Fruit, eggs, milk, water
Not a ton of condiments which is good- there won't be too much to toss
Ice cream bars, waffles, frozen meat, veggies, sausage, english muffins
Funny story about that frozen turkey: Dan actually got that as part of his Christmas gift from work. He brought it home and I was like, "What year is it, 1950? Did they tell you to take it home to your little lady so she could fix you a nice warm meal?" I couldn't believe they would just hand out frozen poultry to a bunch of car guys in 2010. And as you can see it has been sitting in our freezer for the past six months.
It looks as if we will be having breakfast for dinner one of these nights since I have english muffins, breakfast sausage, and eggs to use up. This is no biggie though since I always love breakfast for dinner. Last night for dinner I used up the frozen ground turkey to make turkey meatballs and used all the fruit to make a nice big bowl of fruit salad that probably will only last a couple days (I love fruit).
And I got to use my cherry/olive pitter I got as a gift from my sister-in-law many years ago and just now used it for the first time (thanks Cindy!) and it worked perfectly.
And on a totally random note, I've been trying to clean up a lot as I go about things so that when we do actually move we can focus on just the packing and not scrambling to clean everything last minute. So as part of my clean-up recently I washed our olive oil dispenser in the dishwasher to get it nice and clean. Honestly I don't think I've even washed it once since we got married (five years ago...yikes). I just bought a new bottle of oil last week so I don't plan to use the dispenser 'til we move since it'd be hard to keep the oil from spilling out of the spout. Now when we unpack in the new kitchen it will be all ready to go.
So that's what I've been up to lately- trying to keep things clean while we eat our way out of this kitchen. It'll be very interesting to see how things will go without our stove and ovens. Looks like our microwave will be our new best friend for the next two weeks (Lord willing if we close on our house at the end of this month). Hopefully our human friends will help us out too.
Oh and I've also been trying to do laundry more frequently so we're not stuck with a mound of dirty clothes that take two or three loads to finish, leaving me up 'til all hours of the night watching Law & Order marathons. I'm trying to do one load at a time now. The fewer the loads the shorter the time it takes to wash, dry, and put everything away. Who knew? Anyone else moving in the near future and have any tips to offer?
