2 gallons milk
3 dozen eggs
chicken bullion
celery
onions
garlic
hamburger buns

One month pantry challenge

It's that time again. My freezer is packed. My pantry is overflowing.

One month Pantry Challenge it is!

From September 15th - October 15th, I will do my best to use mostly what I already have around. Obviously I will need to buy milk and some other fresh items, but I have GOT to clean out these freezers in prep for a deer!

Meal plan items coming up soon!
