When I cook meals that are intended to empty my fridge, or lots of containers in them with only a little ingredient in each, I call them apocalyptic meals.
They’re symbolically apocalyptic in a few ways:
- They wipe out a lot of the food left, if not all of it.
- There is no food left for tomorrow, cause you’re assuming there won’t be a tomorrow. 🙂
Seriously, why call them empty out the fridge meals, or some term like quiche that’s a mish-mash of leftovers, when you can use a more potent term like apocalyptic meal? Sounds great on the phone, too!
“I’m cooking an apocalyptic meal for supper!”
