always be prepared and a challenge
my pantry is empty. normally that's not good news. but i have once again eaten myself out of house and home. by doing this twice a year, i eat everything without it being expired. no waste.
i also have the second part of my pantry purge: coupons! now when i restock the pantry, i will do it cheaply. i will stock up on the basics, but if it's on sale or i have a coupon or both! i plan on having posting my receipt this time, instead of throwing it away like i did in january.
i made a few interesting dishes: angel hair pasta with a chunky marina full of sliced olives, garlick-y shrimp scampi, sausage balls (served with scrambled eggs for a delicious late night breakfast).
i do know that this time, i will be donating the sardines in mustard sauce to my friend's cat. i am not putting them back in my cabinet again since i have no intention of ever eating them.
