Hopefully by this time next year, my husband will finally be done with his more than 10 year stint of college and graduate school – Hallelujah! He will be adding a PhD to his two bachelors’ and master’s degrees.
Since we only have about a year left in our current apartment, I want to make sure I start utilizing all the food in our pantry because I don’t like having to waste things when we move. No matter how hard I try to stay on top of things, it always seems like there are items in our pantry that were purchased, then never used and now they have long been forgotten.
In order to avoid having to throw these things away, every week I am going to base at least one of my meals on a food item I need to use up. This week the item is from the fridge, Feta Cheese. I recently rediscovered this fun pasta salad that requires Feta Cheese. It is really quite tasty.
Monday: Feta Cheese and Chicken Pasta Salad and fruit
Tuesday: Sweet and Sour Meatballs, rice and veggies
Thursday: Chili Mac Skillet and Fruit
Friday: Clean out the fridge day
Saturday: Santa Fe Chicken Salad and fruit
Sunday: My day off
