Menu Mondays November 26- December 2, 2012

I didn't host Thanksgiving this year, so I didn't build my menu around utilizing left overs as I would have, however Monday's Pot Pie one could subsitute turkey for chicken.  

I did base my menu on what was available on *my pantry/freezer inventory sheet, with that list I came up with 3 soups for this week's supper. Funny how the cooler weather brings out the most frugal and flavorful meals...

*To help my family stay on budget and prevent my freezer items from getting freeze burnt I make a spread sheet so I can inventory the contents of both my freezer and non-perishable pantry stables. This simple step also helps simplify meal planning & grocery shopping lists for the week ahead. The KEY is to remember to mark off what has been used and add new items as they are purchased.
