this is my philosophy for the next two weeks while Dave and I pack our house up to move to Cleveland Heights, OH. Today I took stock of what we had in our cupboards and freezer to figure out how we could eat everything up and not have to move it. I had been debating about whether or not to pack our crockpot and breadmaker- two things we use on a weekly basis and two things that make our lives easier. For the sake of our sanity and our budget I decided that I’d rather use what we had, not pack or throw out the one cup of rye flour I had left and have bread ready to eat for the next two weeks. The thought of not baking anything for two weeks is actually very weird to me so I decided to get it all out of my system today. In trying to use what we had and not buy other stuff, I realized we had ingredients to meet our sweet tooth cravings, so I whipped up some of these:
These s’mores bars are awesome! Instead of the nuts on top I made a graham cracker topping and it was gooey, crunchy and chocolaty just like a smore. So besides using up what you have in your cupboards, what other moving advice to people have for me? Thankfully, Dave’s parents are coming on Wednesday to help watch Reuben so Dave and I can pack up the house. Some of our awesome students from Ferris are actually helping us pack up our house, driving down with us to cleveland and helping us move in. InterVarsity students are the best!
So in the midst of packing, selling stuff on craigslist/garage sales, finishing a paper for grad school, saying goodbye to my parents as they leave for Lebanon for two weeks, having a birthday party for Reuben at Mcdonald’s (another sanity saver), having Dave’s parents come to town, and getting ready to leave Grand Rapids, I’m happy that at least we’ll have good bread to eat 🙂
