did you miss it? the great purge just ended. a small idea of using up leftovers after the beginning of the year, somehow turned into a project with a life of it’s own. i went 20 meals, and nearly 2 months without buying protein or pantry ingredients to cook meals.
here is what it accomplished: cleaning out of both freezers and the pantry, making me be more creative in my cooking, inspiring others to clean out their food also
here is what it didn’t accomplish: saving money on groceries, getting the kids to eat more foods, or an answer to if i’m a food hoarder or not.
so, on ash wednesday (ironically) i bought protein! how exciting! is my life reduced to this – or defined by this. i guess we’ll see.
