Pantry Poker




Would you want to have to make a meal right now made solely out of what you currently have stocked in your pantry and refrigerator? Could you?

The above picture is of the lunch I made today for my husband and myself, made entirely out of what I already had on hand. It consists of pasta, black beans, corn, onion, garlic, tomatoes, and chipotles and cost approximately $2.26. That actually is kind of on the expensive side of things, but the pasta is a specialty pasta from the local farmer's market and was far and away the most expensive part of lunch. I could have just as easily used a box of pasta purchased from my local grocery store at 1/4 the cost, but I do try to support local merchants when I can.

While I do not always cook lunch for myself (and/or my husband), I do try to keep a well-stocked pantry which will allow me to throw something together when I need to.

Are you interested in learning how to supply your pantry? Would you like to be able to "throw together" a meal with ingredients you already have on hand? Are you interested in gaining control over your food budget? Would you like to lose weight?

If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, please email me at: teresameccles@gmail.com for more information.
