  1. Fun challenge!! I 'accidently' accomplished this on Monday. I had to be 'in the city' for a doctor appt and stopped at the Asian store. I picked up rice noodles (n). I try to stock up for 4-6 months when visit the Asian store. I also picked up egg roll wrappers and sauce. Love these challenges!

    1. Chef Owings, I really don't know why yeast has gotten so hard to find, but it sounds like you're covered for a while and thanks to you, your neighbor is too!

  4. My middle name is Theresa, so I needed an H item. We grow horseradish which we harvest every fall. We then grate it and freeze it. It will last this way for about a year. Throughout the year we take some out and make a prepared horseradish. This will last in the fridge for about 2-3 months. I made some Monday. Prepared horseradish does not freeze well.

    1. Mary, it's good to know that you can grate and freeze horseradish. I've got horseradish growing this year too!

  5. Patsy,
    Your challenge sounded like fun but I had to do a substitute challenge instead.
    We were able to add to our pantry staple goods.....things such as flour, sugar, evaporated milk and crushed tomatoes.
    Also I canned 9 more pints of butter beans.
    It sounds like you are working hard!

  6. Hi Patsy and thank you for another boot camp pantry challenge :) .

    Although my second letter of my middle name is E I struggled with that so I went for R instead and bought a whole rump that I saw on super special for $10 kg that weighed 5.26 kg.

    We will slice this up to fill up our steak freezer drawer up again and saved $63.12 over prices we saw elsewhere too :).

    Have a great week ahead everyone.

    Lorna.

    1. Lorna, that's quite a savings, good for you! Always feel free to substitute in any of the challenges, the end result of all the challenges is to motivate us to build up our pantries!

  7. Middle name: Michelle...other than the obvious ice-cream, icing, and iced cookies, I was stumped and had to do a search of groceries/ingredients that start with the letter "i". Instant rice was a good one, but that was all that would work for my family. So, we brainstormed "c" the second letter of our last name. We were able to add corn, cucumbers, cereal, cheese, cream cheese, cottage cheese, and Craisons. But the funniest thing on the grocery list came from our youngest, C-weed! We did not purchase any of that for our pantry :).

    1. Leigh, how funny, c-weed! I love that your family is getting involved in the challenges. You all did good!

  8. Like Leigh, I too had to do a search for ideas that started with the letter A (middle name: Hazel, named after my grandma). There were obvious ones, like apples and asparagus, but it's not the season for them right now. I assure you, apple's will be added later, though! So after checking my list of pantry items I want to add, I realized All Purpose Flour would fit the bill! We decided not to go to Costco this week, however. Since they have it at the best price in bulk, the purchase will be delayed, but definitely will be added as soon as I get the chance!

  9. Neither I nor any of my siblings have a middle name. Mom had 7 and she said hat was enough for any family! So, I decided to go with the second letter of my last name which is a "C".
    Today I bought a coleslaw mix, a cucumber, cauliflower & clam juice!

    1. Margie, that's a good substitution you made on the letter! You got some yummy things for your pantry.

  10. The second letter of my middle name is A, and that's a hard one. Apples (along with applesauce) and apricots will be added to my pantry when they come into season in the next couple of months. So, what can I add to my pantry? How about ADDITIONAL items that will be helpful in building my pantry? I added an additional door mounted rack for holding additional canned goods, and I added a box of half-pint canning jars, and a box of pint jars. Both will be helpful when I can applesauce, apple slices, apricots, and additional goods (stewed tomatoes, spaghetti sauce, salsa, etc.), when the variety of farm stand produce gets going.
    Best,
    Lori K
