“Shopping From My Cupboard” Menu For the Week

. at . 4 comments

  1. Vegetable QuicheI made this Saturday for Sunday and have enough leftovers for today. It’s been a long time (decades even) since I’ve made a quiche. I forgot how easy and tasty it is to make. I sauted about 2 cups of veggies (celery, onions, thinly sliced carrots, zucchini) with 15 hash browns and put it in the bottom of my partially baked pie crust and topped it with 2 cups cheese. I blenderized 1 cup of frozen corn, 2 handfuls of spinach leaves, 4 eggs and 1.5 cups cream. I put this in the plate and then covered it all with another crust. The blenderized spinach gave it a nice green colour and no “leaves in the teeth” look.
  2. Vegetarian Chili over Brown RiceIsn’t chili the easiest meal ever? Just open cans of 2 types of beans, tomatoes and corn. Mix all with chili seasoning pack. I have some zucchini and carrots in the fridge, so I’ll probably put those in with some diced onion. Yummy, easy and fast.
  3. Pasta with Creamy Broccoli and Tuna (aka Tuna Helper) – Doesn’t the fancy name make it seem like it’ll taste better?
  4. Mushroom-Filled Tortellini with Roasted Garlic and Onion Pasta Sauce – My sista gave me these delicious dry noodles. I am looking forward to this meal.
  5. Homemade Cheese and Vegetable Pizza– Well really the crust is one of those mixes from Betty Crocker where you add water. My taste buds like it though. 🙂

There is plenty of food here for the other two nights and/or lunch.

I am trying to clean out the pantry and this week’s menu is doing just that. What meal can you make with ingredients just from your pantry?

    Since hubby went shopping over a week ago we are well stocked until we go on vacation in 2 weeks. He stocked us up quite well!
    I have salmon, catfish, roast & chicken in the freezer. Still plenty of fresh & frozen fruits/vegetables. Now I just have to think of meals for the week.
    Good Eats!
