Our seedlings are sprouting in the garden and I just knew it was time to come to terms with last year’s produce in freezer that was still hanging around getting freezer burn!
Here is what I found: a bag of bread with two ends in it; a bag of green beans and a bag of brussels sprouts, both with freezer burn; a bag with last year’s jalapenos and one of pureed tomatoes; ziplock bag with 1/2 cup of marinara sauce with freezer burn, and a tray with a few eggrolls that had come unwrapped.
Coming soon to Meal Plan Monday: Chickpea Curry – because a number of the elements are waiting in the freezer.
I think putting things in little ziplock bags is a good way to forget to use them!

I have been thinking about the amount of food we are paying for that gets thrown out, so I am joining in Food Waste Friday. This week I need to toss: a bottle of Kefir (not the first time we have wasted this item); buttermilk (again, not the first time to throw this item out); some extra home-made cole slaw dressing; and a 20 oz soda that someone drank out of and didn’t finish.
That said, we ought to have a big salad tonight or that list will be longer!
How are things looking in your fridge this Friday?
