April Stockpile Challenge

So we are back to limited as shopping as part of our bi-monthly stockpile challenge.

Over the weekend I whipped up a couple of tasty little dishes.

The first one is something my Nan makes for lunch when the family descend on her for lunch and she needs to feed lots of people from a few pantry staples.  I used up a couple of burger buns that had been floating around the freezer for a few months.

Bacon and Corn Toast

1 Tin Creamed Corn
3 Eggs
1/2 Cup Grated Cheese
1 Onion Finely Diced
2 Rashers Bacon Diced
1/2 tsp each of Salt and Pepper 
End Crusts from bread/Burger Buns

Heat oven to 180 degrees.  Toast the side of the bread (inside) that will hold the filling under the griller.  Mix all ingredients together and spread on toasted side of the bread spreading all the way to the edge.  Bake until topping  is lightly browned and cooked through.  This mix can be stretched a long way or used over a couple of days.

 I also had some smoked salmon left over from making sushi.  So I teamed it up with some home made (more about that in another post) Bondon Cheese (a style of cream cheese) on some english muffins.
 We do not have a lot happening in the veggie garden but there is plenty of parsley, and beans and every second day there is a big handful of raspberries that make a great desert teamed up with some greek yoghurt.
So how are things with your stockpile?  Are you trying to reduce your spending this month?

If you are please leave a comment and a link below.


  1. Not reducing stockpile but swapping stuff at the veggie swap. Edibles for coffee grounds and scrap labels which were all free. WIN WIN. Im hoping i can track down the lady who made the zucchini pickle. - it was so yum.

  2. we need to build our stockpile up a bit

  3. PS. Im having cravings for the things my mum use to make on the farm. I keep calling her and saying, remember when you use to make....... My latest is an curried egg thingy in a sauce she used to put on toast. Well apparently its like a mornay sauce and if i google egg mornay even asparagus mornay and add eggs and curry i should get something like it. All these things were always made to use up gluts of a certain things but even then when you have 6 kids that work hard on the farm plus Dad, herself and misc dropins, every meal was a marathon. How did she do it.....


I'd love to hear your thoughts...
