I'm actually really enjoying this Challenge within a Challenge. Eating mainly from the freezer is having an immediate visual impact and I can see space appearing virtually each and every time I go in there.
Last nights tea turned out to be two of these sausage rolls for me and the lamb steaks for Alan. His served with some mixed veg, also from the freezer and mine served with a packet of noodles, simply because I was in a noodle-y mood :-)
I cooked all the sausage rolls as I did not want the pack to make it back into the freezer as it might once have done, but the other two rolls are in the fridge to be eaten ... one each ... along with a bowl of soup for lunch today.
There is no return for anything back into the freezer, once it's out it's out, and I think that's partly why the contents are going down so quickly.
It will be interesting to see what is left at the end of this month, which is on Thursday ... HOW did that happen!!
It's not just the freezer contents that are going down, with this not shopping and only eating what we have I am finding all sorts of things that I had forgotten about. This very large cookie for instance that came in one of my last Vegan Kind subscription boxes ... and I'm busy munching away on it while I'm typing out this post.
My other current obsession is shrink wrapping.
I bought a couple of boxes of 'vacuum storage bags' from Asda the other week for all the excess bedding we have around at the moment while the static caravan is closed down out of season, and I was sick of piles of bedding everywhere in the spare bedroom, of course with the risk that Ginger might find them and make new 'beds' for himself. So I set too and started packing them away. There is something very satisfying about seeing the contents shrink to almost nothing as all the air is sucked out of the sealed bags.
So at the moment it seems everything is shrinking here, the contents of the freezer and cupboards, the piles of bedding in the spare room ... well perhaps not everything come to think of it ... if I continue to sit at the computer eating giant cookies I will most definitely not be shrinking. Time to take two little pooches for a walk methinks and burn off some energy all round.
