Table Talk » Cook with What You Have Challenge - Day 6 Pizza Night

It's Friday and those who know me know that Friday is homemade pizza night. Tonight was no exception. I made two pizzas tonight, a spinach, roasted onion, feta, and kalamata olive pizza for me. And a gluten-free mushroom and onion pizza for a friend who joined me for dinner. For the gluten-free pizza, I used a bag of Bob's Red Mill Pizza mix that I've been wanted to test using flax eggs. My friend brought salad fixings, to which I contributed a cucumber, and we had pizza and salad. I had some gluten-free chocolate chip cookie dough left over from Tuesday's cook date, so I made her some cookies to take home. She also took home the rest of her pizza and the salad that we didn't finish. I should have made two thinner pizzas from the gluten-free mix. The pizza was a little thicker than I wanted it to be, but otherwise, my friend liked it. (I didn't tell her that I was experimenting with making it egg-free.)

I didn't take any pictures tonight.

I also went through my pantry today and discarded expired items: four cans of evaporated milk that were hiding way in the back, a bottle of salad dressing, and a jar of spreadable fruit. I consolidated my open rice, grain, and pasta packages. I set aside a few items that I know I won't use to take to the food pantry: a jar of yellow mustard (I hate yellow mustard, how did that get in my pantry?), two boxes of elbow macaroni, a box of couscous, apple juice, a box of gingersnaps that I bought for a holiday recipe that I never made, and a few other things.

Then I planned pantry meals for next week. Other than beef, which I don't want to eat more than once a week, I don't have a lot of meat in the freezer, but I have enough for next week's dinners. After that, there are some frozen meals to use up.

I'm going out to dinner tomorrow night, and but will be eating from the pantry for breakfast, lunch, and snacks. My next pantry dinner will be Sunday night.

Good job on the organizing. lol, I am not sure that the food pantry will really want what I have to donate. I hate yellow mustard, too.

This is soooo motivating. My pantry is a nightmare. Between my own foodie weaknesses and my biz there is WAY TOO MUCH STUFF lingering in there.
I'm doing the "Patty" thing. Thanks, as always.
