Lightbulb Pantry Challenge

I am having to use what is in my pantry right now. I was wondering if anyone would like to join me in a pantry challenge. You would only use what is in your pantry and freezer. You could buy things that spoil...fresh fruits & vegetables and dairy products.

Anyone game?

Tonight we had Hambergers from the freezer. I had froven them in packs of 5 after a cook out we had. Served with a baked potato's.

Last night we had cooked turkey from the freezer. I mixed a can of mushroom soup, chicken gravy mix and instant rice, plus water. It turned out tastey.

Haven't closed my eyes and open the freezer tonight and reached in yet for tomarrow meal. I might fixed beans in the crock.

Normally, I would be more than up for the challenge. However, if I were to try to do that right now, my family would practically starve.

I desperately need to do some major grocery shopping!

Can I stock my pantry and then join in or would that be cheating???

Sure! ;-) I am going camping on Monday so my pantry might be hurting a little as well.

Today for breakfast~ French Toast sticks(bought on sale buy 1 get 1 free.), turkey sausage(freezer), juice

Lunch~soup & baked potatoes.

Dinner~OUT FOR DINNER. Tonight is the last soccer game of the season and the team is going out to eat afterwards. Good news is that I have already paid for it So I just need to bring some extra $$$ for a tip ). Not very frugal, but atleast I don't have to pay $$$ tonight for it.

Yesterday we had oatmeal & muffins for brekafast. Lunch was homemade pizzas, and dinner was pan fried steaks that I picked up extremely cheap yesterday. We also had mashed potatoes and a salad.

Tonight will be Roasted chicken(from my freezer), rice(making leftovers for fried rice), peas & carrots & a salad. Ds might want biscuits. We will see.

I'm up for the pantry challenge! Recently cleaned & inventoried my deep-freeze & the one above fridge. Have enough meats & froz. veggies to last for a few weeks, at least. Lots of canned & dry goods in the pantry as well. Tonight's dinner will be Beef & Veggie soup made from dibs & dabs of leftovers..."free" soup! Will also bake a pan of cornbread. I love the challenge of thinking up ways to use up what I have on hand--- I get sooooo bored with fixing the same ol' things sometimes. Later today I'll try to post what I have on hand, meat-wise, & maybe get some new ideas from all of you! momperson

I am cleaning out my freezers tomorrow. With it getting close to turkey day I need to figure out what os there and make room for all my turkeys that I will buy...I normally buy 3-4 a year and save them for the next year. If we have family come into town and I have enough notice we will fry one up for them. And we always have one on the 4th of July
