Trash Day!

December 30, 2014

Oh, Blog….I do miss you when I’m gone. it’s just that sometimes you are not at the top of the priority list, but the Holidays are now over (well, almost) and I can get back to my routine, and you and I can reunite.

When I do a big fridge and pantry clean out, I like to do it on Monday because Tuesday is Trash Day! I suppose this has more meaning in the summer months when the garage can get really hot, and the trash can become really stinky with food in it, but none the less, cleaning out the fridge the day before trash day is a habit that I have formed that keeps the fridge from becoming an unorganized mess of foods that no longer need to be in there! I do try hard not to let too many foods go bad, but this “trash day” had more to do with Holiday foods that HAD TO GO!

I tossed all candies, chocolates, cookies, sweet breads, crackers, chips, dips, coffee creamers and anything with a date that said it must go!

Then I went to the grocery store and stocked up on fruits and veggies! Two of the containers in my fridge now have cooked chicken and cooked quinoa in them.

The trash is gone and the good stuff is back! Yay Trash Day!



After organizing the fridge and the pantry, I actually got outside and walked 6 miles with a friend! After that, I took my pups for a one mile walk. It was a bit chilly, but not windy, so tolerable.

    Way to go Jenny!

    I sent lots of goodies home with various family members, but my daughter was staying here, so I hated to get rid of all of it, although it did cross my mind.

    I must admit, I wanted that pumpkin bread each morning for breakfast just as much as anybody else!

    Sounds like a great tradition!

    Thanks for the idea! I need to make me some Vegetable Soup!

  6. I started cleaning out and started nibbling SO I’m going to invite a friend over to watch our last Christmas movie on New Year’s Day and have vegetable soup (it’s traditional for us to do this and school work) and then I’ll clean out everything and take it to the dumpster.
