    Sometimes when we have a lot of odds and ends in our fridge, we have a “leftovers” night. Those little bits of food seem to be the most likely to go to waste for us. It’s kind of fun to eat up a lot of leftovers–we let the kids pick what they want and my husband and I clean up the rest of it.

    A lot of my cooking is “eat through”. I will look in the pantry and freezer and see what we have a lot of and base my meals on that.

    1. Kris! LOL! We do the same thing – we eat what the kids don’t but now that our kids are old enough they thank us. It’s sweet. We call it “going clean-up” and honestly – it applies to much of parenting! :)
      Thanks, Kris. I enjoy your comments and getting little snippets of your life.

    1. There are just two of us, and we cook almost every night, so we always have leftovers. I try to freeze as much as possible, but we do have “leftovers” night at least once a week.
    2. What is your Italian Stew? I love Italian.
    3. I never thought of freezing spinach that’s about to go bad. Thanks for that!
    4. I’ve learned so much from you, Sara. So glad I found your blog!

    1. Vanessa! Thank you – I’m glad you found my blog, too!
      I love Italian, too, and the stew is really just chicken thighs, broth, mushrooms, artichokes – and honestly – the very last of the thyme that I could pull off of the plant! It was basically me tossing in the stems of the herb. To me, thyme is a necessary ingredient when all those others come together.
      I try and freeze everything before it goes bad. Cooked potatoes and sour cream don’t really work frozen but aside from that – anything goes! LOL!
      Thanks so much for reading, Vanessa. I enjoy your comments. :)

    Growing up, we called it Must Go (as in, “this must go, and this must go . . .” ). Now we call it Found Objects Dinner and is often very good, creating a dish from whatever you find. Coincidently – I’m doing an Eat Through week this week, using up items in the freezer, supplemented with some fresh vegetables from the store.
