Pantry Challenge WEEK! Nearly FREE Meal Plan! 11-24-30,2014

Getting caught up on some bills this week along with the MRI for my son, 2 Thanksgiving Dinners, plus a family wedding out of state BUSY!! Not sure how I will squeeze in the grocery store for perishables and ingredients I will need to make the side dishes & desserts to both dinners.

Luckily I scored at the grocery store a while ago and stocked up on a variety of baked goods (TRY FREE!), seasoning mixes (try .10 each!! Yep! nearly FREE!) as well as Cod and boneless skinless chicken breast. So We will be eating out of our food storage mostly this week, that is the dry goods & freezer. I am nearly depleted of meat, so what I save this week I am going to have to save for next week. 

Taco Cups from our Lunch Time Offerings!

HOPEFULLY we will have some turkey left overs to sustain us next week! Hoping for the carcass so I can make turkey and barley soup, turkey pot pie, and possibly turkey hash with all the rest of the goodies!!
