Using it up
We're preparing to go on a camping trip soon, which means that I'm attempting to get everything packed, the laundry done, the house clean, the trip scheduled, and the food in the fridge used up. All at the same time. Sigh.
I dislike packing, and the cleaning is a losing battle with my two little ones, but I do enjoy using up all the odds and ends in the fridge. It's fun to look at the five things that are left in the fridge and make a meal out of three of them. For me, it's creativity at its best.
And on an coincidental note, I saved lots at the grocery store this week because I planned my menu around what was in my freezer. I'll keep that in mind for future weeks when I want to keep costs down.
