I love when my cupboards are almost empty the day or two before grocery shop day. (Of course I am asked by several children, "WHEN are you going to the grocery store? We have NOTHING to eat!") But I always take this chance to clean my fridge and freezer and cabinets and get creative with the odds and ends.
This morning I found going-stale pita bread and made a big batch of pita chips.
Salami and pepperoni and ham and cheese that wasn't used since the last grocery shop will be made into calzones for dinner tonight with the two frozen bread loaves I found in the freezer.
The canister of oatmeal and some almonds and coconut flakes were baked into granola.
The extra frosting I made for cookies last week will frost a cake (from a box of course) I found in the cabinet.
I cut up all the fruit into a big fruit salad.
And the Romaine lettuce and tomatoes with the 1/2 container of feta will be accompany the calzones perfectly.
I think we will have english muffin pizzas for lunch.
And then tomorrow we'll be officially ready to fill 'er all up once again.
