Instead, I am posing myself a challenge: Eat only what is in the fridge, freezer or cupboard until my fridge gets cleared out.
I am not including fruits and veggies in this endeavor because I don't know how long it will take - and eating month old lettuce does not appeal to me.
For lunch I had the following ingredients to work with:
This is what I came up with:
|Turkey and veggie stuffed shells.|
I browned some ground turkey with some minced garlic and then I threw in some chopped up broccoli florets and one shredded carrot.
I ended up adding in some shredded Gruyere cheese.
I threw the pasta shells into boiling, salted water for six minutes.
|The shells stuffed to the brim!|
|Sauced and ready to go into the oven.|
I think it turned out really well.
The dogs thought so too because they got to split one of the shells :-)
So brace yourself for odd meals ahead as I eat down my pantry and fridge.
