So, I just spent an hour or so doing an inventory of the kitchen (off-kitchen, actually) and basement freezers cause I’ve lost track of what’s in there.
There are several kinds of raw proteins available … chicken drumsticks, a box of pre-seasoned chicken wings, three boneless, skinless chicken breasts, a couple of packages of boneless pork loin, a big bag of large shrimp, and a single sirloin steak.
I’m going to see if I can avoid going grocery shopping until the next set of grocery store flyers come in, on Friday, and make do with what’s already on hand. I have no self control when it comes to picking up sale items, to store away in the FREEZER, for the future.
My flour canister is almost empty and I’m down to my last 5 lb bag of all-purpose flour in the freezer so I’m not going to do any bread baking until I’m totally out. I may even (shock and horror) BUY some from the bakery or grocery store.
I’ve thawed a strip of pork ribs and will be cooking it today tomorrow.
Stay tuned …

Sounds like a bunch of challenges in there 😃
Lots of possibilities.
I need to do an inventory of the freezer too, so much stuff in there. I buy a lot of fresh veggies on a weekly basis, I’m happiest when the fridge is full of veggies. I will need to work off the freezer for a while, it really needs a good defrosting!
I’ve been saying I need to defrost the upstairs freezer for a good year now. I even have the basement one to put everything into in the meantime so I have no excuse. 🙂
