You're all invited to dinner....

I just want to declare up front ...I am officially the spice queen of Australia. I counted and I have 53 different herbs and spices. Beat that. I am also the Cupcake Princess -having discovered I will need to make approximately 187,324 cupcakes in my lifetime to get rid of my current patty pan stash. I also have enough sprinkles to go on that number of cakes. I don't even LIKE baking.....

After my post yesterday about trying to find hidey holes for my grocery shopping I decided to take the bull by the horns and clean out and re-organise my pantry.  I'm pretty sure I did this about 6 weeks ago. By the way I have 15 packs of pasta. They ARE breeding.

The upshot of it all is that I've decided to only buy essential items  for the next 4 weeks. After doing the freezers (all 3 of them ) we dont need to buy meat for at least 6 weeks. I had 14 roasts alone dotted about the place. That's like almost a whole cow....

You're all invited to dinner , anytime you like. Just drop in . It's not like I dont have enough food and if you like tuna or beef  you'll be in hog heaven.

I am doing the same thing. I thought I had NOTHING in the pantry, turns out I had more than I thought. The freezer is overflowing, so no more purchasing for a month except my produce co-op and time to get a little bit more organized.

I am a spice-a-holic for sure. I love spices, spice shops can send me into a vertible melt down because I want one of everything. Muffin tins are another weakness. Yes, I love them so much that I own 13 different Nordic Ware pans for cakes and muffins.

We are two peas in a pod. Oh, and the microwave. Fly Guy folded. One has been ordered and will be here next week. Yeah, guess he didn't like warming up the good so much.

I am always amazed when I take stock of the food we have squirreled away here. With the exception of milk, sandwich fillings, and top up fruit we probably could get away with not shopping for at least a month.

Our grocery bill is around 900 a month. I wouldnt mind being able to put some of that away in savings!
