ATLfemme is an Extroverted Self-Knowing Money Manager
I’m out of regular rice (still have basmati). I’m down to the last half stick of butter. No eggs. No paper towel. Only 2 rolls of TP left in the house. I still have meat and veggies in the freezer; plenty of canned tomatos; 3 cans of tuna; lots of coconut milk. The pantry is now an interesting mix of luxury items (black truffle sauce, anyone?) with far fewer basic staples.
There’s a pot of what will be chicken stock simmering on the stove, which helped use up the last of the celery. Once it’s finished, I’ll strain it and make chicken & mushroom soup using some of the dried mushrooms I have on had (there’s at least 3 varieties). That should get me through the weekend’s meals. I can add in some orzo for body, which I also have on hand.
Overall, part of me finds this nerve-wracking and part of me likes the challenge.
