Wish Me Luck

This week I have decided to live seriously pennyless, no more messin' around. Starting tomorrow we are on a spending freeze so meals are strictly coming from staples already on hand in my pantry, refrigerator, and freezer.
Let me give you some history. I have spent a total of $125 since the beginning of October on groceries. Today I ran to the store to get the essentials that we were out of...bread (2 loaves), milk (2-half gallons), cheese, butter, yogurt/"yogrit" as my son calls it, bananas, mixed salad, and turkey dogs per my son's request (well he calls them hot dogs, but doesn't know any different....). This trip ran $30, giving me a grand total of $155 spent in just over a month .
So tomorrow I am going to take an inventory of what's on hand and come up with a menu of the best possible meals based on purely having a stocked kitchen.
You guys have any tips or ideas? Here's what I've got, take a look.....fingers crossed.

you should post every meal you make from you spending spree.

Thanks that's the plan! Read daily and there should be a meal each day.
