  • Pantry Challenge – Week 2 Update

    Ostensibly, I’ve joined the Pantry Challenge at Good Cheap Eats, with the goal of using up some random ingredients I have on hand:

    Ronzoni Healthy Harvest egg noodles
    Sweetened condensed milk
    Canned cannelli beans
    Cornmeal
    Jam
    Anchovies

    From this list, I used all of two cans of cannellini beans last week.

    Ahem.

    I’d intended to use some cornmeal to make cornbread, but ended up making cream biscuits instead to use up some cream that was about to expire. And I didn’t do any baking either.

    So . . . I have two more weeks left to this pantry challenge, and I’ve got quite a few things still left to use up. I’m going to try Gina’s Mushroom Artichoke Chicken, which sounds really good, and serve it with some egg noodles. I also foresee a caesar salad (anchovies) and cereal bars (jam) in our future. But obviously I’m going to have to kick things into high gear if I want to have these things used up by the end of the month!
