garden goodies and using stuff up!

June 4th, 2014 at 03:46 pm

Well, two weeks into the eating out of the pantry challenge and there's finally a small dent in the freezer and some empty shelf space near the home-canned garden goods.

Things are going well.

We have also started reaping harvests from the garden. It's so exciting to see all of your planning grow and end up on the table! We've picked about 3 oz of oregano; 5 oz of mint; 1.63 pounds of salad greens; and 3 pounds of strawberries. It's very exciting.

Tonight, I made shortcake from scratch (using stuff up!) to go with the strawberries for dessert. In the spirit of the pantry challenge, I've also used up a lot of the pasta sauce I canned last year, for a couple batches of lasagna. And, we're eating down the meat from the freezer.
