Meals - August 31-September 6

This past week and the next week and a half I'm focusing on foods that I use up items in the pantry/freezer/fridge. Next to each recipe I'll post what pantry item I used. The reason I'm doing this is because we're moving on the 17th and I wanted to use up as much food as I could before we did. I'll be posting more about what the move means for the blog posts next week when I have a better idea myself. For now, here is are the meals we had last week:

Shepherds Pie with juice
Used: canned green beans, hamburger from the freezer (bought on a great sale), a can of tomato soup (don't know why I bought it, I rarely use tomato soup) and potatoes.

Baked Potatoes - don't forget to enter the giveaway for the potato bag. Anyone who enters this giveaway will be able to enter all future giveaways with one extra entry. (That is my little bonus for those of you who were here at the beginning of my blog when my giveaways are small. They will eventually get larger.)
Used: potatoes and frozen broccoli.

Navajo Tacos
Used: dry red beans, flour (I'm also trying to use that up as well!), the last of the hamburger, and a can of chili spiced tomatoes (also don't know why I bought this can of tomatoes, I may have grabbed it by accident - it was the type that you add the hamburger and beans to get chili).

Ready, Vote for which of the two recipes you want to see posted on Wednesday!


  1. I am always amazed at the dishes that can be prepared using only what is available in the pantry. What a great way to use up what is already what is available and save money too!

    Good luck on your move.
