I’m taking the Pantry Challenge, eating what’s in the fridge, freezer, and pantry, and trying to save some cash.
We enjoyed a fairly lazy day today. The gym doesn’t open until nine on weekends, so I didn’t need to get up too early. As it was, we were out of milk and bread and eggs, so I ran to Sprouts early to grab milk, eggs, and a few fruits and veg they had on special.
I had a bowl of cereal before I left for the gym. The kids made eggs on their own. Hubs did auto repair.
When I got back, I had an egg; FishPapa made himself oatmeal, and the kids had second breakfast of both. All that didn’t wrap up until 11.
For lunch at 2 pm we grilled some chicken breasts and rounded it out with veggies and rice. And yes, we ate on paper plates. Better than take-out, I always say.
After lunch I took the three younger kids to Trader Joe’s, not the best move during a Pantry Challenge. I felt bad saying no to so many requests, but I had a good talk about it with FishBoy9 and he was (eventually) okay with it.
Dinner was late since every other meal was late. We had Alfredo noodles with a side salad. I didn’t get around to baking, hoping to get there still tonight.
Breakfast: Cereal, Milk, Eggs, Oatmeal
Lunch: Grilled Chicken, Steamed Vegetables, Rice

I’ll be posting daily updates on how the challenge is going. You can read through the PC archives here.
