Cleaning Out The Frig

                                                               Everyday is a brand new day, everyday is a journey.

One there lives whose guardian eye
  Guides our earthly destiny;
  One there lives, who, Lord of all,
  Keeps His children lest they fall;
  Pass we, then, in love and praise,
  Trusting Him through all our days,
  Free from doubt and faithless sorrow,--
  God provideth for the morrow.

When the children were small, I remember very well watching The Cosby Show. It was one of the favorites to watch a family that obviously loved each other very much. There was an episode where the entire family was cleaning out the refrigerator. It was like a special day with a special dinner, because that night they made supper with all the leftovers in the refrigerator. There wasn't a single completed dish, but plenty of small bits and pieces of everything else edible.

Well, we've been doing the same thing ever since that episode aired. It truly is a great way to clean out the frig and prepare it for the new groceries that are coming within a day or two. I mean, who doesn't eat leftovers?

First, I have to admit that I really dislike cleaning the refrigerator or any deep cleaning similar to it. I have often said that Emily would clean the frig whenever she was in trouble as a child. She doesn't do it anymore. She grew up. Too bad.

Our "clean out the frig suppers" usually consist of some sort of pasta or grain from the pantry like rice. We do need some substance added to the brussel sprouts or green beans. Somehow, we always seem to fill our stomachs satisfactorily. It just shows you that as a society we are overfed. No one likes leftovers, yet they are filling. 

Today our leftover supper consisted of white rice, brussel sprouts, peas, pickles, pickled artichokes and some fruit salad. Not bad if I say so myself. It was all edible and quite tasty. Oh yes, and one mozzarella stick. 

Do you have a leftover day or perhaps a clean your frig day?
What are some of the unusual family dinners that you have had? Would love to hear about them. What are you eating today? I guess it doesn't matter. It's not the food, it's the company.

Have a blessed day everyone.
