MONTHLY MEAL PLANNING

Last month I used Chart Jungle to create a meal plan for the month. This worked out really well for us. We still grocery shop for the week, but now I don't have to think about what to get and our list is a bit smaller. This month I noticed that Chart Jungle also has a food inventory chart. I thought it would be an excellent idea to make a list of all the stuff we still have (in the freezer and canned on the shelf). An even better idea is to turn the food inventory chore into a drinking game.

Game rules:

Take a drink any time you come across the following: can of crushed pineapple (We had five cans, plus a can of tidbits because Chris is really an 80 year old retiree.), can of chicken noodle soup (don't ask), miscellaneous items like canned spreadable cheese or canned dolma (I understand the dolma, but the canned cheese was left by aliens), frozen salmon filets (there's a whole unopened bag in there!), bag of frozen berries (Again...did I mention Chris is really 80?).

*By now you probably need to refill that drink.

Empty glass whenever you come across something completely unrecognizable in the freezer.

It's amazing that I'm still able to type.
