A few circumstances this month have unexpectedly created an impromptu pantry challenge in our household. Depending on the results and success of this challenge I may propose and host a larger group pantry challenge in a month or so.
What is a pantry challenge you ask?
Essentially it is a challenge to eat from your pantry for a month. You plan and prepare meals with the ingredients you have on hand stashed and hidden in your pantry, fridge, and freezer. There are several advantages to a pantry challenge; not only do you use things you might otherwise forget you had, you also save money, and when done in a large group you gain encouragement and accountability.
My personal one-woman pantry challenge will be for the next 2 weeks; through the end of the month. Thankfully I stocked up on meat last month when it went on sale. Prayerfully I will be able to make it through the next couple of weeks on the ingredients I have on hand. I will certainly keep you updated and be on the look out for a group-wide pantry challenge.
