Happy end of July!
There was no shopping for me this week, instead I cleaned out our extra freezer. That’s a lot like shopping if you are like me and forgot 3 seconds after you close the door what you just put in there! We had 2 hams, 1 turkey, tons of pork chops, chicken and a few bags of unknown meat (I threw those away)… We also have a crazy amount of frozen produce. All summer, our produce box was really too big for our family each week so we froze what we didn’t eat.
My goal for the next month is to eat just off these new found things. I am pretty confident that we can do it! A turkey or ham makes enough for 4-5 meals for my family, plus you can make soup from the bones and leftovers.
It might seem silly to use up all the meat in the freezer in one month, why not save it your thinking… well, here’s the thing… when the meat went into the freezer we forgot one vital piece of information – a date. So I have no clue how old any of it is, and really would rather eat it now while it still appears good than to wait even longer and waste it to freezer burn.
As for non-frozen items, we are still so stocked that there isn’t anything that we needed this week. I did hit the office supply stores for back to school deals, and will probably do that again next week too.
