I decided to declare this week clean out the fridge week because I hate having lots of food on hand. I rarely buy things I don't need, but when things are on sale and I have coupons, I can't help myself. I did a lot of baking at Christmas, and had leftover savory pie crust in the freezer. I also have eggs, some cheddar cheese, and ham and sausage left from last week's dinner challenge, so I decided to make quiche. I love making quiche because you literally can just clean out the fridge/freezer and put anything and everything in it. Peppers were not on sale this week, so all I bought was a bag of diced peppers and onions from the freezer section, and there's dinner for only $1.19!
I wasn't going to blog this week, but maybe my clean out the fridge will spark some ideas for you to have your own clean out the fridge/pantry week!
