2013 Pantry Challenge
Since 2010 I have participated in the Pantry Challenge hosted by Jessica at Good Cheap Eats. It is a fantastic way to eat what we have on hand, use up food before expiration dates hit, get creative in the kitchen and save money. There are several ways to approach the challenge - Jessica discusses them here. This is how we do it at our house.
1. Plan from the pantry/freezer/refrigerator first.
2. Shop only for fresh food items -- salad fixins, fruit and dairy products
That's it, so simple.
I'll post weekly updates as well as any great recipes or meals we discover as we eat through our pantry and freezer this month.
