Menu & Pantry Challenge

Still Life with Various Types of Beans


No I haven't fallen off the menu planning wagon. I went for a small shop while I was buying deb dresses and shoes and other evening dresses etc. Mostly I bought the ingredients for tuna casserole we were to have that night as I would be home after the shops closed. I asked my husband to buy ingredients for the Greek Salad and the pies and things for when he was away on a business trip, or a trip for work to learn things. Obviously I have spent modest amount on the dresses, but since I don't usually do that sort of thing, I am doing a pantry challenge so my son can come home for the weekend as well, as it is Labour Day and Canberra Day, which is nice, it doesn't usually happen that way. Maybe it will again next year. I know I looked for borlotti beans recipes, as I always try to keep borlotti, lentils, chickpeas and butter beans in the pantry, 2 cans of each for recipes for 6 people.
