    Default Use It Up/Waste Not Challenge for March 2010!!

    Wanted to start a fresh one for March - for me it recharges my engines and gets me more motivated.

    What did you use up in March?

    I'm ready..I'm especially going to concentrate on the half used in the fridge and on one freezer. Not pantry so much as this. If I don't get some of the freezer used/cooked I'm going to lose the stuff. So I'm going to try extra hard this month

    One thing that I have started doing at school when making coffee in our small coffeemaker is for the second batch I just had one new scoop of coffee instead of dumping the old - someone here mentioned it and it does work just fine.

    I'll try this! I'm going to do the coffee thing too, since I run my coffee pot to make just one cup every morning, might as reuse the grounds. Also the bottles of lotion, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, that all have just a little in them...they are going to be worked on as well. Along with my cosmetics that I have a little bit of this and that. Also the fridge and freezer. Use up the old before buying new. That's all I'm going to commit myself to for now!

    Today I;

    *made chicken corn noodle soup with a chicken carcass I cooked earlier in the week.

    *made turkey and brown rice & rice noodle soup with a turkey carcass I had.

    *made sloppy joes with a pepper that was on it's way out and an onion that was starting to sprout.

    *on my agenda-going to make burritos to put away in the freezer with leftover burrito filling. Quick meal or snack for the guys.

    I guess we're starting a day early so I will post todays here. Did make the chili so used up
    1 lg chili beans
    1 lg tomato sauce
    1 sm tomato paste
    2 cans tomatoes
    2 onions
    1 ziplock hamburger

    Took a pkg of bacon out of freezer and will probably do a breakfast for supper a night this week. Hubby love it so that would work and be easy. Maybe two nights.
