Uh oh. It's that time again. My pantry is overflowing and I overspent my grocery budget this month by $182. I admit to grocery shopping for entertainment on at least 4 occasions this month. Time for a pantry challenge!!!
Last November I did the same thing. Maybe there's just something about November that makes me ignore my grocery budget? Probably my hibernation instincts kicking in.
Anyways, I have split peas and brown rice in the crockpot soaking right now. My lunch is packed, so there's no excuse for buying lunch at work tomorrow. Next I have to decide if bread and/or kids lunch stuff is an exception to the pantry challenge rule or not. Probably not.
And I might need an exception to stock up on the Yogi Teas that are on sale this month. Wish me luck!
