July's Personal Challenge

This month we will be eating out of the pantry, rather than purchasing items for meals. We do have quite a lot stockpiled, so it shouldn't be too awful. :o) I'll need to buy some things, of course, but I'm going to try to buy only what I must.

So far this month, I've spent $4, on coffee and whipped cream (to go with pound cake and strawberries). Tomorrow we should finish off our July 4th feast, and I'll need to cook something. At the moment, I'm thinking I'll make zucchini pasta and garlic with cheesy garlic biscuits. But I could change my mind tomorrow when I start poking around in the pantry. :o) That's exactly how we ended up with pound cake and strawberries today. I found them both in the back of the freezer!

I've been trying to keep up with my cooking and spending anyway, due to the yahoogroup discussion, but I have a feeling that this month will be all about creative cooking!
