By eating PB&J sandwiches and flavoring my home made yogurt with blackberry jam I am down to the last jar.
I gave some canned goods and 10 packages of Ramen to Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission. There are still a few packages of the soup mix in my stash but Ramen is a great way to use up a scrap or two of meat and any leftover vegetables so I didn’t give them all away.
I used the canned salmon to make salmon patties. The patties are now stored in my freezer with a lot of other meal sized portions of the other foods you’ve seen on these “eat myself out of ouse & home” posts. Every few days I move a few leftovers from the freezer to the fridge to thaw and slowly but surely I’m finishing it all off and not have to eat the same food several days in a row.
I still have a full box of saltines but I eat soup a lot especially in winter months so I know it will get used up.
My pledge to myself for the future is to keep good records of what I have and what I need and not purchase things just because its a good price.
