This month, we’re shopping our kitchen in order to use up what we have so we can save money and clear kitchen clutter.
Here we go with Day 1 of the Pantry Challenge. I’ll confess, I did not do any of the prep I might normally do.

I’m coming into the new year absolutely exhausted, so prepare yourself for less detail than I might normally share
In past years I’ve done a fair amount of pantry challenge planning in advance, but that hasn’t happened yet. I tidied the pantry and cleaned out the fridge. I made a quick meal plan, but I’m not sweating it.
I am so exhausted. I hope to explain later this week. For now, let’s just look at Day 1.
What We Ate Today
Breakfast – My daughter made my Basic Pancake Recipe for everyone. Some kids had eggs. I ate a leftover appetizer quesadilla from NYE.
Dinner – One of our new favorite dinners this fall is Potato Rice Coleslaw Bowls. I know, totally weird but it works. I make rice in the instant pot, roast potatoes, make this coleslaw, and cook some kind of protein, like skillet chicken or taco meat. The textures of the rice, spuds, and cabbage are really amazing together.
What did YOU do for Day 1?
PS If you notice comments from last year below, go ahead and disregard them. I’m basically reusing last year’s urls but rewriting each post as we go along through the month.
