I had a wonderful rainy Sunday here. We are slowly but surely packing up the rest of our things for the long-awaited move. Along with packing up our things, our food supply is dwindling big-time. I’m trying to use up all the odds and ends in the fridge/pantry so we won’t have to waste any food. The result is often nutritionally unbalanced and/or relatively small meals. Today highlights that point perfectly.
Lunch was a can of Amy’s split pea soup that I found in the back of the cupboard. We didn’t have any bread/crackers to go with it… no fruit left either (sad face). AND I even split the can with husbo. Yes, I know.
Even with the brunch of champions today, we were both still really hungry after our measly bowls of soup. I still had a little homemade granola mixed with peanut butter left, so we each had a little bowl of that too.
Our dinner was also a mix of ‘found’ items around the kitchen that turned out to be very tasty. The fridge contributed some ground turkey breast, half a brick of cheddar cheese, and salsa. In the cupboard I had half a box of penne. I browned the turkey while the water boiled, and grated the cheddar while the pasta cooked. I mixed everything together, then added some breadcrumbs on top as a finishing top. For a fifteen minute meal that was pretty much thrown together with kitchen scraps, it was pretty darn tasty.
The rest of my evening is pretty much a countdown until Mad Men comes on at 10, haha. In the meantime, I’ll probably pack more clothes, do some school work, and schedule my week. Luckily I have tomorrow off so I will probably be able to finish all the packing (finally!).
