I am doing well with the modified pantry challenge so far and did not buy any groceries this week. Yeah! I also decided to go through what I had so I could make better use of it. I tossed a bunch of shriveled potatoes and some bad garlic. I did manage to save a dozen heads which I roasted. Ten of those went into the freezer and I kept two out to use this week.
W had mentioned wanting tacos, and I had no shells or tortillas. I could have made some but did not have enough time. Instead I went with nachos which used up some tortilla chips. I always make my own taco seasoning from spices I keep on hand. This time I opted to make two pounds of taco seasoned meat. One-fourth of it was used for nachos, and I put three containers in the freezer for future, quick meals.
Using up stuff in the kitchen has spread to other parts of the house. I spent some time making envelopes out of some wallpaper samples. Not only do I have something useful, I am getting the wallpaper books out of the house.
