Pantry inventory.....

I said I wasn't going to do it, but I couldn't take the mess anymore. I figured that once I had it clean and organized, it wouldn't take much more to inventory the contents, so I just went for it. As you will see below, we seem to have a thing for condiments. :-) I'm going to try to update this as I use things, too.

Holy moly, lol!

I'm glad you listed what you have in your pantry, though, because I didn't really want to give meal suggestion ideas based on just what was in your freezer. I was thinking that if you are trying to save some money while using what you have, I don't want to suggest something that you'll have to run to the store to pick up a couple of ingredients to make.

I'll have to look through your lists over the next couple of days and then post another comment or two! :)

Thanks, Tammy. I'd love to have some recipes from you. :-)

Oh, and just so you know, I bought 4 of the small cans of diced green chilies tonight. I needed one for the chimichangas (I haven't made those yet) and figured I would buy a few extra because we love green chilies. :-)

I am trying to plan based on what I have, but usually have to buy a few things each week. For instance, the green chilies, salad, and sour cream are what I needed this week. Of course I picked up a few other things, but those are the things I needed for the meals I planned.

Oh, I also have lots of eggs and milk in the fridge!

I want to come live at your house! I was reading your list thinking of all the things I would make! :-)
