Meal Plan: Freezer & Pantry Challenge

I hope y’all don’t tire of freezer and pantry challenges because they sure are a money saver. It is a bit of time investment upfront to assess, to face the freezer and pantry. But this handy inventory print out from Once a Month Mom helps with the planning. Click freezer inventory.

Plus, a freezer and pantry challenge helps me to see just how blessed we already are. Many of these are standard Hodgepodge favorites I’ve built this two week plan around.

Middle girl made Hodgepodgedad’s birthday cake all on her own. She picked out the boxed mix from the cook box, followed the directions. I was just there for supervision and help  :)

And, we’ll be planning some time for Cooking Fun. (Some links lead to our archived site. Still working on pulling recipes over to our new Hodgepodge  :)


  • Oatmeal, grits, cereal, cheese toast, cinnamon toast, fruit and grain bars
  • From batch cooking sessions: whole wheat pancakes, muffins

Snacks/Tea Time:


Fast Food for Slow Sundays: Slow Cooker BBQ chicken, Slow Cooker Spinach Lasagna


*all Hodgepodge meals prepared with care due to our Trials and Triumphs with allergies

How about you? Have you held a pantry and freezer challenge before?

About Hodgepodgemom

Tricia faces a daily dose of chaos homeschooling five children. The biggest lesson she’s learned? At the end of the day – when the dishes are put away and the children are tucked in bed – truly what matters is each child’s relationship with the Lord. Raising children is a God-given privilege and, folks, the time is short.


  1. I never get tired of discovering methods to save time and money, so keep the challenges coming!

    Your daughter did a wonderful job on the cake – now I’m craving lime cake. :)

    BTW, I love the look of your new site.

  2. Trying slow cooker tilapia for first time tonight. Sounds delicious! Will add sides of rice and green veg and will let you know how it goes.

  3. Do let me know Kim! This is definitely my new favorite way to fix fish. Delicious!
