The Eating from the Pantry Challenge is still going strong around here. Darin even said he hasn't noticed a difference. If anything he probably likes it better since I am more likely to cook rice. I tried the Fried Rice from the BHG cookbook (you know the one with the red checks) and it is definitely a keeper. I had some thawed out pork roast left from the Green Chili I made so I cooked that up with it to make it a meal in one. That cookbook is quickly becoming my favorite and I'm not entirely sure why I haven't turned to it more often. We also got invited to peoples house for dinner twice so that was two less meals I had to make. Yay! Tonight I am excited to try out the Bisquick chicken tenders and we are going to have some sweet potato fries and applesauce. Here's some other stuff I'm thinking about having this week...
-Enchiladas (and a quesadilla for Ivy)
-Twice Baked Potatoes
-Salmon and Rice
-Breakfast for dinner
-And pulling a turkey out of the freezer that I stocked up on during the holidays.
We are on our last box of cereal so we have been having some fun breakfasts also. I made English Muffin Bread for toast and blueberry muffins. I stocked the freezer with blueberries this summer. There is an awesome organic blueberry farm a few miles down the road that is U-Pick. It was one of our favorite things to do. I think they probably should have weighed Ivy before and after though. I'm sure she ate about a pound of blueberries every time we went! The only thing we'll have to get this week is bananas and maybe some more grapefruit.
