Time to try something new. As you see, above is a picture of my messy, overly full fridge & freezer. For the next week, I’m gonna clean that sucker out, cooking my way through it (at least, I’m going to try).
I’ve got 3/4 lb of chicken livers, left over french onion soup, a celery root (set to become céleri rémoulade), a ton of goat cheese, a pork loin (I’ll have to roast that one off, I guess, and make sandwiches and quesadillas and things), fresh thyme, some apples (maybe a sauce with the pork one night? maybe some sort of salad?), a couple of pears, an orange, some baby spinach, 3 eggs, milk, goat’s milk kefir… the list goes on. There are also some prepared meals in the freezer, but I’m going to save those for the proverbial rainy day (there are a few kinds of soup, curried chickpeas, some braising liquid from a brisket I made that I think will go fantastically over some pasta, some pelmeni, and some booze). I’ve got some grains and pasta in the pantry and I’ll use those too, but the only thing I want to buy is supplemental salad veggies and things of that nature.
We’ll see how it goes. Hopefully next weekend, I’ll have a much cleaner fridge to show off (and a couple of recipes during the week, too!).
