So just to clarify before starting this challenge I did not stock up on anything. The last time I shopped was the 22nd of January. This challenge formed in my mind over the Australia day long weekend when we were flooded in. And what I really wanted to know was, if without warning, we could not get to the shops how long could we last.
Linda also mentioned flour, and yep I have loads. At a guess there is 2 kg Plain Flour, 2 kg Self Raising Flour, 500gm Wholemeal flour, 1 kg of 000 Flour, 4 kg Spelt Bread Flour, 4 kg Rye Bread Flour, 3 kg Wholemeal Bread Flour and 2 kg White Bread Flour. Heavens that is a lot of flour for 2 people who would be lucky to get through a loaf of bread a week.
So in the spirit of transparency here are our stockpiles... prepare your self...
|324 Lt Chest Freezer - Filled with meat from the cow we had killed.|
There are also blocks of chicken stock (the blocks on top and in the ice cream container)
There are also lots of frozen diced tomatoes.
|This our second 225lt chest freezer. This one has the last of the meat chickens |
we killed last year, frozen fruit and veggies, a spare loaf of supermarket bread and
general odds and ends.
|The freezer above the fridge - More chicken stock, frozen leftovers,|
ice, butter, crusts to make into bread crumbs, pastry
and a bag of frozen bananas
|The freezer door - More frozen bananas, tomato paste, yeast|
and cheese cultures
I don't actually like bananas but I hate waste so when they get soft and hubby won't eat them a freeze them. I will have to use some to make a banana cake or banana bread.
|Inside the fridge|
|The pantry - sauce and spice city|
|The pantry - Flour, legumes, carbohydrates, baking goods, crackers|
seeds and nuts
|Preserves, cereals and tinned foods|
