Friday night we leave for a seven day vacation in Hawaii (hard life, I know), which meant that Sunday morning I had to practice a little bit of self restraint at Trader Joe’s. I have no intention of throwing food away before we leave, and no desire to come home to a moldy, smelly fridge. The only plate “plan”? Think ahead!
What can we totally consume in 5 days?
One thing we are definitely stocked up on: Chobani yogurt! They sent over some of their new, big (whoop!) 32 oz containers; my kitchen is delighted. I love Chobani, no secret there. Now, I can buy in bulk & save a few cents. Thanks, CHO!
That will go bad. Therefore, we have a lot of yogurt consuming to do in 5 days!
Other things on the for the week, courtesy of TJ’s:
- asparagus spears
- Chili seasoned Tilapia (taco time!)
- salad greens + veggies
- bananas, apples, grapefruits & pears
- Butternut squash
- ricotta & mozzarella cheese
- roasted red pepper hummus
With a host of things that will not expire on us while we’re gone, I have enough to creatively mix it up this week.
I also have a Recipe Redux challenge to tend to – a whole new grain will be featured, assuming I can figure out how to cook something other than quinoa (rice is out of the question).
All of this to say, I didn’t really plan entrees for the week ahead, but I do plan on that fridge staring at me with empty shelves before we leave.
What’s on your plate plan this week?
