Mushroom and Chickpea Saute

Mushroom and Chickpea Saute

We’re drowning over here. Friday I decided it was time to start bringing the contents of the storage unit over to the house to get them organized and properly packed for the move. One car load of stuff, three large trash cans of garbage later, and the chaos ensued. My cousin came to pick upContinue Reading

Chipotle Marinated Flank Steak

The jars are back. I don’t know where they came from or who let them in, but the emptiness of the fridge is overshadowed by a door full of jars. Tahini, horseradish, hoisin, soy, chipotle: all lined up proudly in the door waiting to be used. With one month left in DC, we may justContinue Reading

Prosciutto and Herb Stuffed Chicken Thighs

We’re in full scale pantry clean out mode over here. This Saturday marks six Saturday’s until we’ll be packing up the Penske and heading South. I don’t anticipate it will take that long to eat through the pantry (in fact the shelves are already looking pretty bare) but, I’ve been really focused on using upContinue Reading

Skillet Enchiladas

Skillet Enchiladas

Thursday we’ll own a house. Excuse my absence and sporadic posting this week (month). Even though this isn’t the first time I’ve gone through the home purchase process (I owned a condo before M and I met), it’s far more overwhelming this time. It’s not just the size of the purchase, but it’s the lengthContinue Reading

Spicy Sausage Pasta

Spicy Sausage Pasta

I used to really love grocery shopping, but it’s become more and more of a chore. I think meal planning, compounded with cooking, compounded with cleaning, compounded with shopping, compounded with blogging, has just pushed me over the edge. Luckily, Harris Teeter offers an “Express Lane” service. You go online, select the products you wantContinue Reading

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Do you guys watch the TV show Chopped? I’m a huge fan. I love seeing what is in the mystery baskets and how the chefs combine ingredients that don’t seem to go together at all into something that looks absolutely delicious. When M and I returned home from seeing our soon-to-be house, my pantry wasContinue Reading

Five for Friday: Five Steps to Prep Your Freezer for a Pantry Clean Out

Five for Friday: Five Steps to Prep Your Freezer for a Pantry Clean Out

Before this pantry challenge kicked off, it was time to clean out and inventory my freezer. I’ve mentioned the inventory list I keep on the fridge before, and every few weeks, it needs to be rewritten due to the scribbles and cross-outs that result from using up items. It really helps me remember what IContinue Reading

Greek Pesto Pasta Salad

Greek Pesto Pasta Salad

Alternatively titled: Six Jar Clean Out Salad. The jars. So many jars. Jars in the fridge. Jars in the pantry. Jars in the spice cabinet. It was time to do a little pantry re-organization to reassess what was left for the pantry challenge. The answer? All the ingredients needed to make an awesome pasta salad.Continue Reading

Vegetarian Stir Fry

Vegetarian Stir Fry

To me, stir fries are like salads. You don’t really need a recipe. Just toss a bunch of stuff that goes well together into a pan and 10 minutes later, Viola! Dinner. I found a package of tofu in the back of the fridge. I was glad to see it because protein-wise, this pantry challengeContinue Reading

Mustard Crusted Salmon with Cannellini Bean and Escarole Ragu

Mustard Crusted Salmon with Cannellini Bean and Escarole Ragu

I think my favorite part of the Pantry Clean Out Challenge is trying to recall why exactly I purchased a certain ingredient. Cannellini beans, for example. M doesn’t eat them, so I typically don’t cook with them. Yet I still find cans of them in my pantry. Perhaps I was going to give this saladContinue Reading
