Weird Food Week

“When they had all had enough to eat, he said to his disciples, ‘Gather the pieces that are left over. Let nothing be wasted.’” John 6:12

The weatherman says we’re fixing to get it!

Snow, snow and more snow! And our snowman from our last 4 inches hasn’t even completely melted just yet! Oh, the agony!

Anyway, I decided over the weekend that this was going to be weird food week because every week I spend $100 or more at the grocery store, and every week we still have those perpetual cans of beans and pasta sauce in the cabinet. And sometimes I even buy more beans and pasta sauce because they are my crutches at the grocery store. It is mental illness, I’m sure, but we’ll never starve to death!

Oh, and sour cream…

I bought another one today.

Since we’re gearing up for what may likely be the biggest snowfall of our winter, I ran to the store this morning like the rest of the winter-storm-warning-crazed people and purchased staple items like milk and bread just in case we never make it out of the house again!!! But for the most part, this week we will be using up food from our freezers and our pantry and other stashes around the house to see just what we keep, but never seem to eat. Wish us luck!

With that I leave you with: Freezer Find #1.

Plums from my grandma’s trees that she sent with my uncle several months ago. Plums that are so sour they can put any lemon to shame. Plums that will hopefully make nice jelly.

I’ll let you know later, as I forgot the pectin and have to go back to the grocery store again! Ha!

“[Jesus said] ‘Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you.’” John 6:27
