Pantry Challenge – Day 4

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.  

You can view all of my Pantry Challenge posts HERE.


Day 4 was rather ordinary – nothing too exciting.  My weekend starts today, and I hope to do some prepping of extra snacks and meals.  I’d love to have some extra goodies for The Teens to eat while I am at work next week.  Of course, I am running the risk of them scarfing down everything over the weekend.  I need to come up with some treat recipes that don’t use the oven – please share if you have any good ones in your recipe box!

  • Breakfast – cereal and toast
  • Lunch – leftover macaroni & cheese and ham
  • Dinner – Tortilla pizzas with hamburger, onion & black olives (used up pizza sauce & cooked hamburger from the freezer); The Girl made hers with fresh spinach & onion; fruit, salad
  • Snacks – mango smoothies (we’ve used almost an entire Costco bag of mangos in the last few days!), popcorn

So, are you ready to join the Summer 2014 Pantry Challenge?  If you are, I would love to hear about your progress. Post your progress or any questions you have in the Comments.  I’ll do my best to answer.  Happy Eating!!!
