Eat it All in April

March 28th, 2019 at 08:43 pm

My husband will be traveling next week. So I have a plan, just as I did earlier this year to eat up what we have in the fridge, freezer and cupboard. I have yet to decide exactly what my meals will be as we have several days until he leaves.

To be honest we don't have a lot in fridge or pantry. We really don't stock up ever. But as you know, if you buy a bag of rice you often don't eat it in one meal. So then you have a partial bag of rice.

My first goal will be to focus on using any perishables from the refrigerator. My second goal will be to use some things from the freezer. I know there is a lentil soup in there. I also have the equivalent of a can of kidney beans and some peas. The final goal would be to incorporate any items from the pantry. I have two small boxes of raisins, so I'd really like to make broccoli salad, but that would definitely require buying broccoli.

I'll report in next week and let you know how it's going. I figure I'll save some money buy limiting my grocery purchases for a week. Do you have food you could use up and sustain you for a few days before you go to the store again?

    CCF, I was amused when I read this post, because I decided to do the same thing. I want to reduce my perishables. My region can be stormy from April - September and I don’t want to panic if there’s a power outage. I try to keep no more than 3-4 days of food in the fridge/freezer.

    I hope you will post what kind of meals you made with this and that in you pantry and freezer. I like reading creative ways to use up food.

    We usually have a decent stockpile as far as things like beans, rice, pasta, and canned vegetables.
