So far, my attempts to eat through my freezer and pantry have been met with mixed success.
I mean, I’ve eaten quite a bit of food out of my freezer. But then I make something with it and have leftovers and more food goes back IN to my freezer.
That was not really the idea.
In an attempt to stop this pattern, I have NOT frozen the leftovers from a batch of Beef Bourguignon that I made earlier this week.
I made the Beef Bourguignon with a large piece of beef (locally raised, grass-fed, hormone-free of course) that I had in my freezer. GOOD.
One recipe of Beef Bourguignon makes enough to serve a single girl for about eight days. BAD.
Don’t get me wrong. I love Beef Bourguignon. It is one of my favorite foods ever and I make it really well (if I do say so myself). That being said, I think there is a limit to how many times I can eat Beef Bourguignon in a row. I’ve now had it four times AND shared it with friends. I still have some left. I want to eat it. Just not today. And probably not tomorrow.
But if I don’t eat it today or tomorrow, I should probably freeze it. Because throwing out perfectly good Beef Bourguignon is wrong.
So it will go back in to my freezer.
