I'll need to run to the store to pick up a few things and can get a few additional ingredients, but I'd really like to keep this week's grocery bill to a minimum and really focus on using what I already have. I'll probably only need 3-4 good dinners since we eat at a friend's house once a week and we also usually eat leftovers at least once or twice. I have the following things already on-hand:
Lots of staples like pasta, beans, canned tomatos, rice, frozen veggies, etc.
LOTS of fresh veggies including butternut squash, 3 lbs. of sugar snap peas, peppers, celery, carrots, a bunch of salad mix/baby spinach and a few other things.
A 2 lb. chuck roast, lots of chicken, a smoked turkey sausage, a package of pancetta, frozen wild salmon, a pack of bacon, 1 lb. of ground bison meat, some frozen tuna steaks and proscuitto.
So- if you had any of these things available what would sound good to you for dinner? Bonus points for meals that are fast and easy clean-up during the week (ie: everything roasted in one pan, cooked in one pot, everything cooked in the oven on foil-lined pans, etc- I just don't want to have to wash multiple pots/pans/baking dishes.) More elaborate meals that involve extra prep/cooking/dishes are cool on the weekends when we have more time...
