pantry challenge week!!!!

this morning, i was checking out some of my favorite blogs and i came across the pantry challenge on 5dollardinners.com - i am so TOTALLY in.

we have been working on spending as little as possible on groceries so we can save that money for our family vacations this summer. {i am so ready!!!}

we have spent around $35 - i said earlier that my goal was staying under $100 but i think i need to change it. i am confident we can keep it under $60.

what? i am crazy? {probably but don't answer that.} haha

we truly have a good amount of food in the stockpile, freezers and cupboards.

we need to use it up.

i am in the mood to make lots of things from scratch.

i am in the mood to save money.

i am in the mood to be creative.

are you in the mood?

join this challenge with me. one week. pantry challenge. use what you have.

{i will be purchasing milk and anything else we desperately need.}

tonight we had scrambled eggs, homemade biscuits (yummy!) and baked sausage patties.




for the scrambled eggs - i used 7 eggs and some buttermilk. sausage patties were baked in the oven at 350 F for 20 minutes (flipping after 10 minutes.)

Easy Biscuits (cannot remember where i got this recipe)

2 cups flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp kosher salt
6 tbsp cold unsalted butter
1 cup buttermilk

preheat oven 350 F.

mix first four ingredients together. cut in the butter until it resembles crumbs. carefully mix in the buttermilk - making sure you do not over mix.

flour a flat surface. roll out dough and use a biscuit cutter (or cookie cutter) to cut out biscuits.

{i made thinner biscuits than normal so we could have enough for two meals.}

bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown on top.

tomorrow we will be having breakfast for dinner but i may switch out the eggs for hashbrowns. we have a lot of gardening work to do so we will need the extra carbs. :D

what are you having? comment below!
