Why #cooktoclearstock?Wednesday, March 29, 2017
Last week I had started the hashtag #cooktoclearstock for many reasons that persuaded me to share the events on Instagram so that I can be accountable from the start to finish.
I have resolved to cook with whatever I am left with in my kitchen pantry and fridge as a self imposed challenge to be kinda a minimalist cook 😊It is a win win. I get to finish off all the things that have been waiting to be used and F gets to save some 💰😊 You will be surprised with what all dishes you can actually come up with. Tonight's dinner was this #sweetcornpasta in tomato sauce flavoured with dried #basil and #creamcheesecubes served with store bought garlic bread. #piperegate #delico #almaraicreamcheese #cooktoclearstock
While I am a frugal shopper (labelled by F) (he is lucky we are in Yanbu!) I always end up at the "supermarket" in the "mall" and go through every aisle (even though I have a list) and pick up whatever I "feel" I should make and then come home - unpack and stuff all the things we got into the little space and then I go crazy trying to make up my mind on what to cook next. When there is a lot of things, the confusion is even more.
This act can be a way to add more savings or manage a tight budget situation, or just a way to help others by contributing the savings to someone in need!
Today is Day 10 and I have limited my grocery purchases to just a loaf of bread, can of milk and a kilo of onions. I am still left with 3 tomatoes and 3 apples, 13 eggs and some leftover potato filling from aloo paratha. Alhamdulillah.
