Menu Plan Monday: Eat From the Pantry Challenge Week 1

This is the first week of the Eat From the Pantry Challenge, and I'm a little behind. Between traveling and getting caught up on laundry, putting away gifts, and unpacking suitcases, the only pantry inventory I've completed is the extra canned goods area. (Fortunately, it's still looking good!)

I really wanted to tackle the freezer this weekend. Looks like that's going to be a job for Monday evening. I did buy 2 bins for my frozen veggies and shredded zucchini today... Does that count toward my organization points?

That said, I'm not totally sure what this week's menu plan will truly hold. My goal was to de-clutter the freezer this week. I have tons of frozen veggies, and I'm pretty sure that some of them are perfect mixes for making soup. Considering the fact that the thermometer on our truck said SIX DEGREES this morning when we left for church, soup is sounding pretty good!!

The only meal I know I can commit to is homemade pizza Monday evening. Other than that, it all depends on what my freezer expedition uncovers! I'll keep you posted.

Are you cleaning out your pantry? Freezer? Have you uncovered any gems that will make for yummy meals?
