Store Cupboard Chronicles: week 3

Just a quick note to let you know how the store cupboard challenge is going!

...and the answer is pretty good actually!

I had a funny week last week - being off sick with work meant I was able to cook a lot more...but then I had my folks down for the weekend, which meant we ended up eating out a lot. I have to say the week ended better than it started!!

My stocks are definitely getting much lower - I actually had to buy rice to go with a curry - when I started I had about 7 packs of rice of varying fullnesses! I have a few things I still want to make from my store cupboard, so I have decided I'm going to do one more week - to make it a whole month of store cupboard cooking!

I love whittling down the pantry. Makes me feel like I'm cleansing my kitchen. Out with the old, in with the new!

I'm feeling more motivated to clear out some of the "very interesting things" I've picked up with full intent to create something. I should have long ago challenged you to a store cupboard throwdown :). I'm sure I would have lost.
