WIAW #45: operation clean out the fridge

Jesse and I will be doing some traveling over the next 4 days, going different directions for a while even, then one of us will be home before the other.  I didn’t do a normal grocery shopping trip this week because of that, and right now we’re making a point of eating up all of the things that could go bad while we’re gone, which is mostly fruits and veggies (wasted food = wasted money!).

check out Peas and Crayons to view other great WIAW link-ups!  Thanks to Jenn, as always :)

After doing some baking for Thanksgiving get-togethers, I had a couple cookies (monster cookies with Reese’s pieces).


Are you doing any cooking/baking for Thanksgiving?  If so, what are you making?

if you haven’t entered to win 3 boxes of Attune Foods cereals yet, make sure to head over and leave a comment!


  1. Yum! I could sure go for a “Salad Beast” right about now! :) As for cooking/baking, I made a sweet potato pie & carob squash pudding for me the other day, but those are about gone lol. Today I am making over my mom’s broccoli casserole recipe, prepping our cornbread stuffing (baking it tomorrow morning) and making my husband’s pecan pie! :)

    Wishes for safe travels & a blessed Thanksgiving!

  2. Oooh applesauce with PB2 and cinnamon, I love the sound of this! Good run time as well :)

  3. I actually hate applesauce unless it’s mixed with cinnamon and pb2. Have a great holiday week/weekend girl! <3

  4. Oh I’m exactly the same way, I absolutely HATE wasting food! I’m the queen of scraping off the mold and eating it anyway, haha. Usually, when I have to clean out the fridge, I throw all of my perishable vegetable into salad, stir fry with homemade peanut sauce or salad :)
