January seems to have crept up on us quickly this year. Maybe it is due to the fact we were able to work in the garden through November and even on several warm days in December.
We hope you will join us in our January Pantry Challenge. It's a great way to save money on groceries after the holidays and use up items in your cupboards and freezer that keep getting passed over.
To take the challenge, all you need to do is:
1. Set your time frame (ours is one month).
2. Decide your rules, whether you will allow your- self to go to the store, and what, if any, items you allow yourself to buy (usually we allow ourselves to buy dairy, but we won't buy anything this year).
3. Clean out your cupboards and freezer and make a rough inventory of what you have to work with. Try not to eat all the good stuff in the first week.
For inspiration, you can follow along with us on our journey through the month. We will post recipes, meal ideas, and progress as we go along at www.facebook.com/FundyFarmslocalharvest.
