Menu Plan Monday: The "Making It Last Until The End Of The Month" Edition!

It's the end of the month and I'm out of grocery money. So I'm making do with what we have on hand and planning the whole week's menu from that!

No worries though, we have enough food that  we won't be going hungry! We're a bit low on the veggies and fresh fruit, so we'll be eating up what we do have in stock and then getting a fresh supply next week!

The fruits and veggies we do have are:
small amount of fresh spinach
half bag of frozen corn
half bag of frozen broccoli
2 baggies of frozen shredded zucchini
frozen blueberries
frozen bananas
frozen cranberries
canned pineapple
canned mandarin oranges

We'll be eating applesauce and a few smoothies for our fruit this week and then polishing off most of the veggies, too. Lots of carrot sticks coming up!

Anyone have a good pita bread recipe? I'm planning to make a batch of pita bread this week.

I'm just doing some blog visiting and watching or I should say listening to Judge Judy.

I love MPM! I get lots of inspiration from the various participants. It definitely helps us from getting bored.
You have a yummy meal plan.
