Flavorful & Frugal Menu November 19-25, 2012

I found bananas on sale cheap, $0.25/LB cheap!!, so my family is having bananas for breakfast & all is well with the world!! 

Thanksgiving is this week but I am not hosting this year (I am still coping with surgery complications, next year I hope to though!:-), so I will not have left overs to make meals with.  

Thankfully, I still have meals in the freezer so this is still a 
"Pantry Challenge Menu"  
and an extremely frugal one too.
