Pantry Challenge: Week #1 Shopping Trip & Meal Plan

by Sally on October 28, 2012

It’s the first day of the Autumn Pantry Challenge! Today, I made trips to Aldi and my neighborhood supermarket and spent only $32 on groceries for the week (my weekly budget is $50 or less).

Week One Meal Plan

Sunday: Beef Barley Soup, Homemade Oatmeal Yogurt Rolls, Salads

Monday: Leftovers

Tuesday: Cod from freezer, Whole Wheat Egg Noodles, Roasted Broccoli

Wednesday: Halloween! Homemade Mac-n-Cheese or PBJs before trick-or-treating

Thursday: Baked Chicken, Butternut Squash Au Gratin, Salads

Friday: Lentil & Rice Casserole, Sauteed Carrots w/ Butter & Brown Sugar

Saturday: Homemade Pizza (plain cheese for kids, farmer’s market sausage for grown-ups), Salads

This week’s cliffhangers:

  • Will I have to spend the remaining $18 of my weekly budget?
  • Will Hurricane Sandy wreak havoc on our lives, wipe out my big freezer stash of food, and render the Pantry Challenge null and void?

Let me know how your shopping trip went–and tell me about your meal plan for the week!
