Eating from the Pantry Challenge

I've been working on a game for our Food Storage Enrichment this week and have got some interesting ideas and recipes and while I was searching the internet for recipes I cam across the Eat from the Pantry Challenge on Money Saving Mom.  Since I've had food storage and pantry food on the brain and hadn't been to the store yet this month I decided to go for it!  Luckily I had been to Costco before I left for Oregon so we have milk in the freezer and all that.  It will also remind me to use all of that stuff I worked so hard to can and freeze in the summer! My goal is to only buy a little dairy (milk, eggs, cheese) and fruits and veggies and to only spend $40 this month!  Yikes but it should be doable with just the 3 of us.  Here is what we are eating this week...
Monday-Chipotle Chocolate Chili leftovers
Tuesday-Pizza rolls, edamame
Wednesday- Ham,rolls, mashed potatoes and corn(from this summer)
Thursday- Breakfast sandwiches with leftover ham, bisquits and egg
Friday- Brown Butter and Basalmic Ravioli. garlic bread and salad
Saturday- Fish and sweet potato fries
Sunday- Green Chili
