This is on my mind: USE those foodie foods!


Even before accepting the January "shop only from your own pantry" challenge, I'd vowed to finally USE the foodie foodstuffs that I buy but seldom or never use. (Anchovies...what was I thinking?!) Not included in the pic are the curry pastes and coconut oil in the fridge, to name a few. Some items pictured here I just bought...my idea of souvenirs from recent travels. Yes, I will be making my own pasta and tortillas in 2011. I WILL!

Thanks, SouleMama and down---to---earth, for inviting me into this Friday photo sharing. What’s on your mind this moment? Hope to see your link here, on SouleMama or on down---to---earth. TGIF!

Awww thanks for stopping by and for your sweet comment.
Good for you starting the New Year out right. I'm trying to do the same!

dmarie, that is a great idea. I have that kind of food, too, in my house. The problem is, I have bought several pouches of brownie mix, and I don't want to indulge in those too often.

We never have enough curry paste, I can rarely buy coconut oil and I LOVE anchovies! I'd love to get my head into your pantry. Good luck with your challenge.

Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Now that the holidays are past I find I have left over mixed ~match ingredeints that will need a google search of sites to plan something crazy to bake or cook....LOL

Susan said...

That's quite a challenge Dmarie... you're going to produce some interesting recipes.
Now, if I can just get to the bottom of my freezer I think there's still some recognizable food there :)

Have fun and thanks for visiting my blog. Cheers :D

Haha! I have those sort of items lurking in the back of my stockpile pantry. You have made me want to go and pull that all out. Maybe I should send it to you!!! lol!

awesome! I used to make my own pasta and tortillas! I was reading down a little, you are right, the healthier stuff is so expensive. thanks for visiting my heron photo. I was lucky that he stayed as long as he did, he was so mad that I was "stalking" him...

I didn't realise it until I saw your post. Thank you!
And thanks for commenting on my blog, too.

My husband says that I'm probably 3/4 coconut oil by this point. Not only do I use it in most of my cooking, I use it as an all-over moisturizer as well. I love smelling like a tropical lady after I shower! This is a great challenge you've presented for yourself!

Here is my tortilla recipe if interested:

puree the anchovies and makea creamy salad dressing with mayo, olive oil, garlic and vinegar. Surprisingly very yummy! :)

Rural Revival said...

Thanks for your comment, nice to meet you!

Oh, how I would love to make tortillas this year. I've had a press for four year and still haven't used it..yikes!

Be well ~Andrea~

Dmarie said...

thank you, thank you for the comments and suggestions. can't wait to try them out & check out all your blogs for other ideas on how to use my foodstuffs. I didn't know quinoa originated in South America. Love having company in this "eat from your pantry" challenge!

Quinoa is amazing AND a complete protein (especially if you are trying to make more vegetarian meals)!

One of my favorites is quinoa with curry powder, corn, & peas.... but I also like to use it almost the same way I would pasta for a pasta salad.

Broccoli, canned tuna/salmon, whatever veggies you want. I would toss with some olive oil and herbs :)

Thanks for visiting my little blog :) I've found tons of inspiration here on yours so far...so much so that it's been nearly a week since you commented on mine and I always get sidetracked checking out your blog and forgot to thank you!

Dmarie said...

@Shorty, thx for suggestions. have been trying to cook with more curry, so I love that idea. @RoseM, thx!
