Well I am where it is right before check day at the beginning of the week so you will see some menus that have me digging into my food storage pantry. I think digging into food storage should be part of our routine. So what ingredients are from the pantry: TVP, oatmeal, Kraft dinner, peanut butter, tuna,dried mango, pasta, pasta sauce and Kool Aid. These are all things that do get used on a regular basis here in this house so it was important to have them as part of my food storage.
The oatmeal will be used for breakfasts along with the Rice Krispies and Cheerios that are already in the cupboard. So will the PB for toast.
Kool Aid will be for an afterschool drink with Roo taking water for her lunches. Her lunches this week are a pizza lunch that the class won, chicken noodle soup, mini ravoli, ham and cheese sandwich and a grilled cheese. These will have some fresh fruit or dried mango added to them.
