so there's this new trend around the blogosphere (here, for example), inspired by eGullet, about cooking with only what you have in the pantry... a liquidation of stock-ups, if you will.
i'd like to give a big, warm, enthusiastic welcome to everyone involved in this new endeavor: you are now officially filling the role of a car-deprived college student in the middle of february when there is no local produce in PA.
=) it's a great place to be.
about every 2-ish weeks, the bread starts to go stale, the lettuce starts to wilt, the egg carton starts to have more empty spaces, and the canned veggies and tuna start to be opened and mixed with various spices, grains, and other things on the verge of shelf-life.
i've decided to relish in the foodie world's newfound appreciation of this event (which i am naming "operation liquidation") by forgoing the grocery store until saturday (i was going to go tonight) and participating! it'll be a good way to hear about some new "staple" recipes and ways to use up canned corn, as well as an excuse for me to share my less-than-glamourous recipes.
i will go retro-post with 2 meals from the past few nights:
