Working Pantry Bootcamp: 6/7/21

Are you ready for another week of pantry building?

Let's do it ...

Last week's pantry building entry/assignment was to add something to the freezer part of your pantry ...


I added these bulk packages of broccoli (there are 4 individual packs inside each big bag) from Sam's Club


... and these 5 squash casseroles using squash from our garden.  Recipe can be found HERE.

How did you do?

Our assignment for this week is ...

today is the 7th day of June so the assignment for this week is to add 7 items to your pantry.  They can be for any area of your pantry and can be any thing you use in your pantry.

I can't wait to read about what you add!

  1. I added 12 servings of beef liver to my freezer last week and this morning I added 8 cans of baked beans - so this week's is done.

    1. Margie, it sure is! Good for you, I can go for some baked beans but now that liver ... not so much ... me and liver had a falling out many years ago and parted ways!!!!

  2. Kind of killed two birds with one stone yesterday. For my frozen task from last week, my intent was to add strawberries (coming on in my hometown area), but I didn't get to the farmstand, as planned. Stopped at the grocery store Sunday and found that they had ground beef on sale, but I needed to check my freezer space. Went back and bought a family pack of 80/20 and portioned it into 1/2# packages, as that's what I use most, for the freezer. Added 8 to the freezer and still had some to use for sloppy joes for dinner last night. Tomorrow, the plan is to head to southwest Michigan for strawberries fresh from the farm field. Some will go into the freezer, some will be made into jam, and others will go into strawberry salsa. And, I'll make sure to enjoy some with my grandmother's shortcake recipe.

    1. Lori, strawberries are on their way out in our area, but it was a good season this year. I have never heard of strawberry salsa, I need to research it and find out more about it. You've done well with the challenge, good for you!

    2. The recipe I used was adapted from this one:

  3. I got 10 pounds of ground beef on sale. I made 5 pound into burgers for easy meals on busy nights. The rest got broken up in 1/2 pounds and put in baggies.

  6. Patsy,
    I sent a comment yesterday but I'm not sure it actually went through as internet here is kinda sketchy.
    Anyway, I could not find a case of green beans for week one but managed to come up with 6 cans after going to two stores. My 7 items are: 2 cartons salt, 2 bottles cummin, 1 black pepper, 1 box baking soda, and the additional 2 cans green beans. Also, I'm dehydrating some cilantro.
    Question, I was given a lot of sweet potatoes, but the temp/humidity here isn't good for storing potatoes long term. Do you think I could make up sweet potato pie filling and freeze that in quart bags? Would the texture be good? I have never frozen any type of potato.

    1. I bake sweet potatoes and then freeze them whole. They keep for months and can be thawed and used any way you would use cooked sweet potatoes.

      Delete
    2. You did really good for this week's challenge! As for the sweet potato pie filling, yes you can. The texture might be a little different, but it shouldn't be much!

    3. Lana, I do the same, never had a problem with the taste or texture.

    4. Thank you for the replies. I'm definitely going to try it.
