What We're Eating This Week

this week is what I call a "pantry week," because we're eating mostly out of the pantry and using up odds and ends of things. Here's what we're eating:

  • Scrambled Eggs
    • spinach, shredded zucchini and parmesan mixed in. Little Miss will eat anything in eggs with cheese and this is a good way to get some extra veggies. I make a triple batch and reheat for quick lunches for her.
  • Beans and cornbread
    • served with homemade nectarine pickles that have been chilling in the fridge for a few weeks
  • Pasta (double batch)
    • jarred sauce enhanced with shredded zucchini and parmesan leftover in the fridge and some ground beef from the freezer
  • Banana Bread
    • when Little Miss called me out on the black bananas, I figured it was time to do something about it
  • Peanut Butter
    • my favorite lunch (pantry week or not) is peanut butter and honey sandwiches and potato chips. doesn't get much simpler or yummier than that.
So, it's not too exciting, but sometimes saving money trumps exotic menus.
