As I mentioned before I am doing the Zero Food Waste challenge (ZFW) and it has been an experience. At this point I have cut $200 off our monthly grocery budget! That is just nuts! As I mentioned in my last post I over bought on milk the week before and I had a gallon and a half of whole milk that was about to go bad. We won't talk about the number of gallons of milk that have been poured out here in the last month or so because they were past their dates and smelling funny. I had assumed it was because we were not rotating them correctly and the kids were instead opening the new jugs before the old ones. Nope, not the case. I was just buying too much and it wasn't getting used. My kids prefer water however I have twins who have been diagnosed as "failure to thrive" so I push the higher calorie drinks on them whenever I can.
week I figured the best way to use up milk was with pudding. So I wrote
"pudding mix" on my grocery list. Then I stopped and realized that way
back when my grandmother or great grandmother wouldn't have run to the
store for a mix they would have just made it from scratch. So I hit up
my old favorite allrecipes.com and found this super easy chocolate pudding recipe.
I gathered all my ingredients and got down to business....
