Eating Every Day
Still eating every day! Trying to use up the freezer since I got a big delivery from Butcher Box and my freezer is quite full. Also trying to spread out grocery shopping.
I try, really I do, but we were out of bagels so I needed to make some but that meant some for the freezer. Off I went!
Meatballs stroganoff is an old recipe from my personal chef association. This is most similar to it. Of course there are leftovers and I have them in my plan.
I found corn chowder in the freezer and that was dinner with blueberry muffins from the freezer. I cannot find a recipe for the chowder! It was good - corn, bacon, broth but I have no idea how it came to be in the freezer.
More freezer food - Costco pierogies, boiled, sauteéd with sauteéd bacon and onions. So very good. I'm not sure Costco has them all the time, I buy them when I see them. Clearing the freezer!
I apparently was on a stroganoff kick. And I had mushrooms and dill to use up. I've made the dilled pork stroganoff many times. An old favorite. And a great lunch on Friday! I've been craving cake, but did not want to make cake so made brownies. I like fudgy brownies and this is my favorite, easy, one bowl, lots of chocolate. Half to the freezer (sigh).
My women's group meeting is every other Thursday now so I planned leftovers. When it came time for dinner, I was not in the mood for meat. Husband had a serving of meatballs, a serving went to the freezer (it will never be empty) and I made grilled cheese for me. We were both happy.
Decided to take time to cook on Friday and made chicken and dumplings. This is another recipe I have made many times. It takes a while, it is worth it.
We also (okay really husband) dug through the side yard for any remaining potatoes and found a few. I will try to plant more intentionally next year since potatoes are fun.
