About Pantry Raid
I’m a 30-something Chicagoan trying desperately to use up the assorted vinegars, spices and other accoutrements amassed in my pantry after many years of exploring mylove of food. My efforts will be captured here – and my goal is to show my husband that yes, that jar of harissa sitting on the shelf unopened for months on end really WAS necessary.
In this economy, couldn’t we all use a lesson in frugality?
So what’s the deal with the lame name? Ok, so a little while back I entered a chili contest. I was supposed to supply a name for my concoction, however, I’m not the most creative person. So I racked my brain trying to come up with something clever (perhaps a little better than My Chili) and at the eleventh hour came up with Pantry Raid – an accurate description in my mind. Of course, my handwriting is abyssmal and it became known as panty raid. Ah, such is life (perhaps this says more about my co-workers than me…). Anyway, I determined to co-op the name for my blogging endeavor. Again, an accurate description for my journey.
