Now apropo of nothing...
Our freezer is almost completely empty. I'm ridiculously happy about this, because my daily mission for January was to use up two items from the freezer or the pantry. We did really well and all that's left is a few bags of fruits, vegetables and french fries, 6 jars of honey (the honey is my husband's and I have no idea why he stores it in there), a pork roast and some soup bones for Fogo. That's it. Mind you we've had some strange meals (ie reheated curried turkey sausage soup with french fries, perogies and peas) and some brilliant ones (ie Bo Kho, a Vietnamese Beef Stew with Tomato, Star Anise and Lemongrass with rice). Our grocery bill was comfortingly small for January, though I suspect it will be a doozy for February.
But we've got a goal in mind to help keep us motivated to scrimp and save: Costa Rica.
Anyone else want to come with us?
