Use it up, Wear it out, Make it do, or do Without

Day 15, and the fridge is looking much more airy.

What do eight borderline-soft carrots, six newly sprouting potatoes, half a bag of frozen peas, and an onion have in common?

They all go well with a couple cans of beef chunks and a double batch of buttermilk biscuits.

Yup. Beef stew, baby.

I’d have taken a better picture, but I was somewhat flustered–because my sixth grader just announced he needs–you guessed it–poster board.

Seriously?

The last hour of the last day of a two week vacation, and you just now remember you need poster board?

I so should have bought stock in that stuff twenty years ago.

And I’m SO not going to buy him some. We have a giant roll of painter’s paper. It’s green.

It will do–just like the potatoes.
