Eating From the Pantry: Day 4

Eating From the Pantry

We’re on day 4 of the Eating From the Pantry Challenge… and I had figured we’d be almost out of food by now. But I keep coming up with plenty for us to eat! :)

Silas woke up early this morning, sauntered out to the kitchen where I was, and asked if he could please make cookies. We had a cookie mix in the cupboard, so I said he could make them.

Other than me heating up the butter and putting the cookies sheets in the oven and pulling them out of the oven, he did everything else all by himself! And the cookies turned out pretty well!

Almost everything is boxed up now, so we’re starting to get creative with things to do around here once school is done. Today, it was playing with playdough I picked up this weekend at the dollar store.

What we ate:

Breakfast: Baked Oatmeal

Lunch: Chips, Banana Bread, salad

Snack: Crackers, cookies, apples with almond butter

Dinner: Fried eggs, toast, pineapple

Eating From the Pantry: Day 3

Eating From the Pantry

It’s Day 3 of our Eating from the Pantry Challenge and the fridge and cupboards are getting barer. And we’re almost finished with all the packing, too. Just a few little odds and ends and part of our bedroom and we’re D-O-N-E! Yay!

It was a beautiful day and we made the most of it by spending a few hours in the afternoon with some friends at the park.

Don’t you just love the beauty of farm fresh eggs?

I found a club soda in the cupboard, so I introduced the kids to it. They weren’t big fans, but I loved it with a little lime juice. So refreshing!

Popcorn is a favorite snack at our house! It’s been a few weeks since we’ve made it, so it was a great from-the-pantry snack for today!

Here’s the run down on what we had today:

Breakfast: Baked Oatmeal

Lunch: Fried Eggs, oranges, Banana Bread (I had a salad.)

Snack: Popcorn, apples with almond butter

Dinner: Baked chicken with spices, oranges, green beans

Eating From the Pantry: Day 2

Eating From the Pantry

It’s Day 2 of the Eating From the Pantry Challenge. I made a pan of Baked Oatmeal this morning before we headed out for an early morning appointment. This recipe is always a winner.

A good friend came over today to spend the day with us. She made Banana Bread for us while she was here to use up some bananas we had in our freezer. This is such a delicious recipe!

For lunch, Kathrynne decided to eat some of the jar of jalepenos. She dared me to try some, too, but I passed. :) I’m kind of a wimp when it comes to hot stuff!

Eating From the Pantry: Day 1

Eat From the Pantry

We kind of cheated a little today on the Eat From the Pantry Challenge… we’d already scheduled to go out to dinner with my parents tonight and my parents offered to bring dinner over for my kids and my siblings who are babysitting them.

So I didn’t have to make anything for dinner, but we are using a gift card for dinner that we’ve had sitting at our house for a long time and wanted to use up before we moved. I guess that counts for something, right? :)

Anyway, here’s what we ate today:

Breakfast: Oatmeal

Lunch: Turkey sandwiches, apples, and chips (I had a salad!)

Snack: Finished off some ice cream some friends had brought by last week.

Dinner: Out to eat with my parents using a gift card

Today was a pretty simple and rather uneventful Eating from the Pantry day, but I have a feeling it will get more interesting as this week progresses and our cupboards become more bare. Stay tuned. :)

Join Us for an Impromptu Eat from the Pantry Challenge!

Eat From the Pantry Challenge

Since we’re moving to TN next week, I’m on a mission to use up everything in my freezer and refrigerator this week. So we’re doing an impromptu Eat from the Pantry Challenge.

We are going to buy milk, eggs, and bread. But other than that, I’m going to try to just use up what we already have here.

I’ll be posting an update every evening this week (through Friday evening), sharing what meals we came up with based upon what we already have on hand. I already have our basement pantry packed up, so this is going to make it even more of a fun challenge. :)

Want to join us? If you plan to join us for this Impromptu Eat from the Pantry Challenge, leave a link to your blog below. And then come back every evening and I’ll have a link-up for you to share what you ate from the Pantry that day. This should be interesting — and I can’t wait to see what you come up with to make!
