Menu Plan Pantry Challenge - Week 26
Yes, that's right, we have gone half of the year without buying meat, canned foods, pantry staples, or frozen foods from the store.
So what I have I purchased? Milk from a farmer, fruit (and even a lot of that has been given to us by friends/family with fruit trees or from our own garden), a few specialty items, vinegar (we go through a lot of that around here) and the occassional loaf of bread.
Note to self: really must make bread making a priority.
We have had parties and brunches and dinners with friends from our stash.
You know what has been amazing has been the variety of stuff we have had in the freezer/pantry. But my saving grace has been all of the freezer cooking that I have done at different times. That's why we have been able to do things like whip up a quick dinner for 9 at the drop of a hat. :)
