Eating from my Pantry

November 5th, 2007 at 12:57 am

My goal this month is to eat strictly from my pantry. I've got a lot of food sitting around that I should eat up. I'm really bad about stocking up when I see bargains, and then not eating those things. So, I'm clearing some things out this month.

Tonight, I made a great rice and bean casserole with one of the two open boxes of brown instant rice I have. I was surprised this turned out so tasty, as I wasn't working from a recipe. I just cooked the brown rice and mixed that with canned red beans, canned tomatoes, and some frozen corn. I also threw in a little bit of shredded mozzarella cheese I had left over. Spiced it with a sample of Old Bay seasoning I got from work and baked it for about 35 minutes.

I'll probably be eating this for most of the week since it was a huge batch. Next time I make this, I'll use less rice (2 servings instead of 4).

    I am trying to do the same by eating out of my pantry and freezer. It is hard to pass up a good deal, but I have more than enough "deals" on hand to last this month.
