My problem in stockpiling is similar to my problem in blogging and a side affect of one of my personality traits, Spontaneity. I'm too freaking spontaneous for my own good. Sure its a great trait to have some times; if you want to take a road trip to see the Worlds Largest Ball of Twine or need some help moving our of your apartment in NYC at three in the morning; I'm your girl. Its not such a good trait to have with every day tasks, like grocery shopping. I'll go shopping without a list and just pick things I think I'll need or see a sale on something and go crazy with it.
So here's my goal for the week, and if you're up to it I encourage you to join me in it. My goal is not to throw away any of my fresh produce and to plan to use my stockpile in my general meal plans.
Today I used some veggie stock I had in the freezer, added some rice, fresh and frozen veggies and made a hearty stew. I used stuff I had in my stockpile to make some ridiculously good biscuits (the first ones I've ever home made!). I even have extra to give to a good friend going through a difficult time, some for me and Schmoop for lunch and also some to freeze for another night.
Any thoughts on stockpiling? Are there others like me or are you all masters of keeping your pantry in perfect proportions?
