This is my last week of school. I am so looking forward to having my life back, but even more, I’m looking forward to seeing what all of you are up to. Aso, I am in a clearing-the-deck kind of mood. I’m going to clean my house, sell some of my book overflow, and basically reclaim the space I have been treating like a hotel for the past two years.
First project? To see how long I can go cooking with only what’s stored up in my cupboards, with the addition of fresh produce, eggs/milk, and coffee. Should be interesting, at least to me, and it’ll be a good way to get back in the habit of daily posts. This’ll kind of be an extreme version of my Pantry Cooking Month jags.
My mom is an incredibly good pantry cook. These days, she has enough money to have overflowing pantries (seriously — it’s a problem), but when I was in my teens, we had very little money, and mom remembers the days when she fed my brothers pancakes for dinner, because that’s about all there was.
This experiment is in her honor. Love you, mom!
