Another reason for the sort out is to make room for a meat order I'll be doing shortly from our village butcher. We don't eat meat everyday, but I much prefer to buy from a butcher than from the supermarket. It's worth spending a bit more for the quality.
I've come across lots of bits and bobs that I can use up over the next few weeks too.
My fridge freezer is mainly used for ice cream and lollies and leftovers that I've frozen. I've had a tidy up and made room for the individual meals I'll put in containers after my batch cooking.
My next task after lunch is being ruthless with my cookbooks! I have so many and I just don't use them all. I tend to bake from my vintage cookbooks now, but cook meal recipes from the more modern ones (although the seventies retro ones are my favourites) so I'm challenging myself to get rid of half of them. Those will go off to the charity shop.
I also have a box of recipes I've collected in various folders. That needs looking at but can wait for another day.
I'll let you know how I get on!
