Menu Plan: Clean Out the Pantry Edition

We found last month that we would be moving back to Maryland early next year. Given the cruddy Florida real estate market we decided to put our house on the market sooner rather than later to give it time to sell.

Wouldn’t you know he had a contract on the house in less than a week? Now we have about a month to eat through the pantry and freezer before we pack up and go. To be honest, I’m not a huge fan of this challenge. Usually many of the things in the pantry are items that weren’t a big hit the first time around. Thankfully, most of the food in my freezer is meat, so my kids will be thrilled to be eating more meat and less pasta!
