Menu Plan Monday: Pantry Challenge Week 3

As we head into Week 3 of the Pantry Challenge, I'm excited about how well we've stuck with our plan! I've only gotten off track twice. Once was due to my parents treating us to dinner out (Thanks, Mom & Dad!) and once due to me forgetting to defrost some meat. OOPS! Overall, it's been a huge success. Here's what's on the menu for this week.

Beef Vegetable Barley Soup

Southwest Chicken Wraps
This is simply a mixture of cooked/diced chicken, refried beans, salsa, and cheese in a tortilla wrap. They're baked until slightly golden.

Homemade Pizza


Crock Pot Bean Soup
Cornbread or Homemade Bread (whatever strikes us!)

Stuffed Pepper Casserole

Our small group is meeting, so I'll be making something for my parents and Emma. I'm thinking about making them some of the Crock Pot Black Bean Soup that I made last week. Or I might just leave them some of the Progresso Tomato Basil Soup that my dad likes (and that's already in my pantry!) and ask my mom to make some grilled cheese to go with it. We'll see what we're all in the mood for.
