Pantry Challenge. With the end of February, this year's pantry challenge is complete but I have really enjoyed having a basic menu plan to guide me. This year I decided to continue to make a month long menu, and be intentional about using garden produce and preserves from last season.
I am now on my sixth consecutive month of making a menu and I'm
loving it! I am also finding that it only takes me 15-20 min to put
together a new menu for the month unless I get stuck thinking of
something new to add. ;) Be encouraged if you are new to menu planning
that it does get quicker and easier with time.
If you are interested in joining my intentional menu planning, check out my Pantry Challenge post
to get an idea of how to get started.
Here is what is on our menu this week...
Cheesy Ham & Potato Bake (freezer meal) uses the last of our homemade hash browns
Smoked Pulled Pork - thanks to some friends with a smoker! :)
tacos - still waiting for my lettuce & spinach to be big enough to harvest... hopefully soon!
Oatmeal Pumpkin or Squash Cookies - made a batch last week & we are still enjoying them
fresh fruit & veggies
Happy Garden Eating! :)
