I want to start the first couple of weeks of this year really using up what I have in my freezer.
When I sorted through it all the other day I found foods that I had forgotten I even had, including a nut roast from Christmas 2021!! Well now is the time to work my way through all this older stuff and try not to put anything into the freezer until I have cleared it.
I was aiming to have at least two things from the freezer every day and it was with this idea in mind that I put together this first weeks menu plan ... although in the end when I look at it now I have actually managed to incorporate three things each day. It will be interesting to see how this first week alone impacts on the state of the freezer drawers.
If things in life come up that mean a days meals don't get used, I will simply move that whole day forward to begin next weeks menu plan and fill in the rest of the week from that day forward.
And rather than working from my paper scribblings and eventually getting confused, I sat and typed all the contents of the drawers out so that I can see more clearly what have and be more easily able to tick off what I use.
Here's to week one of slow but steady freezer emptying.
