So Will Samson
has challenged the blogging world to the Pantry Challenge
. What is this you might ask? Well the idea is that as the richest people in the world (we blog, we have computers, we have pantries) one of the signs of our wealth is the extra food we have in the house. The challenge is - how long can your family eat from the food in our house without going to grocery store?
Here are the rules:
*The contest begins with breakfast tomorrow, Wednesday, 17 January. If you came
here late, bummer.
*You are allowed to buy staples, which for this contest we will say are:
4.Any food that is part of a prescribed health regimen
*Other than that, everything you serve should come from your pantry, refrigerator
*You need to record your experience, including the meals you were able to make.
If you are a blogger you need to blog about it.
*The contest ends when the last person playing buys something not on the list.
So I'm intrigued. I want to play. And if you've been to my house recently, you know I need to play. I'll give it a go, and blog about it here. I have no clue how long this will last, but it will be fun to see what I can come up with.
But I have to admit to not fully playing by the rules (does that automatically disqualify me?).
- I will buy food for Emma's birthday party this weekend. I already sent out the invites for dinner and cake...
- I will buy stuff for church (creamer, communion elements)
- I will go out to eat when needed - with the church group, when I'm out of town...
We'll see out it goes. See how quickly I fail or how interesting it gets. Anyone want to play?
