I followed Miss Merry's advice. She left me a very helpful comment yesterday about me having and buying way too much food.
I went through all my canned and dry goods and collected everything that had an expired date.
I can't believe how much there was!
I'm sure I got all this at good prices but what good is that when it's all going in the rubbish!!
What a waste of money.
Well, I did quite a bit of reading about expiration dates and "best by" dates and they don't always mean very much so I am making some calls to the food pantries like the Salvation Army and see if they could use some of these things.
If they can, that would make me feel so much better!!
I am not going to restock any of these things, except the baking powder, until I need it, then I'll just buy what I need.
No more filling up the pantry shelves with good bargains as I see that doesn't work.
I am no longer cooking for four!
And I no longer really eat that much!
I feel better when I eat small meals.
I also found some sites that give some good recipes for one.
Just Google them.
Well, I plan on just cooking from what I have until it is used.
I may come up with some very interesting meals!!
