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 10 of the Pantry Challenge!
You’ve seen the baked feta and tomatoes thing that went viral last year? It’s delicious, but I didn’t have feta. I did have lots of sad looking tomatoes. If you follow my daily fridge check-in on Instagram, you’ve probably wondered when I was finally going to cook those.
Well, today was the day!
I chopped up several tomatoes and a large zucchini, peeled a bunch of garlic cloves, and drenched it all with olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, and red pepper flakes. I cooked it until soft in a 425 oven and then crumbled in some goat cheese. It was delicious! I had it over spaghetti squash, but it would be amazing on pasta or toast.
What We Ate
Four of us were home for breakfast and lunch. Bryan and the college boys packed stuff from home.
Breakfast – I had my standard Greek Yogurt With Muesli and blueberries. One girl pulled some cinnamon rolls from the freezer; another had cereal. My son had leftover chicken legs and veggies.
One daughter had leftover ribs and because her brothers had taken all the Souper Cubes of mashed potatoes, she made some from a bag of instant that I bought for thickening soup. She also thawed some gluten-free gravy I had frozen.
My son had leftover chicken legs and veggies. Go figure. Other daughter had grilled chicken and quinoa salad.
Dinner – I reheated a tub of Sausage Bolognese, cooked two kinds of pasta (gf and regular), made Spaghetti Squash In The Microwave, and cooked the aforementioned goat cheese and vegetable stuff. I had also prepped a salad yesterday for tonight so that was an easy and nice way to add veggies to everyone else’s plate.
No other prep today, but that’s okay. Tomorrow’s date night. 😉
How did Day 10 go for you?
