Planning from the pantry
We've still got some garden food from the summer in our freezer, and I've decided it's time to clean it out. I planned a menu from the freezer and pantry this week. We'll need to pick up a few things, but starting with what we have will save us a lot!
Also, a more long-term goal is to eat down some of our black beans. Eight years ago I bought five (!) five-gallon buckets of them, and it was too much. We're down to two, but I want to be down to one. Think we can eat a whole bucket of dry black beans this year? I think we'll take care of it if we eat the equivalent of two cans per week. But I'm getting to a good start this week with four cans on the menu.
