Operation Defrost Freezer
Mission: Defrost the freezer without wasting lots and lots of food.
Deadline: 7/23/10 before our vacation to my parents. This might seem like a very generous deadline, but I am not talking about a small freezer. In addition to the freezer above we have a large cheast freezer in the basement completely packed with food.
This freezer is so packed it is really hard to find what we are looking for, or to even know what we have. In addition to this allowing us to defrost the freezer, I am hoping we can save a little money on groceries by eating down what we already have.
Plan of attack:
1) Take inventory
2) Plan meals
3) Fix & Eat meals
I will keep you posted on how this goes. The real hard part will be not refilling the empty space once we clean it out.
I am a 28 year old wife and mother on the path to a healthier lifestyle. I like to cook, garden, run, read and talk about nutrition and play with my rambunctious 2 year old boy TJ. I love tasty (read as greasy) food, so I am pretty constantly trying to find a good balance.
