I love this question and topic! Aren’t you always curious to hear how others pull together last-minute meals and use what they have on hand? I personally try to go grocery shopping once a week – that’s it. I feel the less I am shopping, the less I am spending. It’s very easy to go to the grocery store and purchase a few items I hadn’t planned on purchasing.
Oh this product sounds amazing… I’ve got to try it. It’s only $1.50. No biggie!
Yep… that’s what I say to myself at various times in the grocery store. And, well, that $1.50 quickly changes to an extra $10 to $20 added to my bill. Now I do try to shop with cash (& coupons!) – which does help, but not when you put back a product that’s on your list only to buy an amazing new product you’ve spotted. Oh Collin, you’ve got such self-control in the grocery store! 😉
OK… so back to the point of this post. I would love to hear from all of you, some last-minute, let me pull together what’s left in my fridge and pantry, meal ideas!
And to start, here’s mine…
On almost a weekly basis, we have omelets for dinner. I love omelets because you can literally take all of the veggies you have on hand and even leftovers from a previous meal to make an incredibly delicious omelet. Tonight I used leftover ground chicken from a previous meal and miscellaneous veggies to create a “Taco-Style” omelet! I topped it with avocado and fresh cilantro. Super simple and oh so good!
(Not sure if this looks appetizing… but it was delicious! :D)
Now YOUR turn!
