Can't give you a list.........I just use whatever I feel like eating.

I will be doing better this month, as last month I was putting too many things into the freezer rather than taking them out.

But did good in the pantry thing..........still have a couple more items with MSG in them :thud: and don't want to toss them........so am going to use those first.

Will be glad when they are gone!!!

I just have a ton of stuff in the pantry that I need to get baking with. Un-opened flax seed too.

My freezer is probably crying for attention from me to feed it some stock.

yesterday I bought about 10 pounds of hamburger meat because I was totally out and it was the last day of the sale. That means I have now added 10 packs of uncooked hamburger meat and 2 packs of hot dog chili. I also cooked up all the pintos from the pantry but added 2 containers of cooked beans back to the freezer.

I also used up rolls(F), cake (P), rice (P), and cheese (F)

I am in again this month.
I did really well in October. But November will be another story since I want to stock up on all of the baking sales.
Hoping to use up some more freezer stuff and make room for Turkeys.
I have a list of stuff that is either close to expiration date or a little past that needs used up soon.

Don't blame you I have such severe reactions from that that I am out very sick for days if I accidentally get any MSG.

used up 3 bags of frozen pumpkin (F), sausage links (F), and instant grits (P).

I also processed our two Halloween pumpkins which yielded 11 new bags of frozen pumpkin to put in the freezer.
