This Week's Plan 1-29-12

My husband and I have put ourselves on a "Money Diet!"  We are each going to be giving up a couple of things and only grocery shop for necessities.  Last night, we went through our freezers and wrote down everything we have.  We have a TON of food!  LOL  We then came up with a menu plan based off of things we have pre-made and things we can make from what we have.  I'm thinking we probably have close to enough food in there for at least 2 months worth of dinners!  We'll have to buy a few things here and there, but I think this will help us get "back on track!"  If you haven't done this with your own freezer lately, I highly recommend it.  You will see how wasteful (or forgetful) you're being.  Use that stuff up before it's too late!!!!

With the Super Bowl coming this Sunday, I thought I'd make a couple of treats for us, but ones that won't break the bank!  If you're looking for other appetizers, click here.

Here's This Week's Plan:

Sunday: Beer Chili

Monday: The Best Bean and Ham Soup (this was in our freezer)

Tuesday: Leftover Beer Chili

Wednesday: BBQ Country Ribs

Thursday: Leftover Ribs

Friday: White Chicken Chili

Saturday: Leftovers

Sunday: Apricot Glazed Wings and Cheesy Chorizo Dip

  1. I too need to clean out our pantry. Good luck with your quest!

  2. Yay! The last thing I want to clean out from my freezer is the leftover ham(with bone) from Christmas. Your ham and bean soup is just the ticket. It's going on the menu next week.
