Today I used up an arm roast and two bags of stew vegetables from the freezer. Also finished off one container of brown rice. I am really trying to clear out stuff from the freezer and pantry.

1 - Made a big pot of beans in the crockpot
2 - Lunch o' leftover, Dinner - Pancakes and bacon
3 - Lunch: pasta w/ bacon; Dinner: sausage, cheesy grits, spinach salad
4 - Dinner: Wild Rice Quiche
11 - Fried Chicken - BOO!
12 - Waffles
13 - Lunch: chicken sandwiches, yellow bell pepper w/ hummus. Dinner: Shrimp fried rice!
14 - Leftovers for dinner and leftovers for lunch. Made some granola w/ DD this afternoon. It's quite good - I'll be repeating it as soon as we run out.
15 - Rice & Spicy Sausage in the slow cooker, from the "Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker" cookbook
16 - DH made tacos, I made the taco seasoning from spices on hand, and we used regular beans (on hand) instead of refried. Trying to get away from the packets of seasoning.
19 - Lunch: Chicken salad on leftover buns

30 - Crockpot beef stew, rice for next couple days
