Menu Plan – Freezer/pantry cleanout

It snowed! In the southeast!  What a nice Valentine’s day weekend treat – put a bit of a damper in my husband’s plan for a romantic weekend getaway, but fortunately we were able to reschedule without penalty. And since I’m stuck in the house, I had a little time to do some menu planning!

January was an expensive month for the S household (car repairs, electric bill through the roof due to a cold snap, the list goes on) – so I am taking stock of what I have the pantry/freezer and planning from there. I did a little search over at food blog to come up with new ideas. I will report back on how they turn out!

  1. I’m always on the lookout for yummy menu choices. We’re still having to watch our pennies.
    Lots of snow. Hopefully you’ll miss this week’s snow storm.
