I took a bit of an inventory this past weekend to see what my parents already have. It took a bit to get used to how much food was readily available since we tend to literally store only what we need for the week plus whatever is on our list of "staple" items (i.e. flour, spices, coco, oil)
In 2 weeks or so we'll be moving into another place because my parents have sold their house as well. So, another chance to use up food items :). But, this time were we are heading is only 10 minutes away, so it is possible to transport food. Having said that, my parents have a large deep freezer in their garage that has some great food it in. We won't have that storage at the place we'll be for the summer, so we are still cooking off of what they have.
Okay, so meal plan for the week...
Breakfasts - Piece of fruit or smoothie, eggs & toast or cereal, coffee, juice
Lunches - Bread & peanut butter, fruit, pita and hummus, veggies, noodles & cheese, leftovers
Snacks - popcorn, fruit
Monday - Had dinner with friends (we only contributed fruit)
Tuesday - Hamburgers on the grill, salad, and fruit
Wednesday - Chicken Tacos with cheese sauce and refried beans
Thursday - Stir fry
Friday - Some kind of pasta (either with vodka marinara sauce or alfredo, probably with brocolli, onion, and chicken or shrimp)
Saturday - Roast with veggies
Sunday - Leftovers
This weeks' shopping list - Meijer
- Fruit - strawberries, pineapple, cantalop
- Tortilla Shells
