Yesterday was the first day of the pantry challenge hosted by Jessica from Good Cheap Eats.

Being invited to my parent’s home for New Year’s Day dinner was a real treat. It was a blessing in many ways. We were given the opportunity to visit with family, play games, eat yummy food and celebrate the new year.

Dinner was delicious…

Pork, Hot dogs, and Sauerkraut

Dessert was served later on after a phone call to my daughter out of state, some board games, football, and a  knitting tutorial.

We were also blessed with some leftovers, which means our pantry contents will be able to be stretched even further.

Happy New Year!
