The first week has been pretty easy. We already had a lot of groceries on hand. Some of what I used includes the following:
From the freezer I used: a package of pork loins, chicken, pot pies, finished up two already opened boxes of sausages, and the kids used some frozen pizzas.
From the can foods shelf I used - yams to make a sweet potato casserole and corn nibblets.
From the boxed stuff on hand: Kraft mac and cheese, a cake mix, pancake mix, and some boxed cereal.
Snacks: We had homemade brownies and the cake that the Princess made. We were also using up items we had on hand (I think there were some pudding cups and granola bars around.)
Produce: potatoes and eggs.
We bought: bread (must make some!), milk, and canned crushed pineapple (I want to make pineapple scones.)
Next week should be pretty easy too - crunch time will come after the 15th!
