Day 25 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge
Another quick dinner before heading back to work. I’ve never been more excited for a lettuce wrap in my life. 😂 I had to start buying fresh produce again and I feel SO much better for it. The lettuce and celery were $1.20 and I only used about 1/3 of them. The rest was in my pantry and freezer. So, are ya’ll team Bleu Cheese or team Ranch Dressing?
