The Coffee Roundup

A few weeks ago I did an experiment with eating sort of “prepper” style with using mostly what we had in the pantry already and buying very few fresh ingredients.  We used up some of what we had on hand and this gave me the idea to do the same thing with our coffee “stash”.  We enjoy coffee possibly more than the average person…such that we have NINE bags of ground coffee in varying amounts hanging out in the cabinet and freezer.  I’m not even going to count the k-cups (let’s just say if the zombie apocalypse happens, I will be well caffeinated!) So this week I am going to try to refrain from using the Keurig (it’s sooooo fast though) and use the drip coffee maker instead.

For Monday we have Jamaican Blue Mountain dark roast that we bought in Jamaica on our vacation last year.  It’s all measured out and ready to go, just have to hit brew in the morning 🙂 Happy July 4th!


Prepping Practice, Day 2

I totally forgot to take pictures of my gyros, bummer!  They were wicked good!

Monday dinner: meatball gyros
Used up: 1/2 bag frozen meatballs, 1/2 bag frozen french fries
Bought Fresh: Tzatziki sauce, 1 tomato, flatbreads
Review: not like the real Greek ones but close enough. I’ve tried making my own tzatziki and it just never comes out the same, but now I’m left with 1/2 container of it so I’m going to be looking for another recipe to use that up (maybe in egg salad?)

Tuesday dinners are ALWAYS tacos (thank you Lego Movie) so the plan is to jazz them up a little with frozen corn and canned beans of some sort…
