It's been 13 days since I've been to the grocery store and today is Day 3 of our official Eating From The Pantry Challenge.
We used up the last of the flour and milk (which was expiring today) in the pancakes this morning. So now it's time to really get creative!
Here's what we ate today:
By the way, here's my favorite recipe for pancakes:
3 cups whole-wheat flour (or a combination of whole-wheat/white)
3 Tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
3 beaten eggs
3 cups milk (you can use buttermilk or sour milk)
6 Tablespoons oil
Combine dry ingredients in one bowl. Combine wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Stir together just until moistened. Add additional milk to thin batter if necessary.
Cook on a hot, lightly greased griddle or heavy skillet. Makes approximately 20 standard sized pancakes.
We were in a baking mood this afternoon so we got creative and found a few recipes to make which didn't include flour and milk. We made these no bake cookies (using powdered milk) and these peanut butter cookies. These bars also looked really good, but I ran out of time and energy before I had a chance to make them.
Snack: apple slices, cookies
Dinner: Veggie and rice soup (I remade the leftover stir fry from last night into soup adding in some broth and seasonings and extra veggies.), biscuits (made with Bisquick and powdered milk since we're out of flour and milk)
If you're eating from your pantry this week, I'd love to hear what was on your menu today!
