The “Eating Down the Fridge” challenge

The Green Fork Blog the other day posted about this article from the Washington Post: “Eating Down the Fridge.”

The basic premise is simple: In the wake of the Thanksgiving holiday, eat or freeze your leftovers, and then take a week off grocery shopping. Challenge yourself to see what’s in that tall cold box in the kitchen and see what fun and innovative meals might be lurking in its depths.  It’s interesting to contemplate how much annual grocery money might be saved by making a habit of this, you know?  Food for thought (pun intended)…

It’s too late for us; we already went Sunday, mostly because the previous week we only bought Thanksgiving stuff and were out of some of what my family considers to be “staples”–cereal, milk, stuff like that.  But we may try it some other week, just see what happens.

  1. I hardly have anything left in the fridge by the end of the week. Our fridge is tiny btw, so we use less electricity.
