Pantry clean out time

Full disclosure time:  I sometimes buy groceries that I really haven't made a plan for using.  Sometimes these groceries remain untouched in the freezer or cupboard for MONTHS before I get around to figuring out what to do with them. 

This week my plan (if you could call it that) is to NOT BUY GROCERIES*.  That's right - I'm going to clean out that pantry of the "ingredients" and make room for "food."

That means the pork roast that I plonked into the freezer but then never used because it was so large that it takes so much time to defrost that I just shift it aside for the popcicles will get used (finally.)  Probably a whole bunch of rice too.  I have LOTS of rice. 

*Milk and eggs are exceptions.  We cannot live without milk and eggs in the house.

I do that, too. But semi-annual clean out week isn't' until the end of August, beginning of September. I have a ham, a very large ham...
