pantry. It will be fun filling it up again knowing we wasted very little.
