I've made a small dent

So I am a little over a week into my pantry challenge so I thought I would share what we've eaten the last little bit. This is dinners only.

Sept 15 - Mexican Casserole
16 - Chicken wings and veggies
17 - Chicken and rice casserole, sliced cucumbers and carrots, green bean casserole
18 - leftovers
19 - shredded chicken taco salad
20 - Burritos and other leftovers
21 - BBQ chicken, veggie tien, creamed corn, rolls
22 - breakfast burritos
23 - chicken coconut curry soup (did not go over well, threw the rest away)
24 - hamburgers with fries

I went to the grocery store this morning because I was out of milk and eggs. I spent $18 on the following:

2 gallons milk
3 dozen eggs
chicken bullion
celery
onions
garlic
hamburger buns
frozen juice (.50 each for 100% juice!)

I made 4 loaves of homemade bread yesterday so we could have bread to eat.

The really cool thing about where I live now is that everyone here is an amazing gardener! In the last week alone I have been given:

yellow squash
15 ears of corn
box of tomatoes (literally at least 25 pounds)
3 ice cream buckets full of plums
3 FULL laundry baskets of apples (made 3 gallons homemade cider, eating the rest)
bag of pears
zuchinni
potatoes (my friends dad is a potato farmer)

AND we have been given permission to "glean" the potato fields after harvest the next 2 weeks AND my neighbor's grandma has 4 apple trees she isn't going to use. Guess who is making applesauce?

What is Stitch Fix? Review #1

Today I got my very first stitch fix and I'm so excited! First of all, what is it?

It's a monthly subscription clothing box. You pay $20 for a stylist to pick out some clothes for you based on height, preference, what you post on your Pinterest board, etc. They send you 5 items to try on at home with things you already own and you can pick whatever ones you want to keep. The $20 works as a credit toward anything you keep. You send back the rest and wait for your next box!

I decided to try this out because I don't really have stores for clothes shopping in my area. Plus, it's fun!

Do you want to try it out? Check it out here.

Okay, here is what I got in my first box:


They always send this cool styling card to show how to wear the clothes.

Don't mind my crazy face. These are the Mavi Freida Skinny Jeans.

Paired with the Pixley Tracy Dot Print Cross Back Knit Top

Added my jacket and the Octavia Jolene Zipper Flap Crossbody Bag.

Then I decided to pair with a skirt and …
