Here's a breakdown of how we've done so far in the February Food Foray...
1st: Kick-off February Food Foray! We probably had one last eating out hoorah this night...I don't remember.
2nd: Freezer: N/A. Pantry: 1 can of Hormel chili no beans - we ate it on hot dogs.
3rd: Freezer: N/A. Pantry: 1 can of corn, 1 can of refried beans - to eat with chicken fajitas made in my PC deep covered baker!
4th, 5th, 6th: out of town and ate very badly!
7th: I know I went to Whole Foods on the way home to get some milk and clementines, but can't remember what I ate for dinner.
8th: Dave had a happy hour after work so I cheated and had Taco Bell.
Not looking good, right? Keep reading, it gets better.
9th: Freezer: Chicken and vegetable steamer bag. The first thing we tried on this night was a shrimp fettuccine steamer bag that was just a little expired and it was TERRIBLE! It was supposed to be 2 servings but it was maybe 1 cup after it was cooked. BLECH. Even Dave wouldn't eat it, and he'll try most anything once. Pantry: fudge brownies with some leftover chopped walnuts on top. Yum.
10th: Freezer: Meatballs, spaghetti sauce, spaghetti noodles, 2 pieces of butter bread (why we left 2 pieces in the package - who knows?), ground beef. Pantry: N/A.
11th: Freezer: Lasagna, 2 pieces of garlic bread (why we left 2 pieces in the package - who knows?), triple berry smoothie mix - YUM! Pantry: N/A.
12th: Freezer: I made a Crockpot soup with chicken breasts and frozen vegetables. Pantry: 1 can of cream of mushroom soup, 1 can of cream of chicken soup.
13th: Girls' day at our house so I bought special food for the occasion.
14th: Happy Valentine's Day - I'm not cooking.
Doesn't look like much progress, but the freezer is only 1-2 levels deep on each shelf instead of 6 or 7! The bottom drawer is completely empty.
I feel like we've made good progress but still have a way to go :) Tonight's dinner is bacon-wrapped shrimp, crab legs, corn and wild rice - all from the freezer and pantry. That oughta make a dent!
