Menu Plan Monday July 25: Pantry Challenge

This week I'm using only recipes I have the ingredients for in my pantry or refrigerator. The amount of food we have is getting a little insane between the garden and the CSA box. So, I'm challenging myself not to buy anything this week for our dinners.

Don't forget to check out Meatless (Vegan) Mondays
Last week's successes:
Last week's failure (if you're looking for a challenge):
Although I liked it, the Chicken Broccoli Skillet was the least exciting of the week.

  1. i dont think i could ever go without meat! im curious to see how you convert meals into vegetarian.

    I'd love if you visited my blog and checked out my Menu Plan/Pantry Challenge Update!
    Have a great week!

  2. LOL I said that exact thing, Christin, about meat... 20+ years ago when I dropped it off my menu. What a new world it opened up! (Healthier, too!) Keep doing what you're doing, Kristi. It's important! --Veggie Val

  3. Thanks Veggie Val, much appreciated. I think it's one of those things you never know how you'll handle until you try. I never thought I could go vegan for weeks either, but it wasn't hard at all once I set my mind to it.
