Pantry Challenge Day 3

Just a short update on today's meals
Breakfast was the same as yesterday
Lunch- husband took the same thing except had ham and jalapeno cheese sandwiches on homemade buns for his main course.  I had a peanut butter sandwich and fresh pineapple.
Supper- a big green salad and homemade sausage potato soup, sort of like Olive Gardens, but this batch was spicier and really good and crackers.  

I've also been doing a sort of use it up challenge in my craft room.  
This week, I sewed up curtains for our living room, breakfast room and master bedroom- and used fabric that was bought months ago.  I'll post pictures later.  
I am also working on a picture for the laundry room- also with supplies on hand.  


  1. thrifty, thrifty and very nifty! ha. :)

  2. I tried a recipe from pinterest tonight. My first. WOOWEE! Talk about sweet. Am going to blog about it tomorrow. Chocolate Coke Cake!!

  3. You are doing great! Your meals sound yummy. We had a gift card to Olive Garden and went for lunch on New Year's Day. We had some of that sausage soup.

    I've been using what I have in my fabric stash to make things too instead of buying new. I have fabric to make some pillows and also a shower curtain. Looking forward to seeing your curtains!

  4. I am looking forward to getting my craft area together so I can start creating. I am itching to hear the hum of the sewing machine!

  5. Okay Rhonda, curiosity has me going, the picture you are working on for Laundry area, you said the other day that you pulled out Plastic canvas, is this picture plastic canvas? If so does it maybe have a saying "A womans work is never done?"


I am so glad you came for a visit today! To answer your question or to reply to a you, I will do them here with the comments.
