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 19 of the Pantry Challenge!
This has really been a wild month for me. Usually, I’m home with plenty of time to do things in the kitchen, but this month there have been sooooo many appointments and things to keep me overly occupied.
Today was something for me, though. I went to get my hair done, have lunch out, and go dress shopping for my son’s wedding.
The time went by all too quickly! Whatever happened to my mom’s days out when I had hours to twiddle my thumbs.
Life has certainly picked up speed.
Nonetheless, we did work use up some foods in the kitchen!
What We Ate
Breakfast – I made a Turkey Patty Melt in the air fryer (!) with a leftover burger from Monday, leftover shredded cheese from taco night, and Sourdough Rye Bread. It was yummy. The kids had yogurt with stuff in it.
Lunch – The three kids had leftovers/fended for themselves while I tried a new Indian restaurant near my hair dressers. Unfortunately, they didn’t ask for my preferred spice level and I forgot to request it. I’m learning it really ranges from restaurant to restaurant. This one was very disappointing. It was definitely gringo level — or whatever they say in India.
Dinner – I thawed the last tub of Spicy Turkey and Sausage Bolognese from the freezer, adding a little bit more crushed tomatoes and last night’s leftover turkey meat to stretch it. I also cooked pasta, Spaghetti Squash In The Microwave, and polenta in the instant pot. I made another meatless tomato-goat cheese concoction for myself.
All in all, a good day!
How did Day 19 go for you?
