Ring in the New Year with a Pantry Challenge! - Page 3

post #41 of 43

seaheroine, that garden sounds lovely!  I'm a little jealous of your ability to have such a long growing season.  My growing season is pretty much May to September.  :( 

 

 

I made applesauce, granola, and yogurt today all for tomorrow's breakfast.  We had homemade chicken noodle soup for dinner with the leftovers of everything.  I had a bean burrito with some leftover black beans in the fridge, frozen cheddar, and some sour cream I found in the back of the fridge.  Really low key.  Lunch for them was at Grandma's and breakfast was cereal and milk because we were running so late.  But it's wic cereal so it's free.  :)

May to Sept for the garden here too! But I use that day that we plant the veggie garden to run the snowblower out of gas. Judging by the snow we had this year, dont think I will have to do this! Its so powerful that no more snow will arrive that year!

 

But our bounty is eaten and then in fall, tomatoes are made into sauce and canned. The other veggies are chopped up and frozen for later use. Spices dried. Basil frozen.

 

 

But for this in the middle of winter: We just picked up our side so our freezer is stuffed beyond stuffed. We rearrnaged the pantry, DH moved some items of his out so I have more shelf space. I need to redo my shelves and spread out more. I also noticed several canned goods we enjoy all year are on major sale, so I will stock up and fill up that space.

Man thank goodness we make our own yogurt because the kids have been burning through 2quarts of homemade yogurt in 3 days lately!  Either that or I'm getting REALLY good at flavoring it the way they like it.  ;)  That was breakfast today.

 

Made a yummy potato soup with broccoli and carrots and onions in it for lunch today.  We had stopped by the local Great Harvest Co for bread because we thought they had their grand opening last week but apparently they weren't technically open yet due to weather delays with their oven coming in so the 3 year old and I each got a free super thick slice of honey whole wheat bread for free while we chatted up the owner.  So that combined with our soup was a DELISH lunch.  Maybe veggie tacos tonight?  Don't know yet.
