And I am feeling good....
I am actually still short a few cans of tuna and chicken, two jars of salsa and two jars of jam. But that should do it.
Here is the menu my family will be eating if we had to live off what was in our home for the next three months.
|milk||Peanut Butter||White Sauce|
|Day 3||Pancakes||Mac & Cheese||Chili|
|Day 4||Oatmeal/ cereal||Soup||Chicken|
|milk||Flavored Drink||Cream Soup|
|canned fruit||Peanut Butter||Tomatoe Sauce|
|Day 6||Pancakes||Mac & Cheese||Rice|
Snacks Brownies, Cake, Chocolate Chip Cookies, Pudding, Popcorn and Jello
Repeated over and over again week after week.
That is how you can make planning a 3 month supply easy.
Find 7 meals for each mealtime your family likes to eat, figure out what you need for one meal, then multiply it by 13. You don't even have to find seven different meals. You will see that I repeat pancakes for breakfast, and sandwiches for lunch.
Thankfully we don't have to live off what is in our pantry, so they will be served these meals less frequently over the next 6 - 9 months instead.
But it does feel good to be all stocked up and complete again.
