It’s week two of eating through the freezer and pantry! Yaaayyy! Or Boooo! Why does the freezer still look as full as last week? Oh well we still have 3 to 5 weeks to go.
We started eating through our freezer last week in preparation for our coming move.
Our refrigerator/freezer and our chest freezer were stuffed with food and in the interest of being frugal and avoiding moving a chest freezer full of food we’re limiting our grocery shopping to milk, eggs, and fruit/veggies and coming up with meals from what we already have on hand. No more buying bread.
Sounds great huh?
I never thought this would be hard for me but I already caved last week and purchased some salsa for our weekly quesadillas.
The meals are easy to come up with but we had a habit of stocking up on big meat. So I’ve been having to thaw huge hunks of meat. I’ve got 20 lbs of chicken to work through but it’s all in a solid frozen block. That’s on the schedule for this coming Sunday.
In the mean time I have to come up with this week’s menu from what I have on hand. Forgive me because it’s going to be sparse and the veggies are whatever I seem to have on hand.
Monday: Chicken Stir Fry
Tuesday: Baked Sole
Thursday: salmon chowder
