Pantry Challenge – Day 3

I’m participating in a two week Pantry Challenge with Good Cheap Eats.  I do this to use what we have on hand, reduce waste and hopefully save a little money.  Contrary to what my Teens will think at the end of the Challenge, I am NOT doing this to torture my family.

Well, the mystery has been solved and I have finally figured out what the Teens have been eating for lunch (all day??) for the past couple of days – sandwiches, lots & lots of sandwiches.  We had 1 1/2 loafs of bread on Sunday and are now almost out of the “good” bread (Orowheat Oatnut & Potato), and almost out of deli meat.  I think I will have to break down and buy bread, maybe deli meat.  Depends on how bad the whining gets.  I do have canned tuna and chicken, and crackers, on hand (not enough to last through the Challenge, though), and peanut butter and jelly is always an option – we shall see.

Day Three went down better than Day Two.  Here’s what we ate:

  • Breakfast – cereal for The Boy, eggs & toast for The Girl, toast for me
  • Lunch – turkey and cheese sandwiches
  • Dinner – ham steaks from the freezer and stovetop mac & cheese
  • Snacks – mango smoothies, cherries
