Ok Ladies... let's see how we can do this month...

Rules: only buy perishables: milk, eggs, veggies, fruit, etc. Meat if you need to, but see if you have any in your freezer first! (snack foods are not perishables- can we live w/o them? )

Exception: Thanksgiving dinner... for those of us who have to cook, let's set a Thanksgiving budget and stick too it! The only thing I have for it is a can of YAMS (ew!) and evaporated milk for pumpkin pie.

Anyone have ideas for extra evaporated milk? Grandma gets government commodities and gives us everything-- so there is alot of canned milk.

Since it's not quite the first of the month yet, I think I will go through my pantry and come up w/ a menu plan. I used to plan them out a month at a time-- which helped tremendously on budgeting (!) but I have slacked off now since we bought this house in May...

Let us know if you have odd & end foods left-- maybe some of us will have some recipes that will use them up!

I so need to stay out of the Supermarket!! I do fine if I just go on my own, but if I bring my children, it's a nightmare!

I have set a grocery budget for the month of November of $100, $50 of which are for Thanksgiving. (Trust me, no one will starve. My kitchen is so full of food right now, that I can't fit anything else in the deepfreeze, and I'm storing potatoes and squash in the garage.)

As for tinned milk, you can use it in soups and chowders. (Tomatoe soup, pumpkin soup, clam chowder, potato chowder...Go to www.allrecipes.com, and do an ingrediant search for evaporated milk.)

ETA: rachelagain, where in Montana are you? from Missoula.

I'm going to join this month, my pantry is overflowing! I should even have enough meat to get by. I'm going to take an inventory in the next few days and then try to make a meal plan for the month. The only thing I know I'm low on that we use a lot of is spaghetti sauce. I will probably run out to get that today or tomorrow.

YEA! we're in this together!
I don't know if I can get by w/ $100-- I was thinking $50 for Thanksgiving (if I have to cook), but then that would only leave $50 and I'm pg. and want to eat plenty of fresh fruit and veggies... plus milk and eggs.
So I think I'll set it for $150- w/ $50 of that for Thanksgiving.

Kathirynne- I'm in Billings. I was down in Missoula earlier this month, seems like a nice town!

Rachel - I don't know if you are a tea drinker or not, but when it's cold, I use the evaporated milk to make chai. Ditto the PP on using it in soups. If you have a cream soup that calls for half and half, you can almost always substitute evaporated milk (bonus is its more calcium and less calories and fat). It's kind of the wrong time of year for this, but for future reference when peaches are in season I will slice some up in a bowl, cover them with evaporated milk, let them sit overnight, and in the morning we have peaches and cream either by itself, over oatmeal, or over cereal. There are also lots of homemade ice cream recipes that use evaporated milk. Hmmm, I think I'll go make some chai

Wow! You ladies are brave to do a pantry challenge over Thanksgiving. I'm in, but Friday I'm going to the meat market -- I only go every 4 months or so and stock up. This trip is to get some chicken breast, a Thanksgiving turkey, wingettes (for making teriyaki chicken wings for the super bowl party), and probably enough ground turkey and hamburger to last for about 6 months. I'll probably spend $150 -- $200 on all of that. At the same time, I'm going to stop at the bread outlet next door and stock up on bread. That'll be another $10 - $15. Aside from these two big trips, which were already planned, I'm going to see if I can do $100 this month, including Thanksgiving. This is going to be a huge deal for me because I don't always pay as close attention as I should to the food bill.

Does anyone have any ideas for canned yellow tomatoes? I have a bunch that I got on clearance for $0.15 per can and now I don't know what to do with them...

I'm in! Our grocery budget is out of control and my cupboards are overflowing!

I talked to Dh this morning (he's the main grocery store offender) and he's on board as well. I think I can probably get through the majority of this month. My MIL is doing Thanksgiving and I'm only responsible for bringing two desserts.

We're in. We've had to borrow $1500 from our savings account and have only paid back $900. So we really need to put that money into savings.

I have no meat on hand so I'll probably have to buy some at some point or face a DH revolt!

I would also like to use up the last of the conventional goods in my pantry - canned and dry and this gives me an excellent excuse to get them gone!

I'm trying to tackle some of the odds and ends in the pantry.

Among the odds: a huge jar of artichoke tapenade that I picked up at Costco. I guess I'll be having lots of pasta. I think it might work on some french bread too. Maybe in a sandwich with cheese and sliced veggies.

It's tasty now, but I'm going to be sick of it by the time it's gone.

New to this forum, but I am soooo in. My pantry is pretty full and I'm trying to evaluate what to keep it stocked with and how much. A pantry challenge will sure help with figuring that out.

And I just made about five gallons of chicken soup for the freezer so I'm totally set there too.

Here is the list of the enormous amount of food I am storing right now. I'm glad this thread came along, I really need to use up and replace.

I think I will have to make 3 posts, one for fridge, one for freezer and one for pantry.

Fridge:
1.5 gallons milk
1 gallon of orange juice
8 yogurts gone
3 greek yogurts gone
14 eggsgone
cream cheesegone
strawberries
cabbage
mushrooms[COLOR="red"][gone/COLOR]
apples
oranges
green peppers
red peppers
cucumber
tomatoes
carrotsgone
bread
4.5 chicken defrostinggone

I'm putting the chicken in the crock pot tonight to cook with some carrots, potatoes and onions. I will make dinner from it tomorrow then use the rest to make chicken noodle soup for my family that is coming up from Florida for the weekend. The weather here is going to shock them and I think some homemade soup will help!

I would just use them the same as regular canned tomatoes-- though if you make a sauce, it's won't be a red sauce- but that sounds kind of fun!

Goulash, spaghetti, stew, etc.

so if I can use canned milk in place of 1/2 & 1/2 do you think it would taste ok in a alfredo sauce? I just use 1/2 & 1/2 w/ parmesan cheese & onion and garlic powder...?

I'm in...this is the menu for the month:

1x fajitas (leftover still in the fridge)

2x rice and black bean medley with brocolli bread

4x spaghetti

2x lasagna (one tray = at least two meals with some for leftovers)

4x chicken and veggies (eating the brocolli and carrots in the fridge first then moving to the frozen veggies)

4x Pinto and mac n cheese (if we leave the cheese in the fridge alone I have everything I need to make this)

2x stirfry steak, rice and veggies

3x chicken noodle soup (I have to make it, but I have all the ingredients)

1x tomato soup and sandwiches

1x minestrone soup (canned - in the freezer though) and sandwiches

3x jambalya (with the metts in the freezer and chicken and rice and veggies

That does not address thanksgiving dinner. But I plan to make a menu and stick to that...probably turkey, potatoes, sweet potatoes, herb and cheese bubble loaf (yum), cranberries, green beans, pumpkin pie for dessert.

is canned milk sweetened? if it isn't I think it would work good in any white sauce, alfredo or just a roux for a casserole.

What a good idea, hlkm2e, to post your inventories!
I'll take stock this week-end, and post mine on Monday. I'm counting on the rest of you mummas to give me ideas on what I can make with what I have. I'm going to make my inventory lists and meal plans, and then pretend that there is no supermarket! (Think Little House on the Prairie... )

I just realized that if I stick to this and stay in my $100/grocery budget (if I don't cook Thanksgiving dinner) then I will have $150 in Christmas money! Wouldn't that be great!

Oh- and thanks for the broccoli bread recipe-- sounds yummy, I think I have everything to make it!

I was aghast at my spending for October. I want to do better in November. I'm not cooking Thanksgiving dinner but will be making some pies. I'll be doing an inventory and menu plans at the same time.

Okay, mummas, it's November. Let's inventory those kitchens, make those meal plans, and stick to those grocery budgets.

Can you tell I'm excited about this? It will be good for my family on so many levels.
*It will help me de-clutter my kitchen.
*It will help me stick to my budget.
*It will reduce my stress to have a plan for dinner every night.

(Now if I can just stick to it... )

so... taking inventory, I have 17 cans of evaporated milk. So I guess I'll be trying a few of those cream soups you all are talking about!
Anyone ever use it in custard or pudding?

I have to share though-- I made a meal last night- just throwing stuff together:
1 lb. ground meat
1 can rotel tomatoes
1 can cream corn
1/2 jar salsa
we had it like nachos-- poured over chips w/ shedded cheese. I was bummed we didn't have any sour cream- but didn't run out and buy any, so I did good. It was tasty though-- and a hit w/ everyone.

looks like we'll be eating alot of pastas and brown beans this month though! :-)

Ok-- looking for recipes on line and found a broccoli soup one... First ingredient:

"1(10-oz.) pkg. frozen chopped broccoli, unthawed"

Do you suppose they meant "thawed" or "still frozen"? he he!!

Ohhhh I'm in!!!

Just did a big shop today to stock up and I NEED to get through November spending as little as possible. We are going to Scotland in December for my sister's wedding so I NEED to save money. The only time I plan to spend a little extra money on food is for dd1's birthday party.

Thanks for starting this thread

Oh and Thanksgiving was in October for us so at least I don't have that to worry about.

This sounds like fun to do with a bunch. I did it last month out of sheer necessity and have not stocked up too much but I have:
lots of rice several kinds
lots of noodles ditto
frozen salmon 6 meals worth
refried beans - 3
black, piinto, white and garbanzo beans - 6
cocnut milk, -2
canned and whole pumpkin -2
tuna 3
lamb chops - one package
frozen beans - about 15 pounds
frozen and canned corn lots
frozen peas
frozen blueberries,strawberries, rhubarb and raspberries lots
parmesan cheese
whole tomatoes, paste, prepared sauce lots
thai curry sauce 2
indian curry sauce 3
millet, oats, quinua, buckwheat, cornmeal, lentils lots
squash, potatoes, onions
tortillas lots
pappadam lots
quarts of stock, mostly chicken,
frozen lamb, chicken and a turkey to pick up
baking stuff aplenty
my guilty secret - a half case each of tomato and chicken noodle soup.
eggs


and I haven't looked in the freezer or pantry yet. I feel like my cupboards are bare when I can't feed the family for a month on what is in the house already and I find some of my best creative meals come out at times like this.

SHould be fun to try again this month. Lots of home made soups I think

ok- I sat down and made a menu for the month- but this is minus Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday dinners- Wednesday is DH & my date night- the kids eat PB&J and then go to their church club and we eat out-- that's a different budget for us. Saturdays because it's November and we will be up at my parents going hunting, so we'll eat w/ them, Sunday- because I only ever cook lunch on Sundays and then we eat sandwiches for dinner (it's our hectic day)
(ok- this is just evening meals) but here goes:

Pizza
Chili
beans and rice
steak & potatoes
Cream of Potato soup
Stroganoff
Pizza pockets
homemade mac & cheese
Hamburger roll ups
Noodles & Al Fredo
Steak in sour cream w/ pasta or potatoes
Beirocks
Steak & Potatoes
Stir-fry
Meatloaf
