Mary: You must have been hungry!
Good that you have an alternate plan for tonight's dinner!
Tina: When you are planning your menus, keep in mind that certain veggies, like broccoli and carrots, and fruits like apples and oranges, keep fresh longer than the rest.
Cyd: So sorry to hear that you have been so ill with your cough. I'm still getting over my cough, too; it's been about 10 days now. I think it is easier for me to stick to the lower priced fresh produce because I have so much from which to choose.
Did a quick freezer inventory, this morning. I have:
1 whole chicken
1 portion roast chicken
1 bag of giblets, etc. for soup
3 packets beef curry (took out one to thaw, for tonight's dinner)
4 1/2 packets (approx. 1 lb./packet) cooked ground beef
2 lbs. Polish sausage
1 packet breakfast sausages
Bacon - 4 lbs.! Bought when they went on sale for $3/lb (reg. price is $6+ for bacon, these days; I refuse to pay that much)
2 packets of cooked lentils
several bags of frozen vegetables (black eyed peas, corn, green peas, etc.) plus small amounts of onions & celery
4 packets of sliced peaches
1 packet grated coconut
4 3/4 lb. butter
2 lb. walnut halves
10 lb. flour (part of my emergency supplies)
In the main pantry cabinet, I have several cans of tuna & sardines, fruits (peaches, apricots, pears, pineapple, mixed fruit) & vegetables (corn, green peas, green beans, baby corn, garbanzo, breadfruit, 1 tomato sauce), 3 cans of coconut milk, 3 cans condensed milk, 2 jars peanut butter, and a few other items. Much of the canned items are part of my emergency supplies, but, I do incorporate them into my meal plans, on occasion. Another cabinet holds a supply of sugar, also part of my emergency supplies. A 3rd cabinet holds the cereals, crackers, pasta, etc.
