It’s the 3rd day since I announced my challenge, but day 2 of raiding my fridge and pantry. I got up this morning and hit those shelves hard so I could mentally calculate and get an inventory of what I have. After taking much of the snacks away to put them in the “kid snacks cabinet” in another room, I feel much better. And it looks better too.
So now I can really shop from my shelves and breathe to tell you the truth. And after looking at this, it’s not so terrible actually. Except all the mustard and sauces. And baking mixes. Other than that, it’s staples, lol.
This morning, my little girl wanted eggs in a basket so I used up the heels of a loaf of bread and cooked her 2 eggs in 2 baskets, fried up some bacon and then I quickly took another egg and threw it into the skillet and got it good and dippy and tossed that into some pasta along with the bacon for an on-the-fly carbonara. Really tasty! No photo though.
Day 2 Dinner:
The remainder of some thawing ground beef, some leftover chili, the last 4 Miss Jenny’s Salt & Pepper Pickle slices and the last of some provolone for a delicious burger. And we polished off a salad and added the last 1/8 of a bag of rosemary fries. I still have a lot of mustard.
I may not be getting skinnier. But I feel lighter in the shelves anyway. I really want to do this as healthfully as possible. Which is why you see 12 fries above However doing this paleo or low carb is going to be a challenge.
We went out to eat Saturday night so in the queue is my husbands lamb tacos and some refried beans. And I have 3 BBQ chicken wings that I’m going to have tomorrow with some quinoa and I’m going to add it to some Nopalitos dip (cactus, avocado and some spicy stuff) and add some toasted chickpeas for a side salad. I sat that right in front in my fridge so I won’t forget. That before we get busy for a couple of days then we’ll be shopping from our shelves again on Wednesday.
