Pantry Challenge Day Six

The main problem with trying to use up the food in our house is that I'm having a hard time keeping up with all the dishes. My hands are so dry.
I splurged on a bottle of Fairy dish liquid at the ethnic grocery store so I feel a little pampered while I do a dreaded chore. There's nothing particularly special about this British dish soap. I may as well be using Palmolive. In fact, I might refill the bottle with it.

And also, I made an out loud Christmas wish that I could have a small tv in the kitchen to keep my mind occupied while I did boring chores like chopping veggies or washing baggies. Hubby delivered and I've been happily watching cooking shows on PBS while I drudge away.

Pumpkin was suggested as a high fiber food item for our sick kitty. She turned her nose up to it so I had a mostly full can of pumpkin to use up. Weight Watchers muffins to the rescue. They are baking now. Big Girl requested one in her lunch box tomorrow.

Breakfast- Veg. Bacon and pumpkin muffin, milk and cocoa
Lunch- Cheese and crackers, soup, apple juice
Dinner- Revision Instead of the Pot pie made with leftover roast, side of frozen veg I had planned we're having Crockpot Falafel. Our pitas are getting old and I have all the food in the pantry for this dinner.

I know how you feel. When I go out to eat, I don't wonder about the price of the food, but the price of not having to do dishes that night :)
