cash cook challenge update!

Well, I almost made it! I'm down to my last weekday of not eating out. So far this week, everything I've consumed has come from my fridge, freeze, pantry, friends, or unsuspecting co-workers. Here are the high-lights:

Moment to remember: My delicious chili! I've never made chili before; it was surprisingly easy, healthy and scrumptious.

Moment to forget: Forgetting my Nalgene and filling up an empty water bottle with OJ from the fridge in the faculty lounge in order to prevent using the vending machine for a drink.

So, it's nearly the end of the week and I'm running really low on supplies. My only option for dinner is pancake mix. While I love the idea of brinner (breakfast for dinner), I am a little nervous that the expiration date on the pancake mix box reads Sept. 2007.

If I post again soon, I'll be living proof that expiration dates are nothing but cheap threats from major food processing companies to discourage penny pinching teachers such as me.

How was your brinner?

We're actually at the point of trying to eat everything out of our fridge and pantry so we don't have to move it with us to the new house.

Plus, my plan is to only eat frozen dinners while Chris is out to sea. It's cheaper and hopefully I'll gain fewer pounds that way. So all food must go before he goes!
