A quart of organic, CSA home canned tomatoes (only one quart left, then I move to my pints. With fewer at home, pints are a better size for me now). I also added some fine egg noodles (with more than just what is left in this jar)
I now have 6 individual lunch sized containers of soup prepared (3 in the fridge, 3 in the freezer) as well as a meal sized one as an emergency back up for dinner this week. Once again, we have late afternoon appointments to contend with as well as getting an economical, nutritious meal on the table. If I feel pressed for time, and especially as the forecast calls for rain/snow mix which means damp and raw weather, a big bowl of homemade soup may prove to be just the ticket on such a night. If not eaten come Wed, I'll decant the rest of the soup into meal sized containers and freeze that as well.
The fridge is in great shape: produce and dairy replenished, leftovers for the most part gone (meatloaf and chicken salad for sandwiches early this week, soup as well for work lunches, one serving of coleslaw).
