Pantry Challenge - Catching Up & Grocery Shopping

I really have been sticking to the pantry challenge even if I have not had much time to blog about it.  I found a pineapple cake mix that had expired in December. I knew that was only the "best by" date but wanted to use it. I had sliced pineapple in the pantry so I made a pineapple upside down cake. 

Over the weekend we had a pizza given to us by a neighbor and sandwiches.  Monday's meal was chicken tenders and potato wedges.  Yesterday W had a work lunch so I ate leftovers.  Last night we had cheeseburgers. 

Today we picked up a few groceries.  Normally this is a time when we might eat out.  We came home and had tuna sandwiches and chips.  Supper will be a pizza.

I spent $16 this week.  I purchased bananas, tangerines, peanut butter chips, two bags of potato chips, ice cream, and a frozen pizza.  The ice cream and pizza were on clearance.  W loves ice cream, and it was a nice treat.  The pizza was $2 so we decided to give it a try. I was happy to come in under budget even with a couple of unplanned purchases.

You are doing great with your pantry challenge. I'm going to try and do the same for the rest of the month.
