Menu Plan Monday: Dinner from the pantry
This week's menu plan has gone through several permutations. The menu plan that was percolating in my head over the weekend has changed due to an unexpected budget crunch that has left me digging through the pantry, so this plan is still rough around the edges! Here goes:
Monday: Homemade pepperoni pizza and garlic toast
Tuesday: Meatloaf and this purslane recipe (more on purslane when I'm not in a rush! Let's just say I was amazed.)
Wednesday: Hubs is cooking!
Thursday: Miso soup or Avgolemono (thanks, Siempre!). This one's going to depend on my mood and the level of birthday leftovers. :-)
That's it for this week. In honor of my younger sister, I'll be sharing some frugal meal ideas that (mostly!) don't involve beans, although next week I might have to bust into my supply! Tell me, what are your "go to" pantry recipes when your grocery shopping budget takes an unexpected hit?
