I'm issuing a challenge!

Can you live out of the pantry, freezer and frige for one week?

I'm going to, starting tomorrow (MONDAY) and wanted to know who wants to join me? You may spend only $5.00 for food stuff. Period. The rest of the meals, snacks, whatever have to be from whats on hand in the house. (Quick! go shopping today! LOL) .
If you want to play along, leave a comment here.

Also, just so we're not looking into our pantry and seeing only creamed corn and potato chips, and in the freezer some ground beef. (all hypothetical, of course!) if you need help coming up with recipes for what you have on hand, comment on it and let's all help each other out with some ideas or recipes.

Sound like fun? This is going from Monday to Sunday (yeah, I know, not a full week but almost) On the Monday after that, I'll put up a McLinky and we can all link up and tell how our week went.
So, who's in? I'll be doing PANTRY CHALLENGEs through the year, so if you didn't get in on this one, just keep checking back.
Oh, and if you'd like to take the button up top, and link back here, PLEASE feel free! The more the merrier!

Ok, now, comment and tell all who is in!


  1. This is good time for me to participate because pay day is Friday and I don't plan to shop until then...if we survive i will link

  2. Sounds good to me. Better go buy that milk I need. LOL

  3. oooh this is so enticing - but it's not a 'good' week for us. I will do this tho' at some point soon! ;)

  4. ugh no that would never work. One (me) gluten free with celiac, three starving (always) teenagers & an adopted 6 year old for the week... oh & my freezer is busted! nope sounds like a great idea but I can't pull it off!

  5. I have actually been doing this since Friday by default. We are short between pay periods so I didn't do my regular shopping. My pantry and freezer are good so far. I made brownies tonight for treats. We shall see how the rest of the week pans out.

  6. New follower here! I'm in and starting today. Woo hoo! Look out creamed corn, we're about to become good friends.

    Lots of yummy love,
    Alex aka Ma, What's For Dinner

  7. I'm in! I think this is a great idea.

  8. Hi- Just found your blog and now I am a subscriber. Love this pantry challenge! I plan to do this in the near future. I will keep reading your blog and will join in next time. This week won't work for me.

  9. woo hoo just checking in to tell you we are on day 3 of pantry and freezer

    You are invited to visit my new blog, you can get there by my main blog from yesterday's post, I will be having contests over there. it may interest you.

  10. Yes, but we'd have some weird combinations :) About 6 months ago we worked to get our pantry down to something manageable. We found out-of-date foods, triplicates, and more because it'd gotten out of hand.

    Love your blog (especially because it's pink! :)


I love your sweet comments and read them all. Please let me know you were here!
