I would really love a good old fashioned pantry challenge! I just got back from visiting my parents and haven't gone to the grocery store yet. I would love a pantry challenge! So this is what I have.

Several kinds of flour including about a cup of white flour and 3 pounds of whole wheat along with the basics like baking soda, baking powder, salt, honey, etc.

Cans of baked beans, corn and tomatoes

dried beans, lentils and rice

onions and garlic


chicken whole



3 sausages



I think that is about it. I am feeling a little old Mrs. Hubbard around here. :lol:

That mix of ingredients is just begging for a one pot meal recipe! I'd probably stew the chicken, take the meat off the bones, then cook the vegetables, including the onion and garlic, and at the end add the rice and chopped chicken. I'd use the sausage with the beans for another dish meal. 


Have you tried You insert your ingredients you have on hand and it comes up with a list of recipes possible! Pretty neat and handy too. :)
