Yes. I made up a word.
Pantrifying: The art of stocking a pantry for times of famine, hungry teenagers, and
lazy busy momma's.
Noah Webster would be proud.
The zucchini got away from me this week. In fact, I have a huge pile of over-sized squash that is going to be grated and fed to the goats and a hormone-crazed momma-to-be.

The cravings are starting to get serious. I didn't have the heart to tell her that her "snack" may or may not have been a relative of hers.
I'm canning like a woman gone mad. I love canning season, but I really love canning season when the season actually cooperates with my schedule.
Currently the season and I are at odds.
I did find organic heirloom tomatoes on "The Island" at a farm called Bella Organics. I'm pretty sure that Green Zebra tomatoes are my favorite.
Of course, the Purple Cherokee, Orange Fleshed Purple Smudge, and German Red Strawberry tomatoes are my favorites too.
I'm fickle that way.
Together with peppers, onions, and cilantro, they make Cultured Salsa.
Otherwise known as MAGIC. *sigh*
I'll share the recipe tomorrow. ☺
As you know, I've been on a couponing kick lately. My "plan", such as I'm capable of, is to stock the pantry with foods that we'll actually use.
|Organic pasta sauce on "reduced for quick sale"~17 quart jars for just $28.73. Regular price~$57.63|
|Beans were only $1/can. Good thing we like beans.|
|Buying by the case can result in huge savings. |
|Even during canning season, look for special deals to fill in the gaps.|
Just make sure to save room for the pickles.
If Tilly-mook gets another craving, I'll be prepared.
