I finally cleaned out the deep freezer yesterday. I am ashamed to say that I had been procrastinating about it for quite some time. The freezer had been pretty full and it was all from some ***very*** old items down at the bottom from before I got my act together on meal planning and stockpiling. I knew they were down there but I just was dreading the process. So finally yesterday hubby and I pulled everything out, got rid of the old items, and reassembled the freezer with the items I need to use up first at the front and center. I feel much more organized now, and with the freed up space, it will be easier to find things for sure.
I created this week's plan around items that I need to use, as well as hubby's creations from the smoker. Sunday's meal is much more than we typically spend for one meal, but it's the big game, and it's still a lot less than we would spend to go out. 7 dinners for 4 this week work out to about $37.
