It’s January and my freezer is full of meat. It’s time to stop buying and start using up last year’s shopping. This needs a bit of organising and planning but that’s what I love to do. I am not really a fan of meal prep, the idea of eating the same thing everyday makes my stomach hurt. I like variety and different foods every day.
We only have 3 drawers and one is filled with gyoza and frozen fruit but we have two drawers that we need to go through.
I don’t want to buy any meat if we already have it. It means a bit of planning and lot of cooking but I have the time, and every year I want to reduce waste especially in my kitchen.
It actually helping me with meal planning, although yesterdays frozen ready meal was gross and we won’t be buying them again. I took out sausages at the same time so tonight I am doing a sausage orzo /rice bake, not sure what it’s called I just roast some veggies, add hearts and garlic, throw in the sausages, add orzo ( or rice) , beans, and a can of tomatoes and it and it healthy and tastes good. It’s one of my favourite meals.
It means less take outs and more knowledge of what we are eating.
