The Great Cupboard Cleanout
I’ve been really lazy about cooking this summer, but it just occurred to me that I am moving in about three weeks, and if I don’t eat all the food I already have – I am either going to waste/forfeit it, or have to pack it up and move it. This does not appeal to me. So, aside from the fact that I do not want to pack food, I could use the extra money that comes from not ordering sushi every time I get hungry.
So – I give to you: My Cupboards
This isn’t a perfect plan, since you can’t see everything that’s in there – but figure that I have most of the staples. Not shown is “whatever is behind the other cans” and a few thing of pasta. In the fridge is a bunch of waffles, lots of frozen fruit, a bag of frozen squash, a package of chicken breast, and a package of frozen red snapper. That’s it for meats, so think vegetarian. I am of course willing to buy stuff (fresh veggies, etc.) but the goal is to eat what I have. Suggestions for easy-to-moderate recipes that will use up some of my “stuff” and are somewhat summer appropriate? I feel like a lot of what I have is really heavy and good for chilis, but … it’s summer – not really feeling very chili.
So – whatcha got? I don’t need specific recipes – just some ideas. Ask questions, inspire me! I haven’t packed any cookware yet, so I have pots, pans, etc. I have a crockpot I have never used yet. Oh, also – I have been trying to eat somewhat healthfully lately.
Help me, internet!
