Pantry Challenge Challenge - No Salad Dressing

DH eats anything I make.  He isn't picky and asks very little from me as far as food goes.  So when he expressed concern over our limited selection of salad dressing I realized just how low we had become! 

Due to Pantry Challenge 2014! I don't want to buy anymore dressing.  I am pleased that some of the rarely used dressings are disappearing from the fridge door shelf.  Here's what's left in the door.  Note to self:  Don't buy fruity, berry dressings.

We've also been using samples that were hiding in the fridge.  Thousand Island from a box lunch, Honey Mustard intended for chicken nuggets, and this packet of Caesar.

When the ranch was almost gone I poured about 1/3 cup of milk into the bottle, shook it really well, and got another dinner use out of it.

I also brought home a small baggie of freshly made dressing from church one Wednesday to give DH something different.

I even looked up recipes for making my own dressing.  DH likes creamy best, but many of those recipes called for mayonnaise which I also don't have in my pantry.  I found a no-mayo ranch recipe but it calls for 1 cup of sour cream which costs about $0.62 on a good sale and a whole bottle of ranch only costs $1.00 at Dollar Tree or on a good sale. 

Long story short, I'm buying a bottle of salad dressing this week as I've exhausted my pantry stores.
