We are back in the kitchen trying to keep cooking at home this month to clean out our freezer and save some money. We usually do a “No Buy January” to clean out our pantry and freezer. This year because of life we did a clean out in November but decided to do a modified version this month. We are eating out of the freezer and pantry this month but I had to buy some meat to start the month with. We had a bit of ham and turkey in the freezer with a bit of fish and seafood but not enough to get us through the month. A small shop and we are off!
Want to join in? Take stock of what you have on hand and try to use that up! Then you can clean your freezer (chest, upright, or refrigerator) and get ready to start February fresh. Do this twice a year – I recommend January and June, and you will be ready to stock your freezers with leftover casseroles, soups, etc… for those nights you don’t want to cook in winter and then in June to stock your freezer with delicious fruits and vegetables grown over the summer.
This was a great way to start our no buy month as these chops were on sale when I bought them AND they use a bag of stuffing mix we had left in the pantry from November for Thanksgiving. I served this with green beans and mashed potatoes. My kids both put a drizzle of steak sauce over their pork chops to add a bit of flavor to the meat. That is up to you.
