I've signed on to take part in the True/Slant Eating Down the Fridge (EDF) challenge next week. The idea is to skip grocery shopping for a week, and use up what's hiding in the fridge/pantry/freezer/garden. There's been a few EDF weeks already, but each time I've been away. Somehow it didn't seem cricket to take part when I was eating out in Vancouver restaurants!
I'm afraid it's not that much of a challenge. My pantry is well-stocked with beans, pasta, and rice; my freezer has butter, stock and all sorts of frozen fruit. As you can see. The challenge might be to identify what all that stuff is.
And then there's the fact that my CSA delivery arrives on Monday, and the milkman comes on Thursday. I will do a little grocery shopping tomorrow, just to grab a few staples. Things like toilet paper.
So it might not be much of a challenge, but it certainly will be a good idea! Perhaps I should start with practicing my spreadsheet skills and inventory what all lives in all those places...
Or maybe not.
Anyway--I'll be let you know next week how it's going.
