Menu Plan Monday – Pantry Staples Week

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on October 3, 2010

It’s time to make a small (hopefully large) dent into what we’ve got in the pantry.  I’m hoping to clear some space for the holiday stockpiling that will soon be upon us!  (Remember, Thanksgiving is the “most couponable” holiday…so get ready to clip extra coupons and really save!)

Le Plan…

Monday - Slow Cooker Coconut Chicken

Tuesday – Janet’s Pasta with Bolognese

Wednesday – Chicken Enchilada Chili

Thursday – Jamie’s Cajun Meatball Stew

Friday – Chorizo and Black Bean Soup

Saturday – Grill (if it’s warm enough!)

Sunday - Church Meeting and Dinner Out

I will post the recipes each night after I make the meal. If you see a meal you are interested in, please check back for the recipe later in the week!

I am so intrigued with the enchilada chili idea, do you have a recipe or is it a method? I love enchiladas and I make an enchilada soup, although I seem to make it slightly different each time I make it. It is a great winter soup and makes quite a bit of soup, so I usually freeze some of the leftover soup for lunches.
