Use It Up

Well, my family and I are soon heading on a little vacation. My challenge has thus been using up all of the fresh food in the fridge and some pantry items.

I've used up the eggs. Last night I finished up two half-bags of pasta (whole wheat rotini and plain macaroni) and the broccoli. Tonight most of the remaining vegetables from the CSA are going into a stir-fry with ramen (the answer to "what's for dinner"). This will include onion, yukina savoy, and carrots. At some point, I'm going to toss the last couple of tablespoons of parmesan, goat cheese, and feta on something.

Luckily there is red lentil soup in the freezer for when we return to an empty fridge.

Lentil soup does the trick every time.

Enjoy that vacation!
