Use What You’ve Got Meal Plan

In case you missed it, I decided to start a #useitallup challenge. The idea is to use up what you have at home instead of buying something new that might be similar to what you already have. Part of this challenge is about using up products such as makeup, soaps, etc. But another part of the challenge is to use up the food we have in our pantries and in our freezer. So I thought it would be great to share a meal plan titled Use What You’ve Got!

Leftover Meal Plan

As a side note, we did not stick to last week’s No Spend Meal Plan. We were initially going to make some of the meals listed below in the previous week, but instead had Shrimp Pad Thai (for which we needed to buy 1 ingredient) and Fish Tacos.
