The power outages made me assess what is and isn't necessary to have in the fridge and freezer. Things that seem, at the time, good deals, aren't good deals if I never use them or only use part of them before tossing.
It's been kind of a rough month, financially. It makes me second guess buying that ticket back in June for the upcoming Wheaton Ale Fest. Some things just didn't get paid, particularly if the bill was due at the end of the month. I've managed to squeeze some cash out of the budget so I could get kitty litter. That's been really important of late. And I've had to be more creative with lunch and supper and stretch the food I have. While cleaning out the freezer to take food to Pam's, I found, buried under the package of chicken breasts, one small Boboli pizza crust. I let it thaw. Now, what do I have to turn it into pizza.
I have cheese and I have hamburger.
It came out rather well. I need to use up the rest of the can of tomato sauce but this was the perfect meal for one person. I thought about making it stretch for lunch the next day, but it was too good. I'll bet I could make the meat sauce and freeze it in appropriately sized containers. Then, it would simply be a matter of grating cheese. The only part about this I really disliked was having to get down on my knees to look for the cheese grater in the bottom cupboard. That. Hurt. A. Lot.
