This month we’re avoiding the grocery store and shopping the kitchen. Here’s how we’re eating. It’s like reality TV, for food.


It was a go-go-go kind of day. Three kids had science co-op so we were out of the house by 8:45 in the pouring rain, but we got breakfast done before we left.

We came home famished, so the kids had beans/rice or nachos or both. One child had leftover mac and cheese from the other day. Since I had made my lunch yesterday, it was easy to heat it up and just eat.

By the way, did you know that soy sauce makes a great topping for chicken and spaghetti squash? I never would have tried that except for my husband showing me how. So good!

Dinner was a big pot of bolognese jam-packed with veggies. There was enough leftover for tomorrow’s lunch and/or maybe to poach eggs in for a meat shakshuka. Yummy!

Pantry Challenge Meals, Day 9

Breakfast: Greek Eggs; oatmeal

Lunch: Nachos and Rice and Beans for the kids with veggie dippers; Squash bowl with chicken and roast veggies for me

Dinner: Vegetable Bolognese with LOADS of veggies, penne or spaghetti squash; fruit for dessert

  1. Mon 1/9
    B – bagel and cream cheese, grapefruit (me only, he doesn’t like sour)
    L – forgot my lunch so picked up a hotdog at Costco, not sure what he did. Probably his usual pizza.
    D – used leftover Italian sausages to make pasta primavera which also used up an opened half box of pasta that I did not realize was only a half box and almost finished off the grape tomatoes
    S – popcorn in afternoon, cookies and tea during that crazy college football championship game (I was so tired and nodding off during 3rd quarter and almost gave up and went to bed. Glad I stuck around, as that was a heck of an ending. but now it’s really late so I’m zipping off to sleep.)

    • Heather M says:

      my husband and I turned it on later in the game (after watching a silly show we both love-embarrassing), and I too had to stay up to the bitter end. Wild!

  2. Today was a manic monday, one sick child, husband had dr, appt, I had a deadline at work, the 10th grader started her college class- geesh!, we made it.
    B- muffins and tea
    L- shredded beef, sautéed onions/mushrooms, gravy and rice.
    D- leftovers. Crackers/Tuna for the younger one.
    Husband was fasting yesterday, so since he got to eat at lunch we made it a big deal. I spent $15 today on needed food for my little one to help with her stomach flu. By the end of the day, i didnt feel so hot myself… crossing fingers I dont get sick,

    • Stephanie P says:

      Marci – I really hope you don’t get sick. I’m a germaphobe I’ll admit, but I feel like with two kids in school (well one in daycare), a husband who works with kids, and the fact that I spent the day with my mom the day before she got sick – I am just biding my time. I’ll pick up sick food just in case 😉

    • I hope you all stay/get well!

    • Heather M says:

      Yikes, stomach flu! Best wishes to all in your house!!

  3. Jen in Colorado says:

    I defrosted a package of fresh pumpkin from the fall and baked some mini pumpkin bread loaves in my new 18-loaf pan. Kids were thrilled!
    I stopped by a store on the way home from dropping husband at airport in the morning.. grabbed a few pantry/lunch items on sale/doubled coupons and snagged 2 turkey breast portions just marked down! Put those into the freezer for future turkey Ruben night!

  6. Kathy in Denmark says:

    Dinner: Egg salad sandwiches on whole wheat bread. Veggies on the side.
    Snacks: Fruit and Christmas cookies (only a few left now, yay!)

    Thank you for your thoughts regarding buying bargins during a PC. I feel a little less guilty now 😉

  7. It was an easy day in the kitchen. I had lots of leftovers to work with so none of the dishes were difficult to prepare.

    B: Chocolate bread, milk, pineapple spears
    L: Using leftover chicken made a quick chicken noodle soup for lunch and served it with Italian bread leftover from dinner the night before
    D: I had a large pot of pasta Bolognese leftover from Sunday. To change it up a bit I made baked pasta. I added a couple of eggs and Parmesan cheese and put it in a casserole with a Panko crumb topping. I served the pasta with steamed broccoli, green beans and pineapple spears.
    S: I received some boxed cookie mixes in a gift basket for Christmas. My daughters had friends over after school so we made cookies for snacks and served them with cold milk.

    We are going to have to get a few items at the store. We have 1 egg left and less than ½ gallon of milk. If I am going to use up some of our large store of baking supplies I will need to buy some of each.

  8. Yesterday was good here as well.

    B- sausage pancake muffins, cereal, coffee, fruit
    S- snacks for the kids were cherry tomatoes, applesauce, cheese and crackers
    L- kids and I ate grilled cheese and tomato soup, tabbouleh and pita chips and grapes
    S-more snacks when I made some zucchini apple muffins
    D- I had several ends of cheese leftover from the holidays so I made macaroni and cheese, apple chicken sausages, peas and broccoli

    Fridge has lots of white space and the fruit bowl on the counter is almost empty so I’ll head to the store after dropping my daughter off to K.

  9. Hi Jessica. I am Annemarie who has been setting the outfits this week.

    I came home from work yesterday to find my hubby had made vegetable soup. Unheard of. Its his first soup. Carrot and tomato with spices. Very tasty.

    • Of course, I know you! I haven’t figured out why your comments keep landing in the moderation queue. Sorry about that. Isn’t your husband the photo bomber, too? How great that he makes soup, too! 🙂

  10. tastycook says:


    B – cereal and banana for me, fruit and coffee cake for hubby

    L – egg salad sandwiches

    S – tourtiere and h/m baked beans

    At the most went we are both fighting some kind of bug, keeping it at bay . . .just. Hope it doesn’t develop into anything more, specially for hubby.

    • Stephanie M. says:

      I hope you both feel better very soon. Unfortunately, it’s that time of year. Stay warm.

      • tastycook says:

        Thanks Stephanie. I`m not concerned about myself because I have managed to keep it under control with over the counter meds and altho I feel stuffed up, I`m fine. I am more concerned about hubby because I don`t know what he`d be allowed to take. Safest thing is nothing but that might mean lots of sneezing which will still hurt. Fortunately, we have (he has) an appointment to see the cardiologist tomorrow anyway.

        • Stephanie M. says:

          I’m glad he’s going. They will tell him what he can take and hopefully he will feel better soon and you too! 🙂

  11. Monday 1/9

    Breakfast – Sausage, scrambled eggs & toast

    Lunch – Hard salami & swiss sandwiches

    Dinner – Beef roast, potatoes and carrots

  12. Stephanie M. says:


    B – Hubby had cereal; I skipped breakfast

    L – Hubby had the last of the leftover stew; I had a salad

    D – We had meatloaf, fried pasta, and cucumber salad

    Meat drawer getting emptier by the day. Yahoo!!

    • Danielle L Zecher says:

      How do you fry pasta? I’ve never heard of that. but it sounds good.

      • Stephanie M. says:

        Hi Danielle: So funny you should ask. I was on the phone yesterday talking to a girlfriend and she asked me what I was cooking for dinner and when I mentioned fried pasta she, too, asked me what that was and then said that she’s going to do that too. Ha Ha. It’s nothing really. When I have leftover pasta that has no sauce on it rather than throw it away, I melt some butter in a skillet and fry it till it’s crispy. That’s it. Ha Ha. Another way I do it sometimes if I want it to be a full meal rather than a side dish is, I will just boil some pasta in the morning and let it sit in the colander until dinner time. Then I will melt the butter in the skillet, add the pasta and some chopped up deli ham. In another bowl, I will whisk several eggs and when the pasta has been frying for several minutes, I will pour the eggs over it and continue cooking until the eggs are done and the whole thing is light brown and crispy. I usually serve a salad with that. It’s good comfort food and cheap and easy. LOL

  13. Sunday we had a ham and cheese oven omelet for brunch and I fixed a big pot of spaghetti sauce and shell pasta for supper. Saved some of the pasta for salad for me later.

    Monday we had PB toast, halos and tea, he had a snacky lunch and I had pasta salad, we had more shell pasta for supper. There is still pasta left so today may be more of the same.

  14. Monday- back to the gym after a LONG Christmas break. Shocked at the number of January exercisers!

    Breakfast-fig bar, tea

    Lunch-quinoa salad with garbanzos, orange

    Dinner-a turkey enchilada-ish casserole using up bits and pieces. The orange color was off putting, but it tasted good. The husband was a little skeptical, but had two servings.

    • Stephanie P says:

      I’m never shocked in January to see the gym full because of New Years Resolution time. Though this year – I’m even worse, as I haven’t consistently worked out in so long!

    • Heather M says:

      I was at the gym after a long holiday break too. always fun to see all the new faces that aren’t usually there at that time. 🙂 Also, clearly the dinner tasted good, even if it looked strange. 2 servings is a pretty good clue. 🙂

  15. Jen in IN says:

    B: scrambled eggs, avocado, and wheat tortilla tacos. I added some hummus to mine. Pineapple banana smoothie for the kids.

    L: leftover pasta carbonara for husband and I. One son took mini frittatas, the other took egg salad. They both had orange slices, yogurt tube and apple oatmeal muffin.

    D: chicken noodle soup using stock and cooked chicken from the freezer
    English muffin bread with butter and jam.

    S: homemade chocolate pudding and whipped cream.
    Oldest son had a bowl of cereal after swim practice.

    I had to mystery shop the grocery store on Sunday and picked up tortillas, lettuce, and deli chicken breast.

  16. Stephanie P says:

    While weekends are my favorite part of the week, Mondays (like many) are my least favorite. Every third Monday I have a church meeting from 5-7:30 and my husband bowls, so he takes my kids to his parents to eat, and usually my parents watch the kids until my meeting is over. Yesterday however, the kids had to go to my inlaws, as my mom has the dreaded stomach bug.

    B: Coffee for me. Eggs and bacon for my son, and eggs and banana for my daughter.
    L: I had brought leftover soup to eat, but I forgot we had a lunch meeting. Instead I had a turkey sub and some fruit. My daughter eats whatever the daycare has every day, and my son had his “normal” turkey sandwich with cheese. I also packed carrots and applesauce.
    S: I had half a piece of cake from someone’s birthday
    D: I ate late after the meeting and didn’t feel like cooking so I had leftover pasta from the previous night with broccoli.

  17. Danielle L Zecher says:

    The roads were still icy, so I stayed home from work, which meant I had more time for breakfast than I usually do on a week day.

    Breakfast: Blackberry waffles with blackberry syrup (found a bottle I bought who knows when that expires later this month).

    Lunch: Leftover turkey stuffing casserole, collard greens, and cranberry sauce for me. Hubby is starting on night shift tonight, so slept until afternoon yesterday to switch over. He had waffles, and no lunch.

    Dinner: Hubby made calzones – pepperoni and mushroom for him, bell pepper, onion, spinach, and olive for me.

  18. The viruses have been in full force around here – I had the stomach bug (haven’t had one like that in over 15 years) and a cold in December (haven’t had one in probably 4 years). I feel like after 3 weeks the cold is still hanging on a little bit. I heard the stomach bug was still running around here last week and my daughter had it 2 weeks ago. The best anyone can do is keep their hands washed but we know that’s no guarantee.

    A couple ladies mentioned having husbands who travel, I have had that for 15 years now. I definitely eat differently when he is gone. Simple is the rule! When my kids were still home and in school, I usually made stuff they preferred like tacos, spaghetti or pasta, stuff like that.

    Day 9
    B – hubs had a banana, yogurt and hot tea, I had a banana cut w/strawberries & a graham cracker w/pb
    L – hubs had a grilled cheese & fritos and I had an italian chopped salad
    D – I had leftover beef stroganoff, hubs is on the road again 😉
    S – fritos, olives, nuts
    Dessert – chocolate (I think I eat a piece of dark chocolate every single day, addiction maybe?)

    Everyone’s meal sound delicious. I have already gone recipe hunting for some of the stuff I have read!

  19. Laurie in CA says:

    Speaking of sales, our Food4Less had bs chicken breasts for $1.18 a lb. I just couldn’t pass that deal up and bought 11 lbs.. I also picked up a couple odd things I needed. I spent $23 so now I’m down to $28 left for the month. Yikes! I think the only thing I’ll need to replenish are eggs, bread and milk and maybe a little veg the rest of the month. Fingers crossed that I can keep to my $100 budget for this month. Also keep in mind I haven’t bought beef since August. When I cost out the ¼ steer it works out to $82 a month for the grass fed beef (it was $8.50 a lb. and really nice and lean and tasty).
    B – avocado and fried egg on toast for me, fried eggs, sausage and toast for hubs
    L –half a peanut butter and fruit spread sandwich before I went to the dentist and half an apple after I got home, I’m not sure what hubs ate
    D – I thawed my last jar of Bolognese sauce, added ground beef and served it over the last of the spaghetti squash in the pantry. We had French bread and a nice cabernet with it.

  20. We officially started the pantry challenge today. We are basically pantry challenging it through March this year. I can/freeze/dry a ton of food each summer, so this is our pantry challenge. We try to buy as minimal as we can from about January through April each year. We do still buy from the store/farmers (for eggs, fresh fruit and veg) but we try to keep it to a minimum. So here we go!

    My husband was sick, so today was a little strange.

    B: I had chia pudding, my husband had applesauce and tea
    L: I had leftover cabbage meatball soup and roasted squash; husband had the same soup with some mashed potatoes
    S: roasted brats over roasted root veggies (rutabaga, radish, carrot, beet, sweet potato, onion, garlic, parsnip)

  21. Went to my parents to help them for part of the day and they sent me home with various open crackers and chips left from the holidays. Grr! I was trying to work through our own, but I understand they don’t use them. They said the kids will eat them up really fast here. The kids didn’t complain because I don’t buy much of that! Also had to drop off a computer to be fixed in town, so ran to Aldi to get the basics. Hadn’t bought anything this year, but I stuck to my list and only got dairy, veggies, a little fruit and tortillas. Only spent $40 on grocery items and another $8 on paper products, so I didn’t think that was too bad.
    B- Leftover egg casserole
    L- Hubby had leftovers and I brought ham bone soup to my parents for our lunch.
    D- Stuffed peppers from the freezer, salad using the last of the homemade bleu cheese dressing, garlic bread rolls using some slightly freezer burnt sub rolls I had picked up on clearance from the bakery awhile back and oranges sliced. Christmas cookies for dessert.
    S- Popcorn

  22. Heather M says:

    Catching up on two days, but it’s not hard. Sundays are always strange, and we change our church schedule at the beginning of each new year, alternating with another congregation who uses the same building (it’s set up like a school district, attend with the group who lives in the same boundaries as you do; alternate times so it’s fair). We moved to noon-3 church time. Sunday-day 8- only the son ate anything beforehand- he had a bowl of cereal and a yogurt. After church, though I had plans to throw together something quick, hubby really wanted to go out to a favorite comfort food restaurant (it’s run by a greek family, so has greek food, italian, etc). So we did. And later that evening we finished our leftovers from it.

    Monday-9-, another cold day here, ready for the warm-up coming in a few days (supposed to hit 60 thursday! but then freezing rain again Saturday? Ugh, the crazy weather living in the DC area- matches the craziness of everything happening in town right now).

    B: hubs and son had cereal, bacon, and OJ; I had a piece of stollen from the neighbors

    L: son took a turkey and cheese sandwich and a Clif bar; hubs took leftover meatballs & broccoli over rice noodles and a banana; I had a tuna sandwich, pretzels, and an apple

    D: used leftover rice from the chinese food last week (so little ever gets used when we order it!) and made a yummy fried rice with spicy deli ham and turkey that needed eating, celery, carrots, onion, and peas. I almost finished off the teriyaki sauce in the fridge, but there’s a little left still, some oyster sauce and water to thin them a bit. yum! Son only ate the ham separately with carrot sticks and apple slices, as he had eaten the rest of his leftover pizza from Sunday and wanted to eat lighter.

    Today I hope to plan some meals and also inventory the food stores. I’m flying by the seat of my pants right now. It’s going become a problem soon, if I don’t!

  23. We had eggs and tuna fish at lunch for protein so we had a veggie supper – roasted carrot and broccoli, sautéed spinach,kale salad, avocado/tomatoes, and a baked potato. Avacado, spinach, tomatoes and potatos were on their last leg. There are some nice leftovers for tonight!

    • I always mix hard boiled eggs with tuna to make tuna/egg salad. We eat it in sandwiches, with crackers or on salad. Your vegetables supper sounds delicious and really healthy!

  24. After looking at my freezers I think I will PC thru all of February . I thought I share a really good easy recipe with you all. Turkey stuffing loaf. 1To 1and1/2 pounds ground turkey 1egg 1/4c water 1box turkey stuffing mix. Soak stuffing mix in egg and water, add turkey mix well bake at 375 til tests done(1hour?) this so yummy with turkey gravy also super easy .
    Today’s menu b cereal juice (hubby) toast coffee me
    Lunch lasagna (used ricotta that was living in my fridge to long) and cheese odds and ends yeah.
    D potato kale soup garlic toast salad. Have a great day everyone .

  25. My fridge is looking much better after yesterday, was able to finish off tons of little odds/ends. Not to really get to work on the pantry.

    B-L/O sautéed veggies and peanut sauce, bagel thin and cream cheese
    S-Chocolate chip Larabar
    L-L/O salad, last of the pico de gallo (finally!), leftover crabless cake sauce and a sautéed “chicken” breast
    S-Grilled cheeze with vegan bacon
    D-Zucchini “meatballs” with noodles and zoodles

    Was able to clear almost all the leftovers, finished the zucchini that was just barely hanging on and a almost finished box of whole wheat fettuccini. Fridge is looking pretty bare, but I think we’ll be fine for the rest of the week. I need to focus the next couple of dinners on pantry/freezer items and slow down on clearing the fridge.

  26. I have come to the conclusion that a yearly PC is great but that I buy too much the rest of the year. I think I may try lowering my food budget a few dollars each week so that I buy less and use what I have on hand more. Some of you are really thinning out what you have and I don’t seem to be making as big a dent as I thought I would. I love sales and overbuy on them!
    B – egg and 1/2 a bagel with cream cheese
    L – L/O beef stroganoff (still enough left for 1 more meal), L/O veggies (2 different ones)
    D – 1/2 Price burgers out at our favorite burger place.

  27. Yesterday, we had Greek shrimp bake( with spinach and feta. ) All from freezer, frig., pantry.
    Tonight will be meatloaf, potatoes ,salad and green beans.
    We have everything but the beans. Need to do a vegetable shop. Intend to do that this afternoon.

  28. Oh that Bolognese looks so wonderful!!! Reality TV, for food? Yes please!!!

  29. Monday was back to work/school. This is DS 1st day back from Christmas Break.

    Breakfast – I FORGOT WHAT I ATE. I work at a surgery center and we have to be there b4 6 and then patients come in at 6:15. We eat on the go whenever we get 5 mins to choke it down. Oh well.
    Lunch – Hubs took l/o. DS took sandwich and chips and banana and cake. I took homemade veggie soup that had been in the freezer.
    Supper – Pork roast, squash/pepper/onion stir fry and green beans w/ potatoes.

  30. Jan 9
    Breakfast–Husband had his eggs and I are on toast
    Lunch grilled cheese and chips
    Dinner-Baked pork tenderloin, roasted potatoes and green beans.

  31. We are on day 4 of being snowed in here in VA. I’m happy with how well I’ve done with the challenge but are definitely running low on things. Kids are out of school tomorrow hoping I can get to the store sometime.

  32. I hope this is the right place to post this. I already posted it in two other (obviously wrong) places. Sorry about the redundancy.

    Ok. This was my first day, actually my first time EVER doing any kind of pantry challenge. I gotta say, it went pretty well! We were snowed/iced in, and we didn’t go ANYWHERE today. No big, my pantry is pretty well stocked for the two of us.
    We didn’t have breakfast, we never do. I know, please don’t judge. ?
    For lunch I mad some Asian coleslaw, and for supper we had some cod from the freezer that I baked with some Mrs. Dash, some Au Gratin potatoes (from a box that I had), and the rest of the coleslaw. Dessert was Rice Crispy treats that I made earlier in the day.
    I even have some ideas for the next few days, using only what I have on hand :-)! This is HUGE for me and its making me feel really good (and frugal)!! I’m so glad I found you guys!

    • Heather M says:

      Welcome!! You’re already getting the hang of it, it seems! Have fun with it. 🙂

    • Stephanie M. says:

      Welcome aboard Holly. I think you’ll really enjoy everything about this blog; the recipes, the insight, the comraderie (I know that’s not spelled right. ha ha). I read your comment about my little “fur babies” and their home made dog biscuits. Ha Ha. Thanks for commenting. 🙂

    • Welcome to the group! I find it’s usually easy for the first couple of days, then the group peer pressure really helps me to stay on track when I’m tempted to do revert to bad habits.

    • Pantry Challenges are fun when you have others to share with and ideas from what they are doing. Keep up the good work. This is my second year of PC and you really learn a bunch about yourself while doing this.

  33. Christine says:

    We had a sick kid at home too, which meant I didn’t go to work. He didn’t eat much. I packed lunches for the other kid and dad.
    Dinner was homemade chicken pot pie with biscuits. It allowed me to use all the left over frozen mixed veggies from the night before. Hoping to stay out of the store till Saturday!

  34. Does anyone else feel like they are still playing holiday catch up? Hope it isn’t just me!

    B: Smoothies
    L: Homemade Lunchables/fruit/nuts
    D: Cheese tortellini soup, ciabatta buns

    • Heather M says:

      Oh you are not alone! Still feeling that. 🙂

    • Kathy in Denmark says:

      I definitely get where you’re coming from!

      We still have Christmas cookies left over and I haven’t gotten around to change the waxed tablecloth back to our regular one. I kind of think I am the only one noticing this, so I am telling myself that I will catch up sooner or later 🙂

  35. Sue Diamond says:

    Jan 11th

    We have finally worked our way through all holiday leftovers so just need to carry on running the freezer (and tea cupboard!) down.

    B – Oatmeal with last sad apple, grated.
    L – LO rye crust broccoli and leek tart, greek yoghurt
    D – Tocca pizzas with tomato, onions and anchovies. Sausage rolls from the freezer for hubby as he cycles 30km back from work so needs piles of extra food! Then tinned apricots
    S – HM flapjacks

  36. Hi! I guess I’ve been lax the last couple of days, so I’m playing catch up with my posts. Yesterday (1/11/17) dinner was beef & been enchiladas. They were ok. I used a can of beef (its kinda like cooked ground beef in a can) that I had in the pantry along with a can of re-fried beans and some left-over tortillas. I was going to make home made enchilada sauce, but I forgot.
    Tonight’s dinner was old fashioned goulash. I found the recipe at My Incredible and it was REALLY good!! And I had ALL the ingredients in my pantry/freezer! It made a LOT, so I’ll probably end up freezing some of the leftovers for later.

  37. January 9

    Breakfast: bacon and egg sandwich for me, cereal for the hubs

    Lunch: leftover meatloaf and mashed potatoes for me, snacky lunch for the hubs

    Dinner: marinated chicken, rice and broccoli/cauliflower
