Pantry Eating Challenge Day 3

The challenge:  to eat from the pantry for the month of January.

By the pantry, I mean the closet with dry food, the shelves with home canned goods and the freezer.  Just a clarification.

Breakfast was blueberry pancakes made from a mix with homecanned blackberry jam and coffee.  I used up all the batter and the leftover pancakes will be my breakfast tomorrow morning.  My little neighbor Hailey and I ate late so no lunch today.  I slept in late this morning...yawn.

Dinner was sliced roast beef leftovers (I froze the rest as I am getting tired of beef) and salad greens that only have a few days left from the refrigerator.  Sharon, a friend, brought over some persimmon cookies last evening and I had a couple with tea for dessert.

Can't say I have made a dent in the pantry yet but it is only day three.  This week I will make a pot of beans and see what else I can come up with.
