Food Experiment

I try to be good about planning menus and shopping the sales, but I definitely have the bad habit of forgetting what we have in the pantry and freezer.

So as a fun experiment, I'm going to try and only use what we have in the house until we get cleaned out a bit. I'm thinking I'll have to buy milk, and one treat thing for each of us. Anna and I want caramel for our apples, and Matthew's getting frozen pizza. I'm also going to get a couple of cans of chicken noodle soup, just in case someone gets sick.

Our menu for this week: (Not weird at all yet)

Thursday: Spaghetti and Salad
Friday: Casserole from the freezer
Saturday: Home Group
Sunday: Farm
Monday: Brats with kraut and Fries

I'll let you know how it goes.

Cindy's Porch has some ideas and printables that might help. She's big on the "shop at home first" idea

I've had to do this a couple of times over the last few months. Your menu looks good. We had a couple of weird ones but our freezer and shelves were a little more manageable.

Thanks girls. It's good to know I'm not the only one. :)
