Using what you have
Mrs Green's Zero waste blog. Mrs Green is hosting a little freezer challenge which I am going to join in with. Basically the challenge is to use up items you may have lurking in your freezer/store cupboard and not going out to buy any more food until it is used. After spending a large chunk of this months food budget on yesterday's barbecue I think this is the perfect challenge for me right now. Before I start going through the freezer I need to use up what is left over from yesterday, as you can see from the pictures above there is plenty left over to begin this challenge well. All I am planning on buying this month is the fresh fruit/vegetables and milk that we need. Once the barbecue food has gone I will make an inventory of what is lurking in the kitchen and menu plan with that, I'm curious to see how close to my next payday I can get with it.
I'm feeling a little smug this morning as I made some of my homemade bread for the barbecue and everyone ate it, even the children's fussy auntie who couldn't believe it was home made :-)
