Day 21 Pantry Challenge.
10 more days until I get grocery money. Potato chips, I am craving potato chips.
10 more MONTHS of food in the pantry/freezer...but not enough potato chips....
I vacuumed bagged shredded pork and ham slices and ham chunks. Which means there are now 8 more meals in the freezer.
Have different broths in the frig for the fat to harden for me to de-fat tomorrow and can the broth. I will strain the fat into ice cube trays and freeze it then bag it when it's frozen (and LABEL). That shout was at myself for not labeling another batch. I had to melt a cube and taste it to figure out what it was.
Tonight I cooked green beans and diced potato and ham chunks together. As a child this would have been the meal Mother put on the table with corn bread. But hubby grew up on the farm with beef and pork always in the freezer so he isn't satisfied with that type of dish so I grilled ham and cheese sandwiches to go with it. He was happy. Tomorrow I will have the leftover green beans with leftover corn bread for lunch.
I can tell you now with the weather we are having right now that we will be having chili that I canned last month for dinner tomorrow. I just looked at our weather gauge (we live on a farm in the boonies) and the wind chill is a minus 25.
I will be doing some baking tomorrow. Good way to help keep the house warm by using the oven.
Stay safe, stay warm.
