update: operation clean-out

Hey Guys!

How did I do on my eating challenge?

Well….. I did PRETTY well I think! I do have a few confessions that I will start with, but I also realized that this challenge forced me to get creative in the kitchen towards the end as well as realize the over-abundance of food that I had/have. With so many hungry people out there, I really took a step back and realized I was kind of living a life of excess. Now I still love food and cooking but I’m going to work on being a little more mindful in my grocery shopping. An on-going challenge!


– Some trail mix from Tar-jay that was calling my name

– Happy Hour sushi…trying to come up with a good excuse…nothing is coming to mind :/

-And some of this….because I love it and had to go to the Co-op for a “work-related” trip…

But here are some of my successful clean-out meals:

Pesto Pasta (with some chicken for the taster)

Grilled Shrimp with salad and bread

Crostini (recipe coming soon, SO good!)

Roasted Veggies (Brussels, sweet potato, red onion and zucchini) and Bacon-wrapped scallops
Check out this fridge!!! I’m so happy that I *somewhat* succeeded because today we head out of town for the next week and a half and there will be no spoilage in that fridge!

Have a fabulous Friday friends!!!!
