We are a few days into my refrigerator clean-out campaign and it's going very well. Tonight we had grilled pork chops that had been seasoned with a free seasoning from the grocery store. I used up the last two boxes of spinach with a creamed spinach recipe by Emeril Lagassi. Here's a link for that recipe: http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/getrecipe.zsp?id=15863

We had the best smoked salmon dip at Thanksgiving and had some leftover. So I put it on Ritz crackers and that was our "starch."

Using up items that have been in the freezer and fridge for awhile is a satisfying feeling. Tomorrow night I'll be trying Moo Shu chicken and use up some of the Chinese seasonings I've got. I bought some frozen egg rolls, and we'll be using "light thin tortillas" as our moo shu wraps.

Happy Cooking!

Hi Glynnis,
I just found your blog. How did the chicken dinner turn out? Sounds wonderful. What recipe did you use?

The chicken dinner turned out to be a pork dinner so I could use up leftovers from the night before. My family loved it, but I think it would have been better if I had used un-seasoned meat. Check out my post on December 7th for a link to the recipe.
