Pantry Challenge Update 1

Hey guys! I just wanted to give you a quick update on my pantry challenge that I announced at the end of January. I must admit I have not been perfect in the challenge. I have not been to the grocery store since starting the challenge and I have had a lot of fun diving into the pantry.

For examples, I have made tacos:

I made a big pot of curry at one point:

And not going to the grocery store has helped me to reduce my food expenses quite a bit. I haven’t done the math but it is definitely true.

Where I cheated is I went to Trader Joe’s once around the 11th because I needed some of my Indian meals I like for lunches and some fresh veggies. So technically I lasted 12 days with no grocery shopping of any kind, but have made it 19 without going to a grocery store!

Even though I wasn’t perfect I am glad I have done the challenge and want to keep it up! Over the next few weeks I am going to try and eat out even less than I have. Baby steps!

What do you think about my progress? Are you impressed? 🙂

Sunday Sit Down with the Lawn Gnome

Hey guys! I had a really cool experience on Sunday. My friend Steve (aka The Lawn Gnome) has started a new series on his youtube channel called Sunday Sit Downs and he gave me the honor of being his first guest!

It was so much fun being on Steve’s show and we chatted like old friends, which is what we are. If he and his wife ever came out to Utah I hope he would look me up and vice versa. You really do get to make friends and support each other through this crazy thing called youtube. I liked our discussion about the histories of our channels and what we’ve learned along the way. It made me feel very nostalgic because we have been friends since the very beginning.

Please give it a listen and let me know what you think! And subscribe to Steve’s channel. He has great content on everything from Disney to Batman.
