Update - Pantry Stretch Challenge!

Well I made it!!! It's Saturday and we avoided buying major groceries until today. Thursday night we had Sloppy Joes and last night we made spaghetti. The only meal that wasn't up to par was the Sloppy Joe Meal. I had no tomato paste or sauce (or catsup!) so I tried a can of tomato soup. The effect wasn't awful, just not very good either. Anyway it all worked out and we stretched our budget and our food just a few more days. Hurray for us!

Soup is usually to sweet for sloppy joe's but we like it for pizza sauce. Good job on your challenge!!

Well, at least it was edible. We used to mix hamburger, onion, bell pepper, and cheese together for yummy "pepper steak" sandwiches.
