Oh my gosh, that was a long 10 days!
It was quite a challenge NOT going to the grocery store & I can say the hardest part was running out of produce and milk.
It did feel good to whittle down some of the pantry stash – and I actually found myself LIKING the challenge of looking for recipes based on ingredients I already had.
I realized we go through a LOT of buttermilk (waffles, pancakes, cornbread)…but that cooking from your pantry stash can be pretty affordable.
We’re lucky to have a deep freeze in our garage & I stock up on protein when it’s on sale.
Ironically, now that the 10-day pantry challenge is over, I don’t even want to go to the grocery store because we’re in the midst of the coronavirus quarantine, and there’s very little food there anyway!
Yes, I would do a 10-day pantry challenge again. But I’m also ready for things to get back to normal & to resume my regular weekly online grocery delivery full of fresh produce, bread & dairy products!
