Menu Plan for the Week 11/20 – 11/26 | Eating from the pantry/freezer

How last week’s menu went:

Well, I had a few changes to last week’s menu. I didn’t make the Hamburger Vegetable Soup or the Spinach Stuffed Shells, so I’m bumping both to this week. One night we had a leftover night, and I can’t remember what we did the other night – maybe it was another leftover night?

Once again, I didn’t get the Autumn Sausage Casserole in the crock pot in time, so I made it like the original recipe instead. Also, I used a different kind of sausage (roasted red pepper and garlic chicken sausage) and I have to say that I much prefer it with the apple chicken sausage that I usually use.

Spinach and Bacon Quiche

Favorite meal from last week:

I’m picking the Spinach and Bacon Quiche (I used less bacon). I love that the recipe uses fresh spinach and I love the consistancy of the egg mixture. All five of us enjoy this, and the leftovers are great for lunch.

This Week’s Menu Plan

I’m trying to eat from the pantry/freezer this week to save money and force myself to use the food that is already in the house!


  • Beans and Franks – leftover hot dogs, canned baked beans, molassas, brown sugar, ketchup, minced onion, hot sauce
  • Mixed veggies




Thursday – Happy Thanksgiving!

  • We’ll have Thanksgiving  dinner at my parents’ house. I’m bringing something – maybe yams and/or pies
  • I know we are also having: Turkey, stuffing, gravy, corn casserole, Swedish flat bread, salad (and there may be more…)



  • Leftovers

Other Updates

  • I’m excited that the kids have no school all week!
  • The yard sale report really is coming this week!

I’m linking up with OrgJunkie’s Menu Plan Monday, where you can find many more meal plans to check out!

  1. I loved seeing Swedish flatbread on the menu. I have great memories of making it with my mom. I should continue the tradition!

  2. You should post the recipe for the Swedish Flatbread here!
