Fridge shopping

30 Sep

We didn’t end up cooking much this week for various reasons, so today I decided to meal plan based on what we have in the kitchen. I don’t know it’ll last the whole week, but I’m interested to find out. Here’s what we have:

-Three Armenian cucumbers
-A ton of regular cucumbers that need to be turned into pickles

-Half a honeydew
-Half an avocado

-One can of tomatoes
-Chipotle peppers
-Uncooked barley and black rice
-Oils (olive, coconut, toasted sesame)
-Vinegars (balsamic and white)

I am thinking a Mexican-style scramble with home fries for brunch and a Veganomicon butternut/white bean dish for dinner. Tomorrow’s lunch will probably be black bean soup, and I’m thinking a barley/mushroom main for dinner. And maybe pizza later in the week? I’m not sure, but I’m excited to have the challenge!

And now back to the Jets/Niners game.

    I love doing this. Some of my favorite meals have come out of “fridge” shopping. I’ve been trying to really do this more since my family and I have been trying to save money while I’m on unpaid maternity leave. Keep up the fun blogging!
