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

    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

    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.
