I’m taking the Pantry Challenge, eating what’s in the fridge, freezer, and pantry, and trying to save some cash.
The day is gone already? This summer is just flying by!
Today I grabbed a rice cake with sunbutter before I headed out for the gym. When I came back I had Skillet Eggs while the kids had cereal, my one concession for my little guy when we were at Trader Joe’s yesterday.
Yesterday I had sorted and soaked the last of the pinto beans we had. They were pretty old as many were split or losing their skins. Bummer. I cooked them overnight and then mixed up homemade chili in the slow cooker this morning. We had lots leftover so I’ll freeze what’s left to have another night.
At dinner I cooked up the eight pork chops I had thawed from the freezer. I made Curried Potatoes with the last of the potatoes and Roasted Cauliflower with a bag I had frozen from the produce box in the spring.
The freezer is dwindling, as is the pantry. This could get interesting. And I still haven’t gotten around to baking yet. Need to do that soon. Granola and zucchini baked goods are on the list.
Breakfast: Cereal, Skillet Eggs, Rice Cake and Sunbutter
Dinner: Pork Chops, Curried Potatoes, Roasted Cauliflower
