I had typed up a post on Sunday but got logged out and lost it
I have lots of cauliflower and peas in the garden right now and red lentils in the pantry so Saturday I made Indian food - red lentil soup with cauliflower and grain free samosas with potato/cauliflower/pea filling. I also had a big pile of rhubarb from the farm stand the week before so I made a rhubarb chutney to have with the samosas and froze the rest. It was all delicious, though a bit time consuming! Breakfast and lunch were leftovers.
Sunday - eggs and hasbrowns for breakfast, leftovers for lunch, roasted tomato soup (from jarred pantry tomatoes), polenta fries and french bread for dinner
Monday 4th - eggs/toast for me, husband made french toast for the girls with leftover french bread, leftovers for lunch, dinner we grilled out hotdogs and a couple small leftover steaks from the freezer that my parents left after their visit in June (they stayed a week and left us their leftover food!) plus roasted potatoes and salad from the garden
Tuesday - egg/toast for breakfast for me and hubby - girls had cereal. Leftover steak on salad for husband and I for lunch. Little one is having PBhoney on an english muffin and apricots (I bought a 24# box of #2s
a couple weeks ago so we are eating a ton of them), older DD is at a friend's house. Dinner will be chicken soft tacos with chipotle slaw (cabbage from the garden)
Minor grocery run Sunday for lemons, limes, avocados, salsa. I have several quarts of frozen beans in the freezer and those things will help me turn those into good meals. Debating about whether to allow myself to buy coffee when I run out.....I have plenty of green tea so I can have that, but....coffee!
I need to make some things my girls can snack on. We've been out of crackers for a week so they aren't having their usual go to cheese/crackers/fruit snack. Anyone have a good cracker recipe? I've got plenty of flour and other ingredients......
This afternoon I'm trying a sandwich bread recipe. I usually make a no knead boule, which is great and versatile but my girls don't like it for sandwiches. Hope it turns out! I may also make some muffins....I've got a variety of frozen fruit left from last summer that I need to use up.
Spending some time meal planning today.
