OK - so this week was NEVER going to be an empty fridge but none of it is waste (I just hope I can say the same thing next week). Had I left the shopping 'til tomorrow then it would have been empty but the thought of going to Sainsbury's on Christmas eve filled me with dread (it was bad enough going this afternoon!!)
Top shelf - spread, cream, milk, soya cream, 3 x different cartons of juice
Middle shelf - 2 x bacon, 2 x ham, cheese, fruit salad, ready made roll pastry
Bottom shelf - beetroot, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, tomatoes, red pepper
Left drawer (as you look at it!) - condiments
Right drawer (middle picture) - courgettes, sprouts, carrots, parsnips, sweet potato
Door - butter, crumble mix, mini baileys, mini strawberry liqueur thing, eggs, piece of praline, soya milk, soya vanilla milk, ginger beer, 3 x fruit cider
Yes there is a lot of stuff in there but there is also a plan for just about all of it!!
Xmas day / Boxing day breakfast will take care of some of the bacon, eggs, pepper, pastry, some of the cheese and some of the milk (not all in one brekkie I have two planned but not sure which way round yet!!)
Xmas dinner will probably involve most of the veggies being cooked as we have to make sure there is enough for bubble and squeak on Boxing day. More milk will go in the Yorkshire pudding mix and there will be some for cups of tea and coffee!
The cream/soya cream is for the Xmas pud (obviously!) The fruit salad that is there will get eaten this evening but M is making another one for Xmas day and Boxing day for when the over indulgence gets too much!!
The ham, some more cheese and tomatoes will be an Xmas / Boxing day tea choice - toasted sarnies or filling for fresh baked baguettes. It will also go towards lunches for next week, as will leftover bacon (or that will go in the freezer)
Lets wait and see how well it goes and how empty it is come next weeks post.
