I'm partly following a pantry challenge for the month, but am slightly low on some things because every year I do a mostly eat from the pantry month in December. Mainly because the last place I want to be in December is the store. I worked retail for many, many, many years and got my fill of Christmas shopper crazy on me. Or maybe it was just a couple of years but felt like a lifetime. So while I'm still mainly doing pantry eating, I do have a budget of no more than $50 a week to add to what I have already.
Monday...ate at McDonald's (this was planned...the kids all had gift cards they got for Christmas...dinner was on them!)
Tuesday...Roast chicken with roasted potatoes and carrots, tossed salad, and yeast rolls
Thursday....Leftover chicken, steamed broccoli, rice
Friday...Spaghetti, salad, garlic bread
Saturday....Grilled cheese and tomato soup
Sunday....Pancakes, sausage, fresh fruit
Lunches will be leftovers or sandwiches (it's usually just me and my 4 year old during the week), breakfast is cereal, eggs, or oatmeal. Snacks are fruit, popcorn, cheese and crackers, toast, yogurt.
