Collecting Recipes

The first time I attempted a three month pantry challenge it took me six months to get ready.  Fortunately this time is much easier and over the next few days I’ll be posting the steps that I take.

Step One – I collect all the recipes in my cookbook that include legumes, grains, and rice, then choose 30 and put them on a chart (Click here to see the chart from a previous post.)  I only plan dinners.  I’m sure there are people who cook more than one meal a day, not me.  Breakfast and lunches consist of toast and fruit, cereal, peanut butter, canned soup/chilli, or leftovers.  I just make sure to have some quick meals in the food storage.

I’m listing my recipe choices here and I’ll try to add links to the recipes over the next three months:
