Eat It All

January 7th, 2017 at 04:26 pm

Checking in this evening to give an update on my progress of eating it all, the food stores we have in our home. I've crossed off what I ate so far. And I actually ate a piece of leftover homemade pizza from last nights dinner, as well as some salad my husband didn't eat earlier in the week. I made fresh soup tonight for dinner. I'm going to freeze the leftovers for later in the month.

Freezer Finds
1 frozen banana
3 2/3 cup frozen strawberry servings
2 1 cup frozen blueberries
frozen tomato soup
1 boca burger
1 microwavable meal
1.5 pounds chicken breast
1 whole chicken

Refrigerator Finds
2 opened jars of salsa
8oz sour cream
balsamic dressing (used half of remaining amount)
celery
romaine
kale
1 c. refried beans (ate this in full)
feta cheese (whole package)
3 clementines (ate 2)
1.25 packages turkey bacon (husband ate the 1/4 package)

Pantry Finds
3 English muffins (ate one)
chia seeds
barley (2 servings)
2 c brown rice
2 c white rice
1 c. lentils
1 can black beans
1 can white kidney beans
1 can chunky soup
1 can tomato soup
1 pkg couscous
taco seasoning
1 c arborio rice
12 Wasa crackers (ate 2)
2 cans tuna
spaghetti 1 serving
fettuccini 2 servings

I plan to eat the english muffins or fruit for breakfast. I may also make some green smoothies with the extra romaine lettuce and chia seeds. I can eat the boca burger, tomato soup, and tuna for lunches along with some fresh salad to use up that dressing. My grocery list is much smaller for this upcoming week as I plan to incorporate the chicken, rice, beans, couscous, and the pasta into many meals for the upcoming week.

Do you have anything in your refrigerator that you need to eat up before the food goes to waste?

    I have a part of an onion that has been in the fridge for a day or so, so I need to use it up. For today's breakfast and today's lunch, I ate the rest of some leftover meatloaf before it went bad. I have not had meatloaf for breakfast before, but hey, it's food, right? I also need to use up the carrots and celery in the fridge. That will happen tomorrow, as I am baking a whole chicken with some veggies.

    Do you have a plan for the money you would have spent on groceries?

    Yes, I plan to put that cash saved towards February tuition for my daughter. Smile I need to thaw my whole chicken before I can get it baked, I should get that started.

    Our rice eating continues! My daughter loves rice, and she asked for some of the wild rice for breakfast. Whenever we get takeaway Chinese, she eats fried rice for breakfast so it's not that unusual for her. Six weeks after our last veggie delivery, we're still eating those.

    We went away camping last week and have only just finished eating the food that we brought back with us! I don't usually like buying heaps and heaps of groceries so there isn't normally much to use up.
