I didn't see one for June so don't know if anyone is interested in keeping this going for July even tho it's been a long standing one.
I'm working on using up the older freezer and pantry items so I can restock with new expiration dates.

Thank you, went back and looked and I'd even posted in don't know whether to post July here or in the other one...not being labeled June threw me off...double ugh! of spaghetti sauce in fridge along with

Yesterday for supper I fixed MORE spaghetti. Luckily they asked for it so win win. So 1 leftover container of sauce used out of fridge and while digging found another with a small amount so dumped it in too. NOW I have THAT sauce back in fridge but only 1 small container.

Used almost a whole box of spaghetti noodles, not quite.
Half box of garlic bread.
Also found in fridge a container with about a cup or so of black bean chili so heated it up over some Tostitos with some shredded cheese. I had that. Really good.

Also 2 cans chicken that hubby found and made chicken salad.

So 2 containers out of fridge and working down on that large stockpile of spaghetti sauce and noodles so I can replace with new dates.
