We are on a mission to eat our pantry, fridge and freezer down before we leave on vacation. We haven't done a major grocery shop since before Christmas. I've only purchased milk, produce and bread. Our fridge is getting pretty bare but we still have miscellaneous sauces and dressings that need to be used. This past week, we've had some interesting meals like gumbo over pasta, sesame chicken (which was delicious but I've had that sauce for awhile), and hamburger potpie. These are all meals that we eat but many times we opt for easier meals during the week when we're rushed. This coming week I have the following planned:
Spaghetti with meat sauce
Ham and bean soup
Chicken in the crock pot
Salmon sandwiches--never made these before but I have a can of salmon to be used.
This has made for some interesting meals but I am not doing a full grocery shop before leaving. Thankfully my family will pretty much eat anything.
Anybody else focusing on using up everything for this January?
