How to make dinner when your fridge is empty

Updated: Oct 10, 2022

When I lived in Salt Lake City, the grocery store was less than a mile from my house. I could walk there in 5 minutes. To get to the store at my new house, I have to drive for 15 minutes on a 35 mile per hour country road. Still not terribly far, but it feels like an ETERNITY to me.

Because the store feels light years away, I often run out of fresh food before I have motivation to make a MEAL PLAN and shop. Can you relate?

I know meal plans are so important, but sometimes I just don't have it in me. When this happens, I have a few dinner plans up my sleeve to save the day (or just to save family dinner): rice a roni packets with frozen veggies, pumpkin curry and white chicken chili.

What do you make when your fridge is empty and your gumption to grocery shop is gone? Let me know in the comments or send me an email! I reply to every response I get!

Here's what we ate last week:

Monday (didn't wanna shop) Pumpkin Curry + rice + frozen mangoes (tip: I keep whole ginger in my freezer and grate it frozen)

Tuesday (didn't wanna shop) Rice-a-roni + frozen broccoli + nothing else, that's all we had.

Wednesday (still didn't shop) White chicken chili + tortillas

Thursday: homemade cheese and pepperoni pizza

Friday: Corn + poblano soup (click link for photo, "from a chefs kitchen")

Saturday: ham and cheese sandwiches + chips + carrot sticks + apples

I really didn't have the motivation to cook last week!
