It's been almost a year since I've done a shop-from-my-pantry week so you get the privilege of seeing my disorganized cupboards and fridge again. It's truly wonderful to know that even on such a tight budget, it's still possible to accumulate enough to take a week off of shopping. By the end of the week we're being pretty creative but I can honestly say that some of my best meals have come from weeks just like this.
I cooked up one of my bargain turkeys from the freezer today and we had a wonderful meal to kick off the week. Here's what's left to get us to next week.
My inside freezer has some pumpkin puree, frozen veggies, frozen soup, bread, a little Christmas ham, hamburger...
My fridge has veggies and fruit, tea and lemonade, condiments, turkey, eggs, pickles, and leftovers.
My outside freezer has some garden rhubarb, bread, chicken, beef and turkey, lots of broth, and a casserole.
My pantry has plenty of baking supplies, oatmeal, dried fruit, jars of applesauce and jam, a bit of top ramen, pasta, beans and some canned goods.
I also have a drawer full of rice, lentils potatoes, and garlic.
Not too shabby. I really have a lot to work with.
