Food Challenge

My challenge for this year is to only eat foods:

1.      Grown by me (seeds or immature plants)
2.       Foraged wild plants  
3.       Killed or watched killed (probably only trout)
4.       Know the people who grow my food and harvest it myself
5.       Only 10 items will be from a store

The stipulations for those 10 items:

1.       A shelf life of at least 6 months
2.       Cooking versatility
3.       Max of three ingredients
4.       Cannot be grown by me because of limitations in space or climate
5.       Inexpensive (I know the organic, vitamin-rich, non-hybrid, blah-blah-blah is healthier, but if it costs too much, then I will not buy it.)

Incomplete list of items:

1.       Unbleached Wheat Flour (King Arthur’s)
2.       Sugar
3.       Salt
4.       Yeast
5.       Butter (salted)
6.       White Rice
7.       Cooking Oil
8.       Vinegar
