I have talked about stocking up and it is a great thing to do, but my stockpile is starting to take over! 🙂 It’s a good problem to have though, I must admit!! So in order to keep stockpiling, I need to use up some of what I have. My goal for this week is to make meals using what I have on hand. Tonight, I was able to make my tortilla soup (recipe in an earlier post) – I had everything on hand thanks to coupons and sales. I even had the chips and shredded cheese to serve in it. Yesterday we had leftover smoked turkey from Christmas – I had it out in the deep freezer. With a little barbeque sauce added to it, it was yummy stuff! Served it with broiled red potatoes and asparagus (it was on sale this week and I have been craving it!). Saturday night we had T-bone steaks (from the deep freezer – we went in on having a cow processed last year), mashed potatoes, and steamed broccoli. I am curious to see how long I can keep this up!
Check your cupboards, your freezer, and your fridge and see what you can make without making a trip to the store. I would love to hear what you were able to make.
