budgeting food

Cooking from my freezer

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’s not pretty but it’s one of my faves

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.

About DP

Hi, I am Dana. I am dyspraxic trying to function and get organised in my dysfunctional world. I don’t shy away from technology but I do have a preference for all things paper and analog. I am trying to organise our lives through my bullet journal, travel around the globe and save money!!! Impossible I know. I have a hard time believing that you should spend a fortune on one day. So, with my creative skills and frugality I will hopefully create my dream wedding without getting into debt. My bullet journal has been a life saver, so much that I now have 3. One for life, one for wedding planning and my last for this blog. I am lost without them. I have a wonderful partner, two fur babies ( Manhattan and Frank) a full time job that I love and my love of blogging. Please bear with me with my spelling and grammar I do proof read about 4 times but I still miss things. I won’t be offended if you correct me. So that’s me, I draw and teach art to both kids and adults and I believe anyone can create anything you just have to practice. I have had to try and try at organising, that is why I am the Dysfunctional Planner.
