Food Friday: Stockpiles

Everyone once in a while around here, I get into “use it up mode.”  I look in my cabinets and think how I have ridiculous amounts of food stored in there.. And yes, I am lucky to have HUGE amounts of cabinet space.  So then I go into “use it up” mode.

Do I really need 5 boxes of spaghetti?  Or 4 jars of spaghetti sauce?  Well, maybe.  But not right now.

The thing that is putting me into this mode right now is a bunch of banana’s that has been sitting on the counter.  They are getting nice and ripe.  And will soon, sometime this weekend, be made into mini banana breads.  Which will also use up some butter (bought at Costco) and flour.  So it is a win-win.

I also have two huge jars of crunchy peanut butter (Costco),  which is overkill. The person in this house who eats crunchy peanut butter only does so about once every 6 months. So why the huge jars?  Guess  I will have to help.  And cans of ravioli.  Those will need to be pulled down from the top shelf for better visibility.

Two things I can absolutely NOT run out of is half and half and carrots

What do you stockpile?

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
