The Pantry Challenge is on! This month we’re focusing on what we have, to use it up and save money.
It’s a good day when you’ve got homemade bread all sliced and ready to go as well as dough for two more loaves to bake off. How about we top if off with a lovely batch of home-cultured buttermilk? Booyah!
Slowly but surely, this nightly meal prep thing is working out. I set the bread dough in the fridge to slow rise overnight. It doesn’t end up rising as high as freshly made dough, but it’s doable. Plus, the kids have freshly baked bread for breakfast and lunch.
My plan from yesterday to cook rice for tonight’s Vegetable Fried Rice worked really well until my daughter burned herself and dropped most of the rice on the floor. I’m thankful that her burn wasn’t serious, and rice is cheap. The kids had a half batch of rice for dinner and then I made fresh rice and a Chicken Green Bean Stir-fry.
Bryan and I had a date night, so we ate out. All in all, it was a good day.
