Good luck, DTaggart, let us know how it goes!
So, if I thought there was anyone else around here who got as much food as I do from work, I'd probably start my own gauntlet thread called "Eat All the Food You Bring Home from Work!"
This weekend, because of the leftover pancake mix and eggs from Shrove Tuesday's pancake supper (it was open to the community and we weren't sure how many would show up - bought extra just in case) the hospitality team decided to make eggs and pancakes for everyone after church. I had some after the early service, and was handed a take out container with another serving of 3 pancakes and more like 2 servings of eggs after the late service. So, for lunch today, I toasted a rosemary focaccia roll from the freezer, spread a little mayo, and half the eggs (warmed up). Served with the last of the crash hot potatoes I made the other night. Dinner was corn bread, tomato and cucumber, and an orange for dessert. Too healthy! So evening snack of pancakes with syrup. ;-)
Nothing from pantry or freezer today, plus I went grocery shopping, so I actually brought more food in. But I only spent $22, on produce, plus eggs, cream and pita bread. Price matched and got some really good prices on some of the produce. Got a bag of avocados again, at my "not great but ok to buy" price - has been a few weeks since I bought any, and I've been missing them. They won't be ripe for a few days though. 2 Bananas, 2 Apples, box of 10 kiwi (rock hard - will take weeks to ripen all of them, probably), 1 cucumber, 2 red peppers, 1 cabbage, 2 clamshells of tomatoes at 1 lb each, 1 bunch green onions.
Planning to take some food to the Toronto MMM meet-up tomorrow, so did a little cooking when I got home. Going to do some more cooking later this week, hoping to make quiche or muffin tin type egg patties with veg and cheese later this week (for the freezer) as well as getting started on chopping up and cooking the cabbage I bought tonight. Some for freezer just as plain cabbage to add to later recipes, but I'll also probably make a dish with cabbage in it, and some coleslaw. And just because I like cabbage, but find it hard to use a whole one by myself, will also feed some of that to the dog!
Tonight I fed the dog the last of the oatmeal that I cooked the other night - I think that means I'm down to 2.5 packages! Also gave her the off cut ends of the cucumber, and surprisingly, she also gobbled up the whitish ribs from inside the red pepper that I chopped up tonight (seeds removed).
