Coined by Jill Bond (who wrote Dinner’s in the Freezer!), “C.O.R.D.” stands for “Clean Out the Refrigerator Day.”  Sometimes Jill Bond would make C.O.R.D. soup with what was in her ‘fridge, but quite often she just set everything out in a buffet.  I loved picking up this book off of my mom’s shelf and perusing all the recipes and ideas!

Anyway, this week, my refrigerator looks like a bomb went off in there, so we’re going to eat and eat and eat whatever I find that’s still good (including the butternut squash ravioli and chicken enchiladas from last week) until it’s gone.  And then I’m going to the freezer and organizing there.  Whew.

That said, the plan for tonight is chicken enchiladas, tomorrow is ravioli, and Wednesday is chef salad.  Thursday my husband and I are celebrating together (an “inside” celebration), so maybe dinner out?  And the weekend?  Lots and lots of veggies, because it’s time to finish up with the garden and go to the farmer’s market!  I’m also planning to eat up the Magic Cookie Bars I made with my sister and brother-in-law who were here visiting.  I miss them.   *sniff*

Oh, and snacks are coming from Kaia Foods [now "Alive and Radiant"]….  YUM!!  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway to win some snacks for yourself!

One thought on “C.O.R.D.

  1. [I have copied and pasted comments left prior to the 2014 blog transfer.]

    “CORD–love it. I mostly did this before we left town to visit my family!
    How was your visit with Emily and Christian?”

    “Between house sitting and traveling (miss you already!), there haven’t been enough leftovers for a C.O.R.D. However, I have been thinking about getting started in menu planning. I even had it in mind when I bought my weekly planner… it’s one of the biggest ones they had, so plenty of room for menus and shopping lists, or at least reminders to keep on top of it. :-) I began tonight by making a double-batch of a new recipe: Corn and Summer Squash Chowder, from Cookinglight.com! I did use 2% milk and added extra salt, but still pretty healthy, and SO yummy. Maybe this time there will actually be enough leftovers to be freezer-worthy, even after Christian finishes with it. Haha.”
