Halloween is over and my 3-year old is sad. He doesn’t understand where the spooky door went and still wants to wear his orange spider socks. While orange spider socks can be year-round fun, it is time to turn the page. I’ve found the easiest way to do that is to get him excited about the next holiday, Thanksgiving.
With Thanksgiving, thoughts naturally turn to turkey. And those thoughts turn to leftovers. There’s going to be a lot food coming in at the end of the month. So this month, I’m going to focus on eating down all the food in my pantry. That is, as soon as I get back from vacation.
I probably have over $200 worth of food in a chest freezer. The food storage in my basement is probably worth the same.
With that in mind, I’m going turn this over to my wife who has the following advice:
Go to AllRecipes and do an ingredient search for all the random stuff that you have sitting around.
I didn’t realize how much random stuff we had until she mentioned some spices that I had never heard of before. (I already forgot what they are.)
Because I’m on vacation and this is mostly common sense, I’m not going to waste any more of your time today. Will you join me in making November “Eat Down Your Food” month?
