Pantry Challenge – Week 2

Monday dinner: leftover roast chicken, random grabs – Monday evening we have ballet, so often we grab something to munch on our way out the door, I provided the roast chicken, but everything else was up for grabs.

Monday was hard. I spoke with Turbo Tax and Bank of America. Found out I really do owe $1000 to the IRS for money that was juggled during our Home Affordable refinance in 2013. I didn’t notice the line item on my 1098 in 2014. So frustrating, first I get a credit card paid off, and now I have another debt to add. And after much discussion with the kids we decided we are not taking the summer ballet class. I spoke with the ballet director and had to say no to summer ballet, no to boy child helping in hip-hop class this summer, and no to helping the set and design for the mini-ballet event this month. I have a very hard time saying no. Especially when I really want to stay involved in ballet and the usual involved moms are also not helping.

Tuesday dinner: Tomato soup, potato salad, pickles, chicken cookies

Wednesday dinner: Breakfast links, farro grain, and asparagus

Thursday dinner: Pork roast and garlic bread (made by the husband while I was at meetings)

Friday dinner: Whole wheat focaccia, bacon, and red sauce

Saturday dinner: Corn bread and bbq chicken

Sunday dinner: Baked fish and onion buns

2 weeks complete and we have not needed any groceries. I think I will need to pick up a few staples this week. What do I consider to be a staple? Peanut butter, flour, coffee.
