My Experience Doing the No Fridge challenge: Monday
(This is a continuation of my report of doing the Shelf Stable challenge in my ward. I had to live without a fridge or freezer for 2 1/2 days.)
Monday breakfast for 1 adult
I wanted cold cereal but couldn’t deal with putting warm powdered milk on it. Instead, I made hot cereal, so the warm powdered milk didn’t bother me.
2 packages of Maple and Brown Sugar instant oatmeal
1 tsp. powdered milk
Monday lunch for 2 adults
I made one box of Hamburger Helper.
1 box Hamburger Helper
a little powdered milk
1 pint canned ground beef (I canned this last year.)
Monday Supper for 1 adult
I made Turkey and Dressing Casserole, but substituted canned chicken. (There was about 3/4 of this left over.)
1 can chicken
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 Tablespoon powdered milk and 1/4 cup water.
1 can peas.
2 Tablespoons vegetable oil instead of butter
1 box Stovetop stuffing
I realized that I could only make a small meal each time, we couldn’t open more cans than we could consume since there is no refrigeration.
I am accustomed to making more than we can eat, and putting the rest in the fridge, and eating it for leftovers the next day.
I might rethink buying large cans. Small cans would be quicker to consume before they spoil from lack of refrigeration.
Monday night snack for 1 adult
I craved sweets so I made a little amount of buttercream frosting (powdered sugar, powdered margarine, powdered milk, water), stirred it until it was the right consistency, and ate it on graham crackers.
