Leftovers! or C.O.R.N. theme for the day!
Living with only one fridge, and a much smaller one at that means that space within the fridge quickly becomes filled, if one doesn't keep a keen eye on things, especially leftovers. I have made a concerted effort to reduce my cooking amounts, depending upon who checks in as coming to dinner (or not). While I have the "let me know by 3 p.m." rule, I have had last minute cancellations which translate into leftovers, usually. While I had planned a veggie drawer clean out meal: veggie stir fry over rice, the bits of this n that are building up quickly in the fridge so it's a make yourself a plate type of a day. If we make good progress with lunch, I'll certainly revert back to the original plan, but I need to see just what remains after lunch. Toss in that my freezer compartment has also filled with planned over meals, which I will use once I return to work in a week. I just want to eat stuff down, free up space, avoid wasting what we have in there.
