Menu Review (Tuesday?)

We had another good week eating out of the pantry this past week! Here is what we actually ate (I drew up the month long menu plan, but we deviate once in a while):

1/11: For breakfast we had cereal and bananas, lunch was Black Beans and Rice. Dinner was Chicken Breasts with stuffing, corn, and peas.

1/12: Breakfast was eggs and toast, lunch was mini-farfalle with broccoli, butter, and Parmesan cheese. Dinner was Chicken Enchilada Casserole (made with cooked turkey) with rice. We also made a batch of brownies.

1/13: Breakfast was cereal, Lunch was leftover Black Beans and Rice. I made pork chops, with mashed potatoes and corn.

1/14: We did eggs for breakfast (at the toddler's request), lunch was sandwiches and veggies for dipping. We had another toddler and her mommy over to make Cinnamon Raisin Bread (recipe from Martha Stewart- needs improving on) in the afternoon and I forgot all about meatballs. So, I went into default mode and made tostadas (the reason for my "spendy" can o'beans last week).

1/15: None of us were feeling great, so breakfast was cereal & Cinnamon Raisin Bread, lunch was soup from a can, and the husband picked up pizza for dinner.

1/16: Cereal and Cinnamon Raisin Bread for breakfast, hamburgers for lunch. We ate a yummy dinner at my MIL's house.

1/17: Breakfast was oatmeal, lunch was tuna sandwiches with chips (for grownups) and carrots (for toddler). We ate dinner over at a friends house (Thanksgiving style!).

1/18: We had a late breakfast of French Toast and eggs. We had a very early dinner of Meatloaf with hashbrown casserole and brussels sprouts. Then we ate Mini Delights with strawberries and a small scoop of ice cream for dessert.
