Oh my gosh...my freezers are out of control! I just did an inventory to see what all I have on hand, and I've decided I'm not allowed to buy anything (aside from frozen veggies when we run out and waffles for my kids) until they've been mostly emptied. It's ridiculous. It's beyond ridiculous actually. My cookbook project might have to get put on hold a bit so I can use up some stores of what I have. Or maybe I should extra challenge myself to stick with it and still use up what I have already. Don't believe me that it's out of control? Here's my list:
Guacamole - 2 packages
Organic ground beef - 1 lb.
Vegetable egg rolls
Chicken breasts - 11
Chicken carcass (note to self: buy celery to make stock)
Chicken tenders - 5 lbs.
Sweet potato fries
Pork roast - 2 (1.5 lb each)
King cake (that will be consumed this weekend)
Pork chops - 3 (packages with 3 chops each)
Shrimp - 2 lbs.
Ahi tuna steaks
Turkey (yes, a whole turkey)
Black bean soup
See? I'm not kidding. It's kind of nice putting this list here because I can always come back and cross things off it as I use them. My mind is swimming with ideas for what I can do to use up some of this stuff, but if you have any good ideas for any of it, please leave me a comment with your suggestion!
Boy #1's birthday is Sunday, and we ordered an ice cream cake for his party on Saturday. At this point, I have no idea where I'm going to store it between Friday night when I pick it up and his party on Saturday. Yikes!
