Menu Plan Monday- Week of February 1, 2010

Well, the eat from your pantry challenge is Finally was tough, but we made it through..with only a few slip ups here and there.

Some major winners from last week were the Braised Bok Choy- DELICIOUS! and the Teryaki Steak was so good....highly recommend. The two recipes went together perfectly.

The Magic Mango Bread came out well too. Next time, I would chop my Mango's smaller.

This week, I am going to try to use up some of my spices because they have been in my pantry for a while. So I am going to use the ingredients search on (one of my favorite menu plan tools) and find some recipes that will help me use my veggies and my spices...can it be done? Let's see...

The Dip-
This dip is AWESOME....really unhealthy but soooo good:

1 Can Hormel No Bean Chili
1 Block of Cream Cheese
1 Cup of Cheddar Cheese

In a 9x9 baking dish, spread cream cheese on bottom, then chili and cover with cheese. Bake in the oven at 350 for 10 min or until cheese is melted. Enjoy! I usually serve them with tortilla chips. The scoops work really well.

  1. That dip seems too easy! I always use velveeta to make queso (which is pricey and not so good for you). While this isn't the healthiest dip, it seems more cost effective! And, it's good splurge here and there. :)

  2. Oh, the produce sounds wonderful! Wish we had somethinglike that around here!
    Thanks for sharing the recipes too! i will have to check them out!
    God bless!

  3. Wish we had that produce deal available here!

  4. I like your planning for the week it does make it easier. I'm a new Friday Follow hope to see you soon
