Day 1

Well here we are again, back at day one.

The Grocery List:

2 canned meats – Tuna and Chicken
1 bag of rice
1 bag of pinto beans
1 bag of pasta
2 small cans of tomato paste or sauce
2 cans of vegetables – Mixed Veggies and Carrots
2 cans of fruit – Pineapple and Pears
1 can of salted peanuts
1 box of crackers
1 box of granola bars

Peanut butter
Soup – cream of broccoli
Trail mix
Refried beans
Dried Fruit - Apples

The Rules:
The rules are the same but a few things have changed. Last time we prepared three dishes using our Food Pak and relied on leftovers to feed us for a week. This time around we are only cooking what we need. Each meal will be enough for that meal with maybe an extra serving for later. It becomes more of a challenge trying to come up with 10 meals out of the box instead of 3. We are sure that some of them will be similar but this helps us set our portions.

Today's Menu:

Trail Mix

Broccoli Tuna Casserole
Two servings of Pasta
Half a can of cream of broccoli
Two servings of Tuna

Chicken and Rice
Two servings of Rice
One and a half servings of mix veggies
Two servings of Chicken

Not too bad for the first day. :)
