Finish off the bits... mode

I just went into the kitchen to find something for lunch and ended up with a cucumber sandwich. I used up the last of the cuke and the last of the bread and had a side of the rest of the cheeze crackers.

I've been doing that a lot lately. Making meals using the last bits of this and that. It's very satisfying.

I've been buying food and cooking for one since forever. It's not easy. I like leftovers but too much of a good thing...

For several years, I had a chef who would come in once a month or once every couple of weeks and make a lot of meals that I would freeze and eat until she (or he) came back to make more. This was mostly wonderful. I did not buy a lot of stuff I did not need. And I had good stuff to eat consistently. But, again, too much of a good thing...

I truly don't love grocery shopping so when I go, I tend to stock up on stuff so I don't have to go again soon. But I think I've gotten over that. There are groceries that are easily accessible from the gym so I can pop in every day if I want and get what I need. So a lot of the hoarding tendencies have calmed down.

My fridge, is looking very much more in control as is my freezer. I still have a couple of cupboard shelves that have really old stuff that needs a toss.

That might be an excellent project for this afternoon as a matter of fact.
