2015 Winter Pantry Challenge: Day Twenty-Five

This month our family is participating in a Pantry Challenge. We’re focusing on using up what we have in order to save money and time as well as to reduce waste.

Sorry. Again no picture. It was a weird day. I slept in, took a 90 minute nap in the afternoon, and I’m ready to go to bed now at 8:40 pm. Weird.

My dental patients are back to themselves, except for the liquid diet. I think I may have to get them more supplies before Friday comes, but we’ll see.

The day went well though.

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Toppings

Lunch: Sandwiches (almond butter/jam, tuna salad)

Dinner: Pancakes for the littles; smoothies/mashed potatoes/clam chowder for the big boys; date night for the parents

Chicken Noodle Stirfry

I really am quite pleasantly surprised that we’re already to day 24 without too much carnage. In fact, today was quite tasty! If you follow me on Facebook, you know that I was a little late on the draw when it came to dinner tonight. After a rather nerve-wracking day nursing my two Wisdom Teeth boys, I didn’t really have a plan for dinner that I wanted to eat.

I made it an experiment. I had chicken and cabbage and was leaning toward Asian, so I rummaged for the Japanese Udon and Ramen noodles I knew were in the pantry and pulled together a really tasty stir-fry dish. The boys with the sore mouths had clam chowder from Costco and the rest of us ate this. It was so good! I had a hard time stopping. I’m so glad there’s some leftover! [Continue reading…]

Pantry Challenge Update: Week Three

We are in the home stretch, people! Week Three is done. Whew! I’m so glad. Our pantry is looking pretty sparse. Pasta is gone; rice is gone; most of the beans are gone. The big freezer is emptied and unplugged. Only one week to go! This last week is kinda crazy. I’m not quite jumpy […]
