Menu Plan: Countdown to Moving Day

Three weeks until the movers come and we have managed to clear out our extra fridge in the garage. My pantry is still pretty full, but I hope to make some progress on it over the next two weeks. We still have lots of boxes of pasta, jars of sauce, and crackers. If pasta dishes dominate the menu over the next few weeks it is because that is what I have the most of in my pantry.

I also have lots of grain and oats in my basement storage that I would like to use up over the next few weeks. I’ll be taking them with me in the car, but I would love to have less to lug around! I’m thankful for the cooler temperatures so I can start baking more often and using up some of that grain!

  1. Ugh…it seems like you just finished moving about 5 minutes ago! I hope the new place is fabulous!

  2. So Where are you moving to?

  3. LOL pasta and grains dominate our pantry, too! Especially after a couple BOGO pasta sales (with coupons) the last two weeks, ahem. Happy moving countdown!

  4. Have a great move…we will be doing this same thing in the next 2 months. Using what we have and only buying what we have to in prep for our move right after the holidays.

  5. Have a great move! We just moved into our new home 5 days ago. I cleared out our pantry and freezers before the move and am really missing my stockpile. It’s going to take some time to get it back to where it was a few months ago.

    Great menu plan!

  6. I just moved to KY from Fl. I am still trying to rebuild my pantry, we cleared ours out before we moved and now I find it hard to whip things up cause it is not already in my pantry. I cant go buy it all at once, budget and all. So I have to build it up gain slowly.

  8. That is funny, your moving to FL… and i’m getting ready to move out of FL. We are moving to ME in 6 days!

  9. Hey there,
