Food Overload

Our fridge is crying out for help.
We have a had different groups of friends visiting recently for meals and they all wanted to leave bits and pieces behind.  So on top of everything else that we already had our fridge is overflowing.
There is only the two of us, so for this week (and perhaps next week too) there will be no grocery shopping at all.
This will certainly help me with my Plastic Free July and with the bank balance, not that we spend that much on food.
So what's on the menu this week:
Beef Spare Ribs, Cauliflower Bake, Baked Potato's and Coleslaw (all leftovers)
Beef Spare Ribs, Baked Potato's with Sour Cream, Spring Onions and Tomato Salsa (all leftovers)
Fritata to use up the last of the Baked Potato's and Spring Onions with Silverbeet from the Garden
Baked Chicken with Cherry Tomato's (leftovers) and Couscous Salad
Roast Beetroot and Feta Salad
Chicken Stirfry with Veg from fridge and garden
Lamb Korma, Naan, Rice, Raita, Tomato and Spinach Stew and Aloo Mattar (we will have this for a few nights this week in different combinations)
I am sure there will be a few other meals that get thrown together from other bits and pieces and I hope to have a lot less in the fridge this time next week.


  1. Well yes you do appear to be well stocked! Great sounding food plan ahead though - enjoy. It's fun to work with leftovers too I think. cheers Wendy

  2. Do you deliver? lol, sounds like a yummy, well planned week ahead.

  3. Snap! We're having a *No Buy Food* month as we have so much.
    And I put a photo of our fridge up a couple of days ago. How strange to come here and see the same being said. Too cool.



I'd love to hear your thoughts...
