Happy New Year!

It's a new year and that means it's time for change and goals. Here's what I worked on today!

January is my month of pantry/freezer cleanout. I'm trying to minimize our grocery budget this month and make the best use of our current stock of food. Here's what's on the menu the month or two:
  • Chicken enchiladas x 2
  • Cranberry chicken with sweet potatoes
  • Sweet pea manicotti
  • Turkey pot pie
  • Beef bourguinon
  • Turkey and stuffing casserole
  • Turkey tacos
  • Rotisserie chicken
  • French dip sandwiches
  • Beef barbeque
  • Chipotle lime pork tacos
  • Breakfast taquitos
  • Fruit smoothies
  • Creamy turkey taquitos
  • Spinach salad with chicken
  • Hummus
  • Creamy tomato soup
  • Ham and beans
  • Turkey tetrazinni
  • Lasagna
  • Pizza casserole
  • Smoky corn chowder
  • Bacon-wrapped pork filets
  • Banana bread
My goal is to purchase only the few items I need to make these recipes plus the basics like milk, eggs, bread, and lunch meat.  I'm hoping to lighten our pantry and freezer for a new round of freezer cooking!
