Pantry Challenge: Chopped Edition, Day 3

Don’t forget to enter the Spring Seasons of Joy Giveaway!

Day 2 was another success! We used the honey to sweeten our oatmeal at breakfast. For lunch we had a family favorite– tuna and cream cheese blended together, with crackers and pickles. For dinner I cooked the sausage and cut it into coins and served it with spaghetti, sauce, and green beans. I’m not a terribly creative cook, so if you’re looking for fascinatingly unique recipes, you’ve probably come to the wrong blog.

Todays basket includes:
Michael (fridge): Hummus
Katie Grace (cupboards): Bisquick
Nicholas (pantry): Boxed mac and cheese
Daniel (freezer): trout cakes

OK, I am seriously getting embarrassed by the amount of junk in my cupboards. Part of the problem is we tend to shop at the Amish/Mennonite surplus store, and things are dirt cheap, so I buy them up. Maybe using up the Bisquick will encourage me to finally make Master Mix. The hummus is yummy and leftover from co-op last week. The trout cakes are actually fairly healthy, and I have no excuse whatsoever for the mac and cheese, so I won’t even try. At least I’m keeping it real.

    No shame for what you are using out of the pantry! At least you are using it up (and if you have the will power, not re-stock the stuff you want to cut out. Me personally – i LOVED boxed mac and cheese, i don’t think I’ll ever give it up! LOL).

    i think i need to try this challenge though, so much stuff stocked up that i haven’t touched (scary how old it maybe)
