Menu Plan

I’ve been experimenting with a lot of new recipes lately. I can’t wait to share them with you in February! This month we are trying to eat from our pantry to save money. it is amazing how much you can save on your grocery bill when you actually eat the food you already have.

Sometimes that means some creative meals, like our dinner last night of homemade macaroni and cheese, split pea soup, cheddar roles, and broccoli, but the kids loved it and we used up a lot of food in the pantry and fridge.

Recipes coming soon: Split pea soup and chili.
