Operation clear the Freezer!

Tuesday, 18 June 2013  |  Admin

I'm sure that some people don't get tempted into those special offer deals at the supermarket.  Although I try really hard to ignore them, sometimes they're just too good to miss out on and I think 'well, I can always chuck them into the freezer'.

The problem is with a chest freezer, things do tend to get buried.  And forgotten about.

I have literally been trying to clear my freezer since Christmas but although the volume dips sometimes, it's still 80% full (maybe 90%).

We're hoping to move house sometime in the next 6 weeks, so it's time now to take action and I'm blogging about it to inspire me and maybe some of you who are in the same boat! 

Here's my freezer contents now and meal plan for the week:

Meals

  • Large bag homemade chicken bhuna
  • 3 x Pizza Sauce
  • onion gravy
  • 3 x small portions homemade thai chicken
  • 1 x small portion puttanesca sauce
