Eat Down the Pantry, Week 2 Menu

on January 7, 2013

Ahem…so far, I’ve thrown away 1 opened bag of roasted peanuts that expired in January of 2011, found a can of…something (I don’t know because the wrapper’s been peeled off), and used most of a 6 lb can of whole, peeled tomatoes. I’ve found anchovy paste, condensed two opened canisters of coca powder down into one, and – this is important – I’ve used our menu chalkboard consistently throughout the challenge.

Oh yeah. I have a menu chalkboard. Don’t hate.

It’s actually a bit of a sanity saver. My oldest has been reading for awhile now. She can look at the board and see what we’re having, as opposed to asking me over and over and over and over…well, you get the idea. 🙂

My awesome husband made pancakes and let me sleep in.
