A little under two months ago, I made a Use It Up Challenge for myself. I wrote a list of things I needed to use up in my pantry and then set about using them. Here’s an update:
.25 c soy flour—I got it for a dish I was making and then didn’t use it.
.75 c dried cranberries
Blackberry tea—“Blackberry tea!” I thought. “That sounds good.” It wasn’t.
1.5 c coconut
1 sample of microwavable hamburger helper I got in the mail.
Half a box falafel
A container half-n-half–Going to go bad soon…
Sprigs of mint
Tomatoes left over from the garden
Leeks left over from the garden
Zucchini left over from the garden
Grapes someone brought me
Plums I bought for a dish and never used
.75 c Coconut milk
Most of a can of chickpeas
Minestrone soup a friend made
Two Boca patties
Frozen tofu—I discovered tofu doesn’t freeze well, so I’ll have to use it as a substitute
Lemon curd I made last winter
Not too bad, really. I should make up some falafel and something with lemon curd and coconut. The salmon patties and plums are probably bad by now. Oh well, I tried.
I really have no idea what to do with that blackberry tea though….
