Weekly Meal Plan with Grocery List #34 (Features Pantry Staples) | Life as MOM

Over on Good Cheap Eats I’m leading the Pantry Challenge brigade. Many families are banding together to use up what they have in these first two weeks of January in order to save money, rotate stock, and practice some good old fashioned “make-do” tactics.

It seemed only appropriate then that this week’s meal plan feature pantry staple ingredients. If you’ve got what I consider basic whole ingredients on hand like beans, rice, eggs, flour, pasta, and some meat and veg, then you’re good to go. These recipes are on the flexible side allowing you to mix and match or substitute whatever “randomness” you have in the freezer or fridge.

All are easy to prep and kid-friendly.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
