Time to check in again. We have been doing SO WELL with this, for the most part.
Down to one box of salmon fillets in the freezer, and we've been managing to work at least one fillet into our weekly meal planning. Still need to dig out all of the freezer-burned ones and cook those for the dog.
Almost out of moose, except for some roasts. Those might end up moving with us, but if they do it's not a big deal.
Used a bunch of our frozen celery in the past few weeks.
Making some progress on the baking items, too, and the jars of preserved food. Also, the only noodles we have left are half a box of lasagna noodles.
Even with all the progress we've made, I still feel like our house is full of food, which it is. I just had to stock up on some things, like dog food and frozen peas (my daughter loves to have peas as a snack) and frozen fruit. But I also know that they'll get used up really fast, so I'm trying to focus on all the progress we've made on things which don't get used up as quickly.
It's very odd to think that we're in the home stretch (about 3 months to go). Doesn't really feel like it yet, with the winter blues (March sucks here--the fifth month of winter is tiring, especially knowing that spring is still about 2 months away) and mid-semester stress and whatnot. But, we're hanging in there and things will get much easier soon. At the very least, the return of the sun means that it's easier to get outside so we don't have cabin fever.
