Eating what is on hand for the next week: Day 5
So I think instead of going to the grocery store and buying new groceries, for the next week I am going to see what kind of meals I can come up with from the food that I already have in the house.
This has nothing to do with saving money, but of course that doesn't hurt either.
There was a reason I bought the food I have on hand in the first place, so the goal is to use some of it up and make room for new things. I am also going to see how many recipes I can try or make up for myself!
I was home all day so I actually cooked- and organized the kitchen!
Breakfast- I had apple crisp, and hot tea (bad I know)
Lunch- I made corn fritters- so I used up some canned cream corn and baking ingredients
Dinner- I made pasta, panko breaded chicken, and cranberry sauce- so I used up some pasta, frozen chicken, and cranberry sauce that I've had since thanksgiving
I also just made some people chow/monkey munch- I know it has a bunch of different names and that will be my snack for later.
You can check out the other days here!
