It’s “Clean out the Fridge & Pantry Week” at our house.
Next week we’re going on a long-awaited vacation and I want to make sure we don’t leave a fridge full of food to spoil. I also need to rely on what’s already in my pantry and freezer so I can keep our expense super- low this week and put some of that budget toward the food we’ll need on vacation.
I Just noticed we’re having chicken almost ever night, and when we don’t it’s because we’re having pizza or salad! Oh well. Clean Out The Fridge Week can be like that sometimes!
So, here’s what we’re having, keeping these points in mind;
- My plans are flexible, things usually change as we go along. No worries; just rearrange as needed.
- Remember to consider your schedule when deciding which meals to serve on which nights. Assign quick or crockpot meals on those busy days, fun meals on Friday, etc.
- Come back often because I’ll try to add a post for anything I don’t currently have linked.

Breakfast this week is pretty much grab what you can find; smoothies, eggs, peanut butter toast, oatmeal…
I’ll be doing some cooking ahead this week for meals to take on our vacation. We’re staying in a cabin and don’t want to eat out all the time but who wants to cook on vacation! It’ll be extra work this week but well worth it next week when I don’t have to cook. I’ll include all of those yummy details next week.
Enjoy your week, and eat well!
