I have got to get back into menu planning! I did really well with it last year but I let it get away from me at the end, as usual, and I have an overflowing freezer and pantry to show for it.
I took the time to inventory the deep freeze and large pantry this weekend since I had no idea what was in there and it's time for a serious pantry challenge!
I will be only picking up fresh fruits/veggies, dairy and the occasional can of tomatoes or cream of something soup for the next month.
Meals listed are in no particular order except the suppers. The breakfasts, lunches and snacks will be eaten multiple times per week. I have also decided that Blue Girl needs to take a Bento lunch to school at least 3x per week for the next couple of weeks. Shhh... I haven't told her that yet. ;)
I will post recipes with Weight Watchers points+ for some meals, others I will come back and post points+ as I figure them out.
