I have to make room in my (already slim) budget to do Christmas dinner (nothing extreme, just a little fancier than usual), so I've goaled myself to not spend ANY money for groceries between now and 23 December, when I will go and buy the few perishables I need for Christmas.
Anyone care to join me in cooking just with what we already have on hand in our cupboards?
MENU (I'll be updating it as I plan it...)
8 December: spaghetti, green salad, Jell-O
9 December: tofu and broccoli stirfry with peanut sauce over rice
10 December: turkey potpie, roasted baby potatoes, pumpkin muffins
11 December: stuffed bell peppers, green beans
15 December: West-Mex potpie with cornbread topping, Spanish rice
16 December: pasta panna rosa, broccoli
18 December: Dinner out at a local restaurant (with a giftcard) for my daughter's birthday
23 December: turkey noodle soup, rolls
25 December: pumpkin cinnamon rolls, shrimp cocktail, turkey enchiladas, Spanish rice, refried beans, corn, cherry turnovers, cheesecake petit fours
31 December: baked potato soup, biscuits
