"Eat From the Pantry Challenge" Meal Update



How are you doing on your “Eat from the Pantry Challenge?”  Are you still on board?

It’s been a few days since I’ve updated, but I thought I should post what we’ve been eating around here.  We haven’t been back to the store yet since we bought milk last weekend, so we’re doing well on the money saving part!  J

Here’s what we’ve been eating around the house….

Monday—
My girls were not at home on Monday and my hubby was working so I just ate what I could find around the house….definitely not a healthy eating day because I just snacked all day long.

Monday evening my husband and I had a meeting to attend where the meal was catered so, once again, I didn’t have to worry about cooking.

Tuesday—
For breakfast the girls and I had cereal and fruit.  At lunchtime we had a Soup, Salad and Scripture get-together at our church, so we ate Taco Soup and salad while we were there.

At supper time I decided to make some homemade pizza!  I didn’t have any ground beef on hand, but I did have everything to make some good ol’ pepperoni pizza!  I like this recipe for the homemade pizza dough because it’s quick and doesn’t require any yeast! 

I also whipped up a quick Apple Dump Cake in my Pampered Chef Deep Dish Covered Baker using a can of apple pie filling, jiffy yellow cake mix and a stick of butter which we had all of on hand. 

Wednesday (Today)—
For breakfast we were a little more hungry today so I scrambled some eggs and made some toast—all of which we already had at home.

For lunch I reheated the leftover pizza from last night’s supper for the girls.  I had some leftover salad from yesterday’s lunch at the church.

On Wednesday nights we always eat at the church so we don’t have to worry about anything tonight!

I was looking for some ‘snacky’ food this afternoon and came across some Indiana Popcorn that I had stuffed in the cabinet for awhile.  I was actually shocked at how good it was!  I couldn’t hardly stop eating it!  YUM!

So basically, this week is going pretty well with the “Eat from the Pantry Challenge.” We haven’t spent any money from our weekly budget, so maybe I’ll have some saved to take over to our trip next week!
