Dried Figs - I did make fig jam +1
Semolina Flour - I did not use it -1
Whole wheat spaghetti - I made spaghetti with my version of eggplant parm+1
Coconut - Coconut sponge cake with a mango mouse +1
Imitation cream cheese - I cheated and used this for a cream cheese frosting +1

Total: +7

Week 4 Ingredients
Semolina Flour
Can of Cranberries
Vienna Sausage (we always have a stock of this stuff)
Tempura Batter
Chocolate Chips

Spaghetti with meatballs and eggplant parm

  1. The Pantry Clean Out Challange seems like a great idea! I should try. I always have so much stuff in my pantry that I forget about

  2. Spaghetti with meatballs looks heavenly! Talk about the pantry clean-up, I should start mine too.

  3. Thanks for the add! Wow - this is something I really need to do myself as well. Good idea!

  4. If any of you would like to join me, I would love to compile all the posts together track our progress.

  5. Yummy cake with mango mousse, I'm not sure I have the ingredients for something this good sitting in my pantry!

  6. @pancheco patty - trust me I have the most randsom stuff in my pantry.

  7. I need to clean out the pantry, too. Every few months, I found a lot of unuse and waste ingredients... especially flour type.
    Wow the spaghetti looks so yummy :)

  8. Wow I want that sponge cake:) What a creative way to make use of a cleaning spree/challenge:)

  9. Coconut sponge cake with mango mousse sounds delicious :)
